Re: [xml] Trying to make libxml2 for arm (TI DaVinci)

I guess when you run sudo path to XXX-ranlib is lost.

Lets try to install with following as non-root user
$ make install DESTDIR=/tmp/XXXX

If above install work then you should setup sudo path . I could not help
more as I don't use sudo.


Hmmm...  You got me thinking.  "sudo printenv" indeed points out that my
path is lost.  I made a little script to do that path setting plus make
install, then ran that with sudo.  This ran through successfully.

NOW, I find two things.

1) Seaching /usr/lib I discover files and
with file date 12/15/2009.  This means a version of the lib has been on my
Ubuntu from the beginning, and I didn't know it.  Perhaps I should have
looked harder (at all) and used the existing one.  But, have I now
clobbered the includes to correspond with it?  Dunno.  ((Nope, I don't
find /user/include/... for libxml..., which would be further parallel with
below that inserts "local" in its directory tree.))

2) For my today install of version 2.7.8, I find in
/usr/local/include/libxml2/libxml a bunch of .h files.  Good.  In
/usr/local/lib (not /usr/lib) I find and (file link), which I assume are the library files for (compiler) linking
with my application.  Is this true?  I didn't find these linker files
until just now while writing this email.  I have to go into out-of-office
meetings all day soon, so I can't experiment further right now.  I think I
ought to try adding include directory /usr/local/include/libxml2/libxml
and link to  DOES THAT SOUND CORRECT?  (All this with Feb 24
2011 dates)

Again, do you think I've succeeded and should use item (2) above?

Thanks very much
