Your comments make sense to me. Thank you.

This is bad “Please provide more information – at least 60 characters” because I cannot add comments less than 60 characters.

Good point. It seems a bug in the QA program that use the answer length limit (60) as the comment length limit (20). Fixed it. 20 character comments should be good now.

1, Read here[1]. You can also choose the way to remove ‘install_docs’ from SSL for problem 2 in [1].
2, You need also install pkg-config and gettext. (sudo apt-get install pkg-config gettext).

Other suggestions:

[PARSEC] Error: Cannot find local build configuration ‘gcc-pthreads.bldconf’ for package parsec.freqmine.

You need to try command “parsecmgmt -a build -p freqmine -c gcc
” for package freqmin because it is implemented by openMP instead of gcc-pthreads.
