Hi everybody
Since last week, when 5.39 version was casted, I've tried to install it
with no success. I applied as root:
./configure --enable-clisp
make
make install

I see that 'configure' has no errors. But in the 'make' and 'make install'
steps throws me this messages:

makeinfo --split-size=1000000 ../../doc/info/maxima.texi
../../doc/info//errormessages.texi:296: `Warning messages' no contiene
referencia a `Up', quizás debido a un seccionado incorrecto del documento.
../../doc/info//errormessages.texi:162: El campo `Prev' del nodo `Operators
of arguments must all be the same' no apunta a sitio alguno.
../../doc/info//errormessages.texi:152: Este nodo (Only symbols can be
bound) contiene una referencia inválida en el campo `Next'.
../../doc/info//errormessages.texi:152: El próximo campo del nodo `Only
symbols can be bound' no apunta a lugar alguno, quizás debido a un
seccionado incorrecto del documento.

una referencia inválida en el campo `Prev'.
../../doc/info//errormessages.texi:8: `Error messages' no contiene

Does anyone know how to fix this issue?
Thanks

My first guess is that you are using a different version of Makeinfo. I
have makeinfo 5.2 and it works OK. What does makeinfo --version say?

The last few times it was Wolfgang's version of TeXinfo did error out.

On the page https://sourceforge.net/p/maxima/code/ci/master/tree/ there
is a button to download a current snapshot of maxima's source code. If
you extract it and do a

./bootstrap

in its upmost folder it should behave exactly like the release tarball
with the difference that the problem should be resolved. If it is I'll
mark the fix for the bug you have found to be included in the next minor
release.

Kind regards,

Gunter.

Gunter,
I followed the directions you gave me and when I tried to "bootstrap", I
received this message:

# ./bootstrap
+ aclocal
./bootstrap: línea 3: aclocal: no se encontró la orden
+ automake --add-missing --copy
./bootstrap: línea 4: automake: no se encontró la orden
+ autoconf
./bootstrap: línea 5: autoconf: no se encontró la orden

which means that the order was not found.
Am I missing something?
Thanks
Antonio

It appears that you do not have GNU autotools installed. Exactly which
packages you need might depend on what variety of Linux you are using.
It appears that on my system (Ubuntu 14.04) there are two packages,
autoconf and automake. On Ubuntu or Debian maybe

sudo apt-get install automake autoconf

is enough.

I installed the automake and autoconf and applied once more
./bootstrap
and had no problem.

But, I opened wxmaxima and noticed that 5.38.1 version is still installed.
Did I miss something?

Thank you for your reply
Antonio

WxMaxima has a configuration parameter which tells the path to execute
Maxima -- my guess is that you need to point that path at the new
version of Maxima. Since you installed Maxima via make install, it is
probably /usr/local/bin/maxima while Maxima installed from a package
is probably /usr/bin/maxima.

I have 4.13 version, which is the latest version of opensuse according to
the repos.
Well, I don't know what to do at this point. My advice is to try
to get a 5.something version of makeinfo. But if you want to
try to modify the Texinfo files so that they can be handled by
makeinfo 4.something, I will apply any patches you create.

Of course, anyone else (any user or developer) is also free
to modify the Texinfo's to make them work with makeinfo 4.
It is probably not very difficult. Unfortunately I don't have
time to devote to this right now.

best,
Robert Dodier

I believe there is also (apart from the fix in master [c41232]) a
sectioning error here (doc/info/errormessages.texi:152). The following
patch, on top fof master, helps getting things building again for me
(and on all versions of openSUSE, for which I am the maintainer of
maxima). I also attach the patch, in case it gets mangled by email
clients, etc.
