12: #Software requirements
14: Before you can use pkgsrc, you may need a few packages installed on your Linux system upfront.
16: * gcc (and libstdc++)
17: * libncurses-devel
18: * zlib and zlib-devel
19: * openssl-devel (optional but required for some packages)
21: 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.
23: #Troubleshooting bootstrap
24: ##Shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible
26: If you see this error
28: ERROR: Your shell's echo command is not BSD-compatible.
30: This error is known to occur if /bin/sh is linked to /bin/dash (recent Ubuntu versions).
32: The fix is to issue the following before commencing bootstrap: export SH=/bin/bash
33: ##ARG_MAX undeclared
35: If bootstrap stops at
37: In file included from glob.c:12:
38: __glob13.c: In function globextend:
39: __glob13.c:836: error: ARG_MAX undeclared (first use in this function)
41: Then apply this patch (http://mail-index.netbsd.org/pkgsrc-bugs/2008/06/21/msg026977.html)
44: If bootstrap stops at
46: /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c: In function 'Arch_Touch':
47: /usr/pkgsrc/bootstrap/work/bmake/arch.c:1038: warning: ignoring return
48: value of 'fwrite', declared with attribute warn_unused_result
49: *** Error code 1
51: This error occurs because Linux uses -DFORTIFY_SOURCES by default. Bootstrap can be achieved by:
53: CFLAGS="-U_FORTIFY_SOURCE" ./bootstrap
55: ##libncurses not installed
57: If bootstrap stops at
59: ERROR: This package has set PKG_FAIL_REASON:
60: ERROR: No usable termcap library found on the system.
62: Then install the libncurses-dev package
64: On an RPM based system this might be via 'yum install ncurses-devel', and on a debia/ubuntu system 'apt-get install ncurses5-dev'
