Cmake installation error -- Mac OSX 10.6.8


#1

I am trying to get couchbase up and running for python on Mac OSX 10.6.8. I’m following the instructions here:

http://docs.couchbase.com/couchbase-sdk-python-1.2/index.html#getting-started

But I’m stuck on step 2:

Download and install the C library.

According to the instructions for installing the C SDK here:

http://docs.couchbase.com/developer/c-2.4/download-install.html

I did this:

~$ brew update
....
....
~$ brew install libcouchbase 

But I’m getting an error when homebrew tries to install the dependency cmake:

Anyone have any ideas on what I should do? Thanks.

Looking at this line:

/tmp/cmake-HcEaFf/cmake-3.1.0/Source/CursesDialog/form/form.h:46:31: error: ncurses/ncurses.h: No such file or directory

It would seem you need to install ncurses. You are running a fairly old platform (I’m guessing homebrew no longer supports snow leopard), and in later versions of OSX, ncurses is provided by the vendor as /usr/include/ncurses, etc.


#3

Hi,

Thanks for taking a look. I do have ncurses.h in /usr/include:

/usr/include$ ls -al ncurses.h
lrwxr-xr-x  1 root  wheel  8 Aug 11  2012 ncurses.h -> curses.h

It’s a symbolic link to the curses.h file in the same directory. But based on the error message you posted:

error: ncurses/ncurses.h: No such file or directory

…it looks like homebrew is expecting ncurses.h to be inside an ncurses directory. So I tried this:

/usr/include$ sudo mkdir ncurses
Passsword:
/usr/include$ cd ncurses
/usr/include/ncurses$ sudo cp -a  ../ncurses.h  .    (-a => creates a new link rather than copying the file that the link points to)

Then I went ahead and installed libcouchbase:
