Ticket #10454 (closed defect: worksforme)
build dependencies and build failure
|Reported by:||Chelmite||Owned by:|
The build dependencies on https://www.virtualbox.org/wiki/Linux%20build%20instructions include python2.5-dev, and not pdflatex.
python2.5-dev is not found by apt-get on Ubuntu 11.10. It did find python-dev.
The build fails because it cannot find pdflatex. I poked around and found pdfjam, which I think fixed it.
However, the build (kmk all) fails with the following message
... kBuild: pdflatex /local/usr/local/src/vbox-dev/out/linux.amd64/release/obj/manual/fr_FR/UserManual.tex (four passes) -> /local/usr/local/src/vbox-dev/out/linux.amd64/release/obj/manual/fr_FR/UserManual.pdf This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-1.40.10 (TeX Live 2009/Debian) entering extended mode kmk: *** [/local/usr/local/src/vbox-dev/out/linux.amd64/release/obj/manual/fr_FR/UserManual.pdf] Error 1 kmk: *** Waiting for unfinished jobs.... kmk: *** Exiting with status 2
