Re: Make problem - Ubuntu 11.10

Mike Schonberg <mschonberg@...>

I am trying to compile the OpenMAMA software on Ubuntu 11.10 but am
having trouble doing so. After ./configure, sudo make throws an error.
This is the error I am getting:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lwombatcommon
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[5]: *** [] Error 1
make[5]: Leaving directory
make[4]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory

What can I install to get this working? Or will this software only work
on Redhat/SUSE distributions?
Although we do most of our testing on Redhat and SUSE, OpenMAMA will build on Ubuntu. From Your errors, it appears that you do not have flex installed. You will also need uuid-dev. See for a list of prerequisites for building OpenMAMA.
