I came across this article on how to compile Blender with Cycles, but I keep getting a “Error 2” message, with no information as to what the error means. The place of the error seems somewhat random, and can appear almost at any point of the build, but there is one error that I get nearly every time.
Linking C static library …/…/…/lib/libbf_blenkernel.a
[ 29%] Built target bf_blenkernel
make: *** [all] Error 2
That is all it tells me. There really isn’t anything else I can show you. I’m copy pasting everything into the terminal, so there shouldn’t be any typos on my part. I’ve installed all the dependencies that are listed in the instructions, plus the ones listed here.
Open Image IO compiled fine, with no errors at all.
I am running Ubuntu 11.04 x64 on an intel i5 processor (if that makes any difference, but I think it might).
