FreeBSD-12 installation

Post by donwilde1 »

I have both a Ubuntu-18.04.4 box and a FreeBSD12-STABLE laptop. The Ubuntu install is going well, but my FreeBSD install is choking on 'scons -h'.

All the listed dependencies are installed, but it is choking (evidently) because although I have many png and libpng shared object and static libraries installed, libpng16 isn't one of them.

Hmmm... that's not it. libpng16.so IS there, as well as libpng16.a.

png_access_version_number() is not, though.

FreeBSD lists this function as present ( https://www.freebsd.org/cgi/man.cgi?que ... ormat=html ) so my first guess would be that header files are not in a directory the SConscript expects it to be in. You can look in the file "config.log". This is the file SCons creates with the result of system dependency checks. This could help figure out what SCons thinks it is looking for.
