I followed the installation from .tar.gz source packages. Here I will describe the differences between what I did and the explanation from the .tar.gz installation page.
1. Install development tools
2. Install packaged requeriments
I installed the following package instead of
sudo apt-get install libboost-dev(due to problems with libboost-filesystem)
sudo apt-get install libboost1.40-all-dev
3. Install non-packaged requeriments
4. Install Freeling
Previous installations OK
Installation of Freeling
sudo ./configuresudo make reported a bug when using libtool. I solved them by following the explanation of here. Basically, with the addition of these lines in file Freeling/libtool
# An echo program that does not interpret backslashes.Problems with freeling/data/Makefile.am. I solved them by following the explanation of here.
+#well this $ECHO is referred to as $echo everywhere in this file. So:
# Used to examine libraries when file_magic_cmd begins with "file".
sudo make install
Basically, with the Modification of all lines like
asdata_DATA = es/*to
asdata_DATA = es/*.*These lines refer to asdata, cadata, esdata, gadata, commondata, itdata... (one for each lang).
sudo make installNow all was ok!
In the directory Freeling/src/main/simple_examples/
g++ -o sample sample.cc -ldb_cxx -lmorfo -lfries -lomlet -lpcreI needed to add the library lboost_filesystem
g++ -o sample sample.cc -ldb_cxx -lmorfo -lfries -lomlet -lpcre
