Try the following in the calibre directory:

rm -rf build/* src/calibre/plugins/* && python setup.py build_ext

If that completes successfully, then try the build and install steps

The command does not complete successfully and since you did not ask for the possible error output from the command you just asked me to use I won't post the error messages in this post. Actually, I should state that I'm using slackware-current 64 bit linux which is not a stable release so it could possibly be the fault of the linux distro I'm using and not the fault of calibre I suppose (or it could be my fault by possibly not compiling the dependency packages with the right configuration options) . Only reason why I'm using the -current tag release is because slackware 12.2 does not have 64 bit support only the next release of slackware will support 64 bit processors. Although not a stable official release so far slackware-current has given no other problems besides this (seems to be pretty stable to me so far overall).

Also, I edited my previous post several times so I may have added something you missed the first time you read it e.g. I'm using slackware-current. So you might perhaps want to reread my previous post as well.

Basically your distro does not include podofo compiled as a shared library, so calibre is failing to compile the podofo extension. You can prevent calibre from trying to compile podofo (which will disable various PDf functionality) by seting the PODOFO_INC_DIR environment variable to /dev/null

Alright thanks for the information. At least now that I know what is the problem for certain I can try various different strategies for fixing the problem until I get it to work. So I probably won't be needing your help anymore in this thread unless a totally unrelated issue pops up after I fix this issue. Thanks again.

Question any ideas on this error ?

Hello again Kovid :

I fixed the podofo problem but now I ran into another problem :

Any ideas ? I guess exit status 1 indicates a mismatch or something ? I'm not an expert at reading compilation and configuration error messages yet unfortunately for me.


P.S.

Also I don't know how likely it is someone else will run into the podofo problem I did but I fixed it by configuring it with this configuration command before compilation :

cmake -G "Unix Makefiles" -DCMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX="$HOME/podofo" -DWANT_LIB64:BOOL=TRUE -DPODOFO_BUILD_SHARED:BOOL=TRUE -DPODOFO_BUILD_STATIC:BOOL=TRUE

I'm pretty sure I installed all the dependency packages for calibre all with => version numbers. Anyway :

SIP version : 4.8.1-snapshot-20090611

PyQt-4.4.4

Maybe it was stupid of me to install a snapshot instead of a regular version release since I'm not a developer ? Actually I would have installed a stable version normally but the setuptools package script easy_install pointed to a mirror with the snapshot instead of a stable release of SIP so it might not be my own stupidity or at least not entirely my own stupidity if that is actually the problem here.
