Hi, I'm trying to install PandaSeq as a non-administrator on a Red Hat server but the compiler is returning the following error:

...
checking ltdl.h usability... no
checking ltdl.h presence... no
checking for ltdl.h... no
configure: error: *** ltld required, install libtool library.

So I verified all the dependencies are installed:

whereis libtool : /usr/bin/libtool /usr/share/libtool
whereis zlib : /usr/include/zlib.h /usr/local/zlib /usr/share/man/man3/zlib.3.gz
whereis libbz2 : /usr/lib64/libbz2.so
whereis bzip2 : /usr/bin/bzip2 /usr/local/bzip2 /usr/share/man/man1/bzip2.1.gz

The compiler commands I'm using are:

git clone http://github.com/neufeld/pandaseq.git/
cd pandaseq
./autogen.sh
./configure --prefix=/my/dir

Any ideas how to make the compiler see libtools ?

Thanks!

The file it's looking for is ltdl.h. A web search for "red hat ltdl.h" shows that this will be supplied by the libtool-ltdl-devel package, which is a separate subsidiary of the libtool package that provides the /usr/bin/libtool that is present.

It's possible to install this development libtool package from source locally as a non-administrator, but the practical and easy thing to do will be to get an administrator to install the required libtool-ltdl-devel package.

Thanks for the quick reply. In the end, our server administrator installed the following packages which resulted in a successful installation of PANDAseq:

libtool-ltdl-2.2.6-15.5.el6.x86_64 libtool-2.2.6-15.5.el6.x86_64 libtool-ltdl-devel-2.2.6-15.5.el6.x86_64

The PANDA is happy now :)
