Configure on Solaris 5.8


I am trying to compile root on Solaris 5.8. First, I want to disable a few modules:

./configure --disable-xml --disable-builtin-freetype

But that doesn’t seem to work and gives this error:

Configuring for solarisCC5
Checking for libX11 … /usr/lib
Checking for X11/Xlib.h … /usr/include
Checking for libXpm … /usr/local/lib

Checking for libfreetype version >= 9.3.0 … ./configure: freetype-config: not found
./configure: test: argument expected

I am using the HEAD (from July 4th). Anybody an idea what is going wrong here?

Thanks, Frank

Hi Frank,

your Solaris does not have an up to date enough libfreetype to be able to work with ROOT. Do not use the --disbale-builtin-freetype (anyway I’ll fix the problem in configure that it does not continue in this case).

Cheers, Fons.
