OK, got it to work. In principle there is nothing wrong with artha itself but now the compilation of WordNet requires to be done using

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man CFLAGS=-fPIC CXXFLAGS=-fPIC

instead of just

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man

Cheers.

@a36233 Did you check that in principle there is nothing wrong with artha itself but now the compilation of WordNet requires to be done using

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man CFLAGS=-fPIC CXXFLAGS=-fPIC

instead of just

./configure --prefix=/usr --mandir=/usr/share/man

Let me know whether this solves the issue.

If you look at the dependencies, you'll that wordnet is included. It has been included since looooooong time ago.

I cannot get it to compile either which is very strange. But this package has worked since long time ago.

I'm on a trip at the moment and I cannot promise I will look into this issue for about two weeks. If you could help with anything it would be great.

Cheers,

I took over the maintenance long time ago and I do not recall doing any active choice about it... but come to think of it you are right to question whether it should go under such category.

How about "office" category?

awim commented on 2015-04-27 16:11

why is the category 'editors'?

donpicoro commented on 2012-11-25 17:08
