I am trying to install the following plugin of minisat.


But when I go in the directory using terminal and do make install. It gives an error

install -d /usr/local/bin install -m 755 build/dynamic/bin/minumerate /usr/local/bin install: cannot create regular file ‘/usr/local/bin/minumerate’: Permission denied make: *** [install-bin] Error 1

I tried to do what's given in README, but I can't seem to find the address $MINC and $MLIB.

I installed minisat using sudo apt-get minisat

How to make this source?



Firstly, the errors you're seeing with make install are because it's trying to install to a root-owned location. You'd need to do sudo make install to install the program.

Secondly, if you have the apt-get installed version of minisat, you'll need to start by removing it, and then running the sudo make install to actually install the software after its built.

  • I did sudo make install and echoed install -d /usr/local/bin install -m 755 build/dynamic/bin/minumerate /usr/local/bin I am not sure what you meant by removing minisat. As these examples will use the minisat libraries. – Potato_head Nov 3 '14 at 14:51
