Compiling on Fedora 14

M E's picture

I've been trying for many hours to get OpenCascade to compile on Fedora 14. Following the directions in the readme results in "make install" executing a fork bomb which forces you to reboot your system. If I just do a ./configure, it succeeds, but then Make gives me the following:

[matt@george ros]$ make
cd . && /bin/sh /home/matt/hobby/OpenCASCADE6.3.0/ros/make/missing --run aclocal-1.7
cd . && \
/bin/sh /home/matt/hobby/OpenCASCADE6.3.0/ros/make/missing --run automake-1.7 --foreign Makefile
Useless use of /d modifier in transliteration operator at /usr/bin/automake-1.7 line 5985.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thanks,

Run 'autoreconf -fi' to use a newer automake which understands SUBDIRS containing slashes.
You will likely get into other problems, maybe you should try to rebuild an RPM package, for instance from
https://build.opensuse.org/package/files?package=OpenCascade&project=Education%3ASalome%3AFactory

Did you ever get this figured out. I am trying to install on Fedora 14 now. Any tips appreciated. Thanks, Dave
