(Linux Ubuntu 20.04)
After downloading and while performing the instructions presented at the swipl Linux installation page:
cmake -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local ..
The process stops at 95% with the following error:
make: *no rule to make the target “man/archive” needed to “man/lib/prologpack.tex”. Stop.
make: *** [CMakeFiles/Makefile2:2599: man/CMakeFiles/core.doc.html.dir/all] Erro 2
Am I missing something?
Thanks in advance for your help.
I don’t build from source for Linux but do use a Linux version from time to time.
Unless you need to build from source are you aware that there is a PPA available?
Install SWI-Prolog development version on Ubuntu using PPA
Most likely the dependencies See Prerequisites for Debian based systems (Ubuntu, Mint, ...). If you just want the core system for some reason (typically only if you want a minimal embedded system), disable the packages and documentation.
I’ve had this happen to me from time to time on Ubuntu 18.04. I just added “mkdir -p …/man/archive” to my build steps. At one point @jan Jan noticed this and told me it wasn’t needed. YMMV
