How to install FFTW 3.3.3

Asked by Marina Marcuschi on 2013-02-08

Hi,

I am kind of a noob. I just intalled UBUNTU and I don't quite know my ways around yet.
I can't seem to be able to install the FFTW 3.3.3 package. I tryed the simple "./configure; make; make install" on the terminal, but I got errors all over the place. How should I proceed? I think I need to edit the "config.h header", but I don't understand how to do it.

Thanks,

Marina M.

Is there not a PPA?

What release of Ubuntu are you running? What is the exact text of the error messages?

Please open an terminal (e.g. by simultaneously pressing the ctrl-alt-t keys) and issue the following commands:

lsb_release -a
uname -a
# cd to the directory where the fftw3 installation kit is
./configure
make
make install

Then select all output (using the terminal menu entry "edit - select all"), copy it ("edit - copy"), and paste all output as new message into this current question document.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:staticfloat/julia-deps
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install fftw3

Will do it.

Thanks actionparsnip, that solved my question.

Folks is it normal that on saucy doing:
 nm /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfftw3.so
gives:
nm: /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libfftw3.so: no symbols

It seems that 'strip' is overdone a little :(
