Thank you Tim.

As mentioned in the Release Notes, it's quite likely that it will fail to compile Python and/or PyGObject.

If anyone can tell me how to do it, I'd be grateful - I've probably spent over 10 hours trying to get the thing to work.

Python needs _ctypes to compile - to do that it needs libffi. libffi is built by the script but I don't see how to link with it.

Without ctypes, pip and meson don't work.

Hi Sabine,

Paul provides a build script
https://www2.mrc-lmb.cam.ac.uk/personal/pemsley/coot/web/build-install-coot-from-scratch.html
which takes care of the additional packages required to compile coot.
That's much easier than running configure from the coot source tar and
trying to fix the missing parts yourself.

Best,
Tim

Hi everyone,

I am using Centos Stream and tried to install coot-1, but failed due
to an error: "ssm not found" (see below)
I resolved the missing mmdb2 by installing the package from source,
but I cannot find libSSM anywhere. Can someone point me in the right
direction?

checking for LIBPNG... yes
checking for CAIRO... yes
checking for SQLite3... no
checking for mmdb2... yes
checking for ssm... no
configure: error: in `/home/sabine/progs/coot-1':
configure: error: ssm not found

Thanks a lot!

Sabine
