I’ve installed Sparky Linux (Debian based) on my very old computer (Asus EEE PC 1000HE). Tried many linux distros before but this one is the fastest for me. But the Mudlet version in Debian repositories is out of date. So I have to install it manually. I tried to download it from mudlet website but I can’t open AppImage file.(I made it executable from permissions) So I downloaded latest version from GitHub. That’s not an AppImage file, but it needs to be installed. I’ve tried the instructions in this web site https://wiki.mudlet.org/w/Compiling_Mudlet#Compiling_on_Debian_.27Sid.27
But when I try to do this one: sudo luarocks install lua-yajl
Error: Could not find library file for YAJL
No file libyajl.a in /usr/lib
No file libyajl.a in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
No file libyajl.so in /usr/lib
No file libyajl.so in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
No file matching libyajl.so.* in /usr/lib
No file matching libyajl.so.* in /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu
You may have to install YAJL in your system and/or pass YAJL_DIR or YAJL_LIBDIR to the luarocks command.
Example: luarocks install lua-yajl YAJL_DIR=/usr/local
And other steps in web site don’t work because of this error. I’m stuck and I don’t know what to do. I’m a beginner linux user and don’t know anything about this code and command things. I prefer linux because it’s safer and faster then windows. Especially on very old computers like mine. Is there any easy way to install Mudlet? Anyone able to help me?
