recipe for target 'release' failed

Post by Leonard »

Hi Marc

I'm trying to install geopsy (last release) in a debian stretch machine. I got this error every time i tried the make step.

Makefile.Release:3872: recipe for target 'release/MiniSeedReader.o' failed
make[2]: *** [release/MiniSeedReader.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/xxxxx/Downloads/geopsypack-55items-src-2.10.1/GeopsyCore'
Makefile:34: recipe for target 'release' failed
make[1]: *** [release] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/xxxxx/Downloads/geopsypack-55items-src-2.10.1/GeopsyCore'
Makefile:763: recipe for target 'sub-GeopsyCore-make_default-ordered' failed
make: *** [sub-GeopsyCore-make_default-ordered] Error 2

I was following the same steps as when i installed geopsy in my debian jessie machine (i didn't have problems with it)

Maybe this error is related with new version of qt4 package in the distribution?

QMake version 2.01a
Using Qt version 4.8.7 in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu

Thanks for your help and the support of this awesome software.

Hi Leonard,

Are you trying to install 2.9.1 or the devel release?
For 2.9.1, Qt 4 is mandatory (4.8.7 is fine). For the devel, Qt 5 is mandatory (>5.6)
To fix the error, can send a complete log? With the few lines you sent I cannot suggest a solution.
