Trying to compile openzwave-control-panel. But getting the following error:

user@ubuntu1004desktop:~/openzwave-control-panel$ make
g++ -o ozwcp -g ozwcp.o webserver.o zwavelib.o   ../libmicrohttpd/src/daemon/.libs/libmicrohttpd.a -pthread -framework IOKit -framework CoreFoundation
g++: ../libmicrohttpd/src/daemon/.libs/libmicrohttpd.a: No such file or directory
g++: IOKit: No such file or directory
g++: CoreFoundation: No such file or directory
make: *** [ozwcp] Error 1

(yes, I have libmicrohttpd, but there is no .libs folder)

Also, I can not configure the sources:

user@ubuntu1004desktop:~/libmicrohttpd$ ./configure
bash: ./configure: No such file or directory

How to compile that?

you cold side step the problem with building ozwcp by using the zwaver chrome extension instead – user304563 Jul 11 '14 at 12:14

For the libmicrohttpd folder you need to run autoreconf -fi

You'll need to have autoconf, libtool and texinfo installed as well before running autoreconf -fi.

This should generate a correct configure file

However "IOKit" and "CoreFoundation" are specific MacOS libraries. My suggestion is to look at the Makefile - you will probably find that you have to comment out specific MacOS lines and uncomment out lines to allow you to compile for Linux.

Thanks! Actually I had to find another version of libmicrohttpd, since the original version didn't contain files needed (probably, usage of libtool and texinfo would help to generate them). – LA_ Sep 5 '11 at 15:39
