P.M.F. - 7. Compile Problems - Specific Packages
P.7.1: A Falla la compilación de un paquete con errores involucrando a
R.: This can happen if your login script (e.g.
does something that writes to the terminal, e.g "
xttitle. To get rid of the problem, the
easy solution is to comment out the offending lines.
If you want to keep the echo, then you can do something like the following:
if ( $?prompt) then echo Hello endif
P.7.2: Quiero cambiarme a los paquetes XFree86 de Fink, pero no puedo instalar
xfree86, porque existe un conflicto con
R.: All flavors of X11, unfortunately, really needs to be installed in
/usr/X11R6. Because of this the Fink
xfree86-rootless packages install there, too. However,
since Fink won't remove any files that aren't in its database, it
won't automatically replace a non-Fink installation of X11.
Here's how to proceed:
Note: 10.2.x users with up-to-date versions of Fink (>= 0.16.2) and 10.3.x users should skip step 1 below (it won't work anyway).
system-xfree86. If you don't have any
packages that depend on X11, this is straightforward. Frequently,
however, many packages that depend on X11 are installed. Rather than
uninstalling all of them, you can use
sudo dpkg --remove --force-depends system-xfree86
to remove it, leaving everything in place. If you don't have
system-xfree86 installed then proceed to step 3.
2. Manually remove all of XFree86. This can be done with
sudo rm -rf /Applications/XDarwin.app /usr/X11R6
If you are switching from Apple X11, remove the X11 application, too.
3. To get XFree86-4.2.1, Install Fink's
xfree86-rootless packages by the usual means:
fink install" for source users, "
dselect for binaries.
3a. To get XFree86-4.3.x, install Fink's
package, with "fink install xfree86"--this version isn't in the binary
distro yet, and is currently only in the unstable tree [FAQ 3.9].
P.7.3: ¿Cómo puedo cambiar de la version non-threaded del paquete XFree86 de Fink a la version threaded (o viceversa)?
R.: If you are running the Fink version of XFree86 and you want to switch between the threaded and non-threaded versions of Fink, you need to manually remove the old version. This is done at the command-line with the commands:
sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-base sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-shlibs sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-rootless sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-rootless-shlibs
or to delete the threaded versions:
sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-base-threaded sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-shlibs-threaded sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-rootless-threaded sudo dpkg -r --force-depends xfree86-rootless-threaded-shlibs
FinkCommander also has a way to remove packages. In the source
window, select a package, and then in the
Source Menu use
If you are using system-xfree86, see the previous question for removing it.
Install the version of xfree86 you want:
by the usual means: "
fink install" for source users,
apt-get install" or
P.7.4: ¿Cuando intento instalar KDE, me sale el siguiente mensaje: 'Can't resolve dependency "cctools (>= 446-1)"'
R.: This somewhat cryptic message means you need to install the December 2002 Developer Tools.
P.7.5: I can't update
R.: If you get errors of the form:
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/sw/lib/libiconv.la'
you can solve this problem by running
fink remove gettext-dev fink install libiconv
P.7.6: i can't install a package because
c++filt is missing. Where do I get it?
R.: If you get errors of the form
xgcc: installation problem, cannot exec `c++filt': No such file or directory
since updating to Tiger, then you need to do the following:
BSD.pkg(from your installation media). If
/usr/bin/c++filtdoesn't appear, keep trying.
You also might also need to make sure you don't have any ancient Developer/Xcode Tools stuff laying around:
- 10.4: Flush out your old Xcode Tools versions via running
/Developer/Tools/uninstall-devtools.plin a terminal. Then (re)install XCode (2.4.1 or later).
- 10.5: Flush out your old Xcode Tools versions via running
/Developer/Library/uninstall-devtoolsin a terminal. Then (re)install Xcode (3.0 or later).
1) Flush out your old 2) Reinstall BSD.pkg (from your main OS install)
P.7.7: Fink refuses to update the
complaining that the dependencies are in an inconsistent state.
R.: After running
fink selfupdate to be sure you
have the latest versions, try
fink update gettext-tools.
An old version of the
gettext-tools package may be
preventing you from updating
P.7.8: I can't install gtk+2 on OS 10.5
R.: Typically this involves missing libraries, such as:
/usr/X11/lib/libXdamage.1.1.0.dylib (or other versions of libraries in
The current wisdom on the best fix for such an issue is to install Xcode 3.1.3 or later.
P.7.9: I'm having issues with a package that isn't listed here.
R.: Since package problems tend to be transient, we've decided to put them up on the Fink wiki. Check the Package issues page.
