amule compilation on fedora 23

I'm trying to compile amule on fedora 23 but I have a error.

I installed dependencies

sudo dnf install git redhat-rpm-config gcc gcc-c++ make bison flex binutils-devel gettext-devel GeoIP-devel wxGTK-devel zlib-devel libpng-devel gd-devel libupnp-devel cryptopp-devel

I downloaded the source code

git clone

then I compiled:

./ && ./configure --enable-ccache --enable-amule-daemon && make

More about my problem here:

Any idea?

Why don't you install it from RPMFusion?

it is available on rpmfusion

but if you want compile it , you may use mock :

git clone
cd amule
spectool -g amule.spec
rpmbuild -bs amule.spec --define "_sourcedir ." --define '_srcrpmdir .' && mock -r fedora-23-x86_64 --no-clean --rebuild ./amule-2.3.1-8.fc23.src.rpm

in reply I update the spec :;O=D

spectool -g amule.spec #will download the source
rpmbuild -bs amule.spec  --define "_sourcedir ." --define '_srcrpmdir .'  && mock -r fedora-24-x86_64 --no-clean --rebuild ./amule-2.3.2-0.1.20160506git88aa023.fc23.src.rpm

on begin of new amule.spec you got

#globals for
%global commit1 88aa0231f0c06023b32cba0d5a3871d418bb0f1f
%global shortcommit1 %(c=%{commit1}; echo ${c:0:7})

just change to commit that you want. don't understand what you want and in RPMFusion is not possible do f24 branch for amule , if was possible we had done for all packages .

for spec you may deduce how compile in shell and it is easy :

BuildRequires:  wxGTK-devel >= 0:2.8.7, desktop-file-utils, expat-devel
BuildRequires:  gd-devel >= 2.0.0, libpng-devel
BuildRequires:  gettext-devel, flex, bison
BuildRequires:  readline-devel, cryptopp-devel, libupnp-devel
BuildRequires:  GeoIP-devel
BuildRequires:  libtool


dnf install  wxGTK-devel  gettext-devel desktop-file-utils expat-devel flex bison readline-devel cryptopp-devel libupnp-devel libtool etc etc

from section %build

The commit you basing your build is a 2.4.0 and not a 2.3.2. I think the goal is to have it to work with wxWidgets-3.0.

just for me to understand how it works in rpm fusion: why don't you create a branch on github for the next f24 amule.spec file?

thibaut75011 gravatar imagethibaut75011 ( 2016-05-07 17:51:08 -0500 )edit

just need switch the commit , what commit do you want ?

Thanks, it's what I was looking for. By the way the next release is going to be 2.3.2

Thank you. It works with the rpmfusion amule compilation script.

But I would like to work with the last version of the source as we are close to a release. It use to work 6 month ago. That's why I'm surprise.

I'm trying to write a javascript client for amule that's why i need to be able to compile, I need to write debug info in the code to understand what's going on exactly.
