Subject Re: Rampart/C Fails to build on Ubuntu 9.04
Date Fri, 28 Aug 2009 18:51:19 GMT
Thank you Sanjaya!  It's really good to see that someone else is able to
reproduce this.  Since I couldn't find this issue in Rampart/C's JIRA
archive, I was thinking I might be doing something wrong. After looking into
the problem more deeply, I'm seeing this issue occur on other platforms; not
just Ubuntu 9.04.  So, it's definitely something that needs to be looked
at.  I've now reported this as an issue:

By running ./ first, I was able to fix this issue.  I was able to
run the sec_echo sample and it worked!  However, I should point out that I
am getting *new* errors that seem trivial.  See for details.  But I'm just happy I
have the thing working!

P.S. Since I've joined this mailing list just yesterday, I'd like to make my
intentions clear to everyone.  I'd like to point out that I've tried very
hard to make sure I'm following the official instructions given at and I'm pretty
sure I'm not skipping any steps; but it just doesn't work when I follow the
instructions.  This is a sign that the Rampart/C team might want to do some
cleanup on their documentation; both on-site and in the README and INSTALL
files.  If possible, I would be interested in joining the Rampart/C
development team as a documentation janitor.  I've seen a lot of typos that
could easily be fixed.

P.P.S. Personally, I plan to use Rampart/C for a long time to come, and I am
hoping to be able to install it to several platforms.  So, I have a strong
desire to help make sure issues like this can be fixed, or worked around.  I
am also a C developer, so I might be able to contribute more than just
documentation.  My personal website is located at, where
more information about my skills and interests may be found.
