Installation problems on Ubuntu 12.04


Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I was trying to install systemc-2.3.0 (and 2.2.0 for cross checking) on Ubuntu 12.04.

For the best of my knowledge I followed the instructions given in the INSTALL file of the systemc package.

However, when doing "make" I am getting the following error:

libtool: compile: g++ -DSC_INCLUDE_FX -I. -I../../../../src/sysc/qt -I../../../../src -Wall -m32 -O3 -pthread -c ../../../../src/sysc/qt/qt.c -o libqt_la-qt.o >/dev/null 2>&1

make[3]: execvp: ../../../../src/sysc/qt/config: Permission denied

make[3]: *** [configuration] Error 127

make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/icke/systemc-2.3.0/objdir/src/sysc/qt'

make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/icke/systemc-2.3.0/objdir/src/sysc'

make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/icke/systemc-2.3.0/objdir/src'

make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I also tried to run "sudo make" as "permission denied" might imply, but it didnt change it.

As this happens with both systemc packages (2.2. and 2.3.) this might also be something Ubuntu related, but I can't find any helpful information online.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance

It's a local problem, not related to SystemC itself. Make sure, that

  • you have 'executable' permissions on this file (chmod a+x ...src/sysc/qt/config)
  • the partition, you're building on, is not mounted with the "noexec" flag

Greetings from Oldenburg,

Hi Philipp,

sorry for the late reply and thanks for the advice.

I was busy with other things and could not spend much time on it.

For now I have it running under cygwin - which is only a temporal solution.

As soon I got back to the installation issue I will post my solution here.
