I have a very basic question. Having little experience in Command Line, I am stumped on practically the first step. I am downloading the following file from the Clustal Omega website: Source code .tar.gz (1.2.1)
However, to run this in terminal, I have to install argtable2. So I went and downloaded the following from the website: argtable2-13.tar.gz
I placed both these into a single folder, and in terminal setup the directory to the argtable2 folder via
A ton of checks are done which ends like this:
configure: creating ./config.status config.status: creating Makefile config.status: creating example/Makefile config.status: creating src/Makefile config.status: creating doc/Makefile config.status: creating doc/argtable2.3 config.status: creating doc/argtable2.html config.status: creating tests/Makefile config.status: creating argtable2.pc config.status: creating argtable2-uninstalled.pc config.status: creating src/config.h config.status: src/config.h is unchanged config.status: executing depfiles commands config.status: executing libtool commands nat-oitwireless-inside-vapornet100-c-20170:argtable2-13 Plosslab$ make Making all in src /Library/Developer/CommandLineTools/usr/bin/make all-am Making all in tests make: Nothing to be done for `all'. Making all in doc cp argtable2.3 argtable.3 make: Nothing to be done for `all-am'.
I then set the directory to the clustalO folder and configure and it ends like this:
Could not find argtable2.h. Try $ ./configure CFLAGS='-Iyour-argtable2-include-path
The INSTALL text file says I should type this line:
./configure CFLAGS='-I/opt/local/include' LDFLAGS='-L/opt/local/lib'
I then get the following error:
configure: error: Could not find argtable2.h. Try $ ./configure CFLAGS='-Iyour-argtable2-include-path
I try to follow the recommendation as such:
And finally I get the following error, and I am stumped:
checking whether the C compiler works... no configure: error: in `/Users/lab/argtable2-13': configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
Anyone have any ideas as to why this isn't working? Did I download the wrong version of argtable? Am I typing in the wrong commands? Any advice would be thoroughly appreciated.
