Weird error during "make install"

Weird error during "make install"
CÚsar Augusto Vecchio Toloy 2010/03/20 00:08
Hello everyone. I'm trying to install OCC by compiling it in PCLinuxOS 2007. I have been able to use the configure command and then the "make" command, but when I use the "make install" everything goes fine for along while until in one moment it appears the following:

----------------------------------------------------------------------

make: *** [install-recursive] Error 1

And the installation ends completely. I did check the help of "cp" as suggested there, and it says a destination directory should be specified, which in those lines being shown doesn't seem to be defined any.
I have enabled the installation of WOK, Wrapper and Draw. At the beggining the "make" process would fail until I used an older TCL/Tk as one user suggested in this same forum. Also, I'm installing OCC in my home directory (/home/cavt/opencascade) but I doubt that couldbe the reason.
I would be very grateful is any of you is able to provide me the necessary help to keep the installation. As additional information, I'm running an AMD Sempron LE-1100 procesor and 2GB or RAM, NVidia built-in video card. I also use Windows XP in the same machine and softwares like CATIA and SolidWorks work without problems (no, I'm not going to install OCC in WIndows, I want it for Linux, as it is the only way to get a decent 3D CAD system for Linux... I plan to go for FreeCAD and/or HeeksCAD).
Thanks in advance,

CÚsar

I'm getting this same error. Did you ever figure it out?

No, I just gave up. However, if you just need it to make certain software run, many of them may include partial libraries. LignumCad and NetGen allow you to download taylored-down Ocascade libraries, but I haven't tried them and don't know as well if they are suitable for any other use. I hope it helps you.
