Okay, so I figured I'd give compiling the latest version of qjackctl a go. I'm on OS X 10.4.10 with Quicktime 7.2.0 installed. I extracted the .tar file to a folder entitled "qjackctl-0.3.1a" in my Applications folder.
So, I then opened Terminal, changed directories to the folder I created and then ran the command ".configure". On the qjackctl page, these are the instructions:
The installation procedure follows the standard for source distributions. In the extracted source directory, just do:
and optionally as root:
Everytime I tried running that command, I would get back an error message stating that "configure: error: invalid variable name: [--prefix" .
Now, please keep in mind that I'm a total noob to using Terminal, so I figure that I'd just take of the "[--prefix=prefix]" from the first line of the command. So, I did that and Terminal appeared to be compiling the program, but then the final line of the ensuing process stated that I didn't have Qt 4.1 or greater. Here's the exact verbiage:
checking for gcc... gcc
checking for C compiler default output... a.out
checking whether the C compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking how to run the C preprocessor... gcc -E
checking for g++... g++
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking how to run the C++ preprocessor... g++ -E
checking for egrep... grep -E
checking whether gcc needs -traditional... no
checking for Qt library version >= 4.1... no; Qt 4.1 or greater is required
After that, I just get a fresh prompt line. So, I figured, maybe everything worked out fine. So, I typed "make", then got this:
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
Can someone tell me where I'm going wrong? Thanks.
