Problems with geopsy installation on CentOS 5.7

Post by usgsuser »


I'm installing geopsy on CentOS 5.7. I've installed the latest version of Qt from the Nokia site.

I'm still running into problems with the freetype library thought.. When I compile I get the following error.

Here is the output of my configure..

[root@localhost geopsypack-57items-src-2.4.2]# ./configure

GeopsyPack is now configured for building, Just run 'make'.
Once everything is built, you must run either

$ su -c make install, if root privileges are needed;
$ make install, if user permissions are sufficient.

The current configuration options are stored in 'configure.cache'.
To change the configuration, run './configure [options]'.


Here is the error I get from my make..


/opt/QtSDK/Desktop/Qt/474/gcc/lib/ undefined reference to `FcFreeTypeQueryFace'
/opt/QtSDK/Desktop/Qt/474/gcc/lib/ undefined reference to `FT_Library_SetLcdFilter'

Do any of you have ideas on what could be causing this? I've tried doing the tricks as described in ... eQueryFace. I'm still having no luck.

We are also running CentOS on the lab servers and I remember a problem like this when I compiled Geopsy some one or two years ago. I guess that if your try to run "designer" from Qt library package, it is the same result.

Can you install Qt libraries through CentOS instead of downloading it from Qt?
What is the available Qt release?
Did you compile Qt or did you install a binary package?
I cannot find my email exchanges about this problem, but it was linked to a too old version of fontconfig in CentOS. Try to compile a recent version of fontconfig, mine under Gentoo is fontconfig-2.8.0
