Short version: success after installing package libxt-dev.

I pursued the fact that my compilation was failing for lack of
"IntrinsicP.h" amongst other files.   Googling within debian.org
revealed that this file belongs to:


which was not installed on my system.  I removed the files I had copied
(as mentioned in a previous message) and the modification to
Mesa/src/glw/GLwDrawA.c.  I used Synaptic to install libxt-dev, which
resulted in:

  libice6     upgraded to 4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2
  libsm6      upgraded to 4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2
  libxt6      upgraded to 4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2
  libice-dev              4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2 installed
  libsm-dev               4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2 installed
  libxt-dev               4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2 installed

After clearing my build directory, I gave:

  ../configure --with-wx

(I notice that http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/Autoconf.html says to use
"make all", while http://www.w3.org/Amaya/User/AmayaWX.html says to use
just "make".)

The compilation completed happily in about 25 minutes on this 2.6GHz P4

Binaries, including "amaya" (28104139 bytes) were in:


I removed the binary package I installed the other day.

  dpkg -P amaya

which removed the dirctory /usr/lib/Amaya-9.52/.  Before doing this I
accidentally used -d and got some dependencies:

  libatk1.0-0      >= 1.7.2
  libc6            >= 2.3.2.ds1-21
  libexpat1        >= 1.95.8
  libfreetype6     >= 2.1.5-1
  libgcc1          >= 1:3.4.1-3
  libglib2.0-0     >= 2.6.0
  libgtk2.0-0      >= 2.6.0
  libpango1.0-0    >= 1.8.1
  libstdc++5       >= 1:3.3.4-1
  libx11-6 | xlibs >> 4.1.0
  libxext6 | xlibs >> 4.1.0
  zlib1g           >= 1:1.2.1

I tested the new binary:


It ran and I was able to edit a file!

Then I installed the newly compiled Amaya:

  make install

This installed things in /usr/local/Amaya-9.52/, which is different from
/usr/lib/Amaya-9.52/ which was where the binary packaged installed.

I was able to run the newly installed Amaya with:


I suggest that the list of packages required for compilation on Debian
Stable at:


which is currently:


be supplemented by this list, alphabetically sorted, with version
numbers, which seemed to be necessary for me.  The << xxx indicates that
this package was required by package xxx.

 libfreetype6-dev   2.1.7-6

 libgtk2.0-dev      2.6-4.3.1

 libice6            4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << libxt-dev
 libice-dev         4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << libxt-dev

 libsm6             4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << libxt-dev
 libsm-dev          4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << libxt-dev

 libxt6             4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << libxt-dev
 libxt-dev          4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2

 xlibmesa-gl        4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2
 xlibmesa-glu       4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << xlibmesa-dev
 xlibmesa-glu-dev   4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2  << xlibmesa-dev

 xlibmesa-dev       4.3.0.dfsg.1-14sarge2

There may be some other packages which I previously installed above
whatever might be considered a standard Debian 3.1 Stable installation,
but as far as I know, this is what I needed to compile the current
snapshot of Amaya.
