aMule install on CentOS 6 (RHEL 6)
« on: July 17, 2011, 09:33:12 PM »

Hi!

I just tried compiling and installing aMule SVN r10589 on my CentOS 6.0 box. It compiles fine (after installing all dependencies from repoforge) but when installing, I just found two conflicting files: there already exists /usr/bin/cas and /usr/share/man/man1/cas.1.gz which belong to another package (https://fedorahosted.org/cas/). Since I create my own RPMs, which install to /usr tree, this is annoying. Is there any chance that the cas utility could be renamed to something else? cas-amule would be a suggestion to avoid future name clashes.

Thanks for any help :)

How about configuring without cas and using wxcas instead?
(Sorry if that's a dumb idea - I don't use either one.)

Hi!

@Stu
It's not a dumb idea, it's just that wxCas and cas both do the same but under different circumstances, and my need is for cas (console only, runnable via cron) and not wxCas (graphical, always running).

@GonoszTopi
Thaks for your suggestion, it seems to be exactly what I need. I had seen the option before in configure, but never really understood what it was for. I guess you learn something new every day.

Regards.
