13: #Software requirements
15: Before you can use pkgsrc, you may need a few packages installed on your Linux system upfront.
17: * gcc (and libstdc++)
18: * libncurses-devel
19: * zlib and zlib-devel
20: * openssl-devel (optional but required for some packages)
22: The names may vary, depending on what Linux distribution you are using. Also be mindful of the platform you are using (eg. i686 vs. x86_64 - some have different pre-required packages). Also note that some very basic tools such as file, patch, sed, and others are required, as well.
24: #Troubleshooting bootstrap
25: ##Shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible
27: If you see this error
29: ERROR: Your shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible.
31: This error is known to occur if /bin/sh is linked to /bin/dash (recent Ubuntu versions).
33: The fix is to issue the following before commencing bootstrap: export SH=/bin/bash
34: ##ARG_MAX undeclared
36: If bootstrap stops at
38: In file included from glob.c:12:
39: __glob13.c: In function globextend:
40: __glob13.c:836: error: ARG_MAX undeclared (first use in this function)
42: Then apply this patch (http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bugs/2008/06/21/msg026977.html)
45: If bootstrap stops at
47: /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c: In function 'Arch_Touch':
48: /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c:1038: warning: ignoring return
49: value of 'fwrite', declared with attribute warn_unused_result
50: *** Error code 1
52: This error occurs because Linux uses -DFORTIFY_SOURCES by default. Bootstrap can be achieved by:
54: CFLAGS="-U_FORTIFY_SOURCE" ./bootstrap
56: ##libncurses not installed
58: If bootstrap stops at
60: ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
61: ERROR: No usable termcap library found on the system.
63: Then install the libncurses-dev package
65: On an RPM based system this might be via 'yum install ncurses-devel', and on a Debian/Ubuntu system 'apt-get install libncurses5-dev'
