Expect - Installation Woes
Posted by dvorak_user (dvorak_user), 16 April 2008Update: still no luck. Right now, I'm not even worrying about tcl-dp, as I can't even get Expect to compile properly. I'm using tcl8.0p2, tk8.0p2, and expect-5.30 (all from http://expect.nist.gov/src/). Any help at this point would be tremendously appreciated.
Hello, again! Right now, I'm trying to install expect on a new linux machine. Here's the version info:
OS: Fedora 7
This computer is specifically for using Tcl-DP, whose newest version is 4.02b and highest-supported Tcl version is 8.0; because of that, I'm pretty much stuck with the versions above, although I could always opt for an older version of Expect.
The installation hits a few problems, but it does finish. However, it's less than ideal:
Other commands, like expect and exp_send, do work (although they're certainly not useful without a spawned process).
Installation errors I saw (all source files are in /home/lfischer/Desktop):
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
Edit: These are the commands I am using (within the expect-5.30 folder in Desktop)
# make test
# make install
