View Full Version : installing exiv2

Jan 15, 2007, 12:25 PM
Hi, and thanks to all who helped me in my Qt thread. I finally got it compiled and installed! The next step in getting the app I want to run is configuring exiv2.

I seem to be having g++ issues...
Installed darwinports 1.2, (FWIW, when doing the sudo self update, I got a command not found error) but when trying to install exiv2, I got this
will-kamins-computer:~/desktop/exiv2-0.12 williekamin$ ./configure
checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C++ compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
will-kamins-computer:~/desktop/exiv2-0.12 williekamin$

I also tried installing the automatic way as shown on the exiv2 darwinports site, but that didn't work. I wonder if that may have to do with the selfupdate thing. If it helps, I'm attaching the config.log file from trying to configure exiv2 from source.

Anyway, what should/can I do?

UPDATE: got it!:D
I'm learning more about programming that a book could probably teach. This is actually really fun! Now to get this app (qtpfsgui) compiled, give it a sexy aqua interface (I think I'll have to do a cocoa port for that), then beat Photomatix Pro into the ground (just kidding, and I'd have to figure out legal stuff with all the people who coded stuff that's going into this).
