Dear Madam or Sir,

I'm trying to install Seg3D on my fedora 24 workstation, and failing as
you may guess from the fact that I write an email.

I have qt-devel 4.8.7 installed, as well as CMake. Following your
instructions I hit

cmake ../Superbuild

in the bin/ folder, followed by make or gmake. Both fail at the same point:


Writing grammar tables to
if test "xno" != "xno" ; then \
case no in \
upgrade) ensurepip="--upgrade" ;; \
install|*) ensurepip="" ;; \
esac; \

./python -E -m ensurepip \
$ensurepip --root=/ ; \
make[3]: Leaving directory
cd /home/tengels/bin/Seg3D-2.3.2/bin/Externals/Source/Python_external &&
/usr/bin/cmake -E touch
[ 52%] Completed 'Python_external'
/usr/bin/cmake -E make_directory
/usr/bin/cmake -E touch
/usr/bin/cmake -E touch
make[2]: Leaving directory '/home/tengels/bin/Seg3D-2.3.2/bin'
[ 55%] Built target Python_external
make[1]: Leaving directory '/home/tengels/bin/Seg3D-2.3.2/bin'
Makefile:86: recipe for target 'all' failed
make: *** [all] Error 2
Building Seg3D returned an error

Either the code failed to build properly or

the testing programs failed to complete without

every single test program passing the test.


The above output was generated by ./ --verbose

Do you have any advice what might go wrong?
