impossible to build scim from source

Asked by Chenglong on 2010-03-23

Hello,

I just try out the lucid beta 1 and I want to rebuild SCIM.

It seems the base build system is upgraded, so I have called "autoreconf -i". But There are still some errors. Can somebody fix the problem?

Thanks and regards.

It isn't impossible at all, there is scim on the repos so it MUST be possible. It's even in Lucid so at least one person can compile it:

andy@fileserver:~$ apt-cache policy scim
scim:
  Installed: (none)
  Candidate: 1.4.9-2
  Version table:
     1.4.9-2 0
        500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ lucid/universe Packages

So your comment of "impossible" is so fantastic as to make you look somewhat foolish.

You say there are errors but failed to provide them for us to review. Can youplease give us the output of your compile attempt and we may be able to advise

I find the error source: I must copy the whole souce folder with -a. It doesn't work with -r or -dr.
