Hey everyone.

I need to install opkg in my ubuntu 10.04 server. I have tried installing it by doing this

git clone git://git.yoctoproject.org/opkg

When I tried doing this

./configure

it gave me a message saying that I should install autoconfig and automake. I installed the packages but it didn't work.
I need opkg to work with packages that are for a Khepera III robot.
Can anyone please help me

    Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
    installed software in a non-standard prefix.

    Alternatively, you may set the environment variables CURL_CFLAGS
    and CURL_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Looks like you need to install libcurl-dev. Offhand, I'm not sure of the exact package names on Ubuntu. Your best bet would be to take a look for them in the software centre or to try opening a terminal and run the command apt-cache search --names-only libcurl | grep -i dev - That should list some packages. Once you've identified the appropriate package for libcurl-dev, use sudo apt-get install xxxxx where xxxxx is the name of the package you need to download/install.

After installing libcurl-dev and running configure again, you might get similar errors about other missing libraries/dependencies. If this happens you'll need to download/install more dependencies as per the above instructions.

Once you have all of the dependencies installed the configure step will eventually succeed and you should be able to move-on to actually compile/build the program!
