Here's the deal:
I'm trying to install Shairport for an Airplay server. I'm running the latest version of Lubuntu. I'm following these directions (meant for a RaspberryPi, but I don't see any reason why they shouldn't work for any linux system). After I download and compile Shairport, I'm supposed to run make (to build Shairport). However, it keeps returning this error:

make: *** [hairtunes] Error 1

I installed make, uninstalled it, reinstalled it, recompiled Shairport, and nothing works. Any ideas?

When I run make, here's the full text (pasting the text in here wasn't formatting right, so here's a screenshot): http://i.imgur.com/WKUaXG9.png

Thanks for any help!

The tutorial in your link said:

Shairport has several prerequisites that need to be installed first. This is a single instruction to install them all:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo apt-get install git libao-dev libssl-dev libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl libio-socket-inet6-perl libwww-perl avahi-utils libmodule-build-perl

But the shairport INSTALL.md file says:

Debian/Ubuntu:

sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl libao-dev libio-socket-inet6-perl libwww-perl avahi-utils pkg-config

So, you can try to install all dependencies for shairport with:

  • sudo apt-get install build-essential libssl-dev libcrypt-openssl-rsa-perl libao-dev libio-socket-inet6-perl libwww-perl avahi-utils pkg-config

Then you can compile shairport.

  • I think that helped. Now I'm getting an error that says make: *** [shairport] Error 1. So now shairport is in the brackets instead of hairtunes. Any suggestions? Edit: I ignored the error and just started shairport. It works. Thanks! – Zach Aug 20 '13 at 1:29
