[sugar] Errors installing Sugar
Wed Feb 20 15:36:16 EST 2008
Summary: <http://sugar.abisource.com/> is unavailable, and so
./sugar-jhbuild build fails.
I'm trying to install Sugar on Ubuntu 7.10. The instructions on ...
... tell me to do this:
ERRORS 1 AND 2
I get as far as ./sugar-jhbuild update, which starts out fine. Then I run
into a couple of seemingly non-fatal errors:
*** error during stage checkout of hippo-canvas:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory *** [8/51]
*** error during stage checkout of matchbox-window-manager:
[Errno 2] No such file or directory *** [20/51]
Both times, I can choose:
 ignore error and continue to done.
However, the notes at <http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Hacking_Sugar#Sugar>
suggest that both Hippo-Canvas and Matchbox Window Manager are essential
components of Sugar.
Then I run into a different issue: http://sugar.abisource.com/ seems to be
down. The update process times out 20 times before it gives up.
#### Error running wget http://sugar.abisource.com/src/libabiword-
2.6.0.svn20071113.tar.gz -O /home/james/OLPC/Sugar/sugar-
jhbuild/source/libabiword-2.6.0.svn20071113.tar.gz *** [23/51]
This leads to other insurmountable errors:
*** error during stage unpack of libabiword:
could not unpack tarball *** [23/51]
*** error during stage patch of libabiword:
could not apply patch *** [23/51]
And so on.
ERROR 3 REVISITED
If I follow the instructions at...
..., hippo-canvas and matchbox-window-manager apparently get included in the
build correctly, but the build still chokes at step [23/51] because
<http://sugar.abisource.com/> is unavailable.
1) Is there an extra step that needs to be executed before the
instructions at <http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sugar_with_sugar-jhbuild>
will run correctly?
2) Who should I alert about the unavailability of
Thanks in advance,
