    Error trying to start up SRU/SRW server: "...yazproxy: Command not found"

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    SRU server dies immediately after implementing rc 881 for SRU/SRW server. The $LOGDIR/sru_server_5661.log shows the following error:

    /exlibris/aleph/a18_1/aleph/exe/yazproxy: Command not found.

    Following v18 rep_change 881, the SRU/SRW$alephe_exe/yazproxy is created by ./alephm/source/sru/compile_sru .

    Step 2 in that rep_change says "Compile the sru_server ..." . (This compile_sru should have created the yazproxy.)

    compile_sru gives the following errors:

    checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/bin/pkg-config
    checking for libXML2... Not found
    configure: error: libxml2 development libraries not found.
    Compiling YAZ...
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    Error: Make YAZ failed

    The $aleph_product/libxml2 files are required but are not present.

    A simple tutorial that explains how to compile and install libxml2 on Linux can be found at .
