Building source/bin

Hi all,

I am trying to build the Rosetta I installed a few weeks ago. The download was titled Rosetta_2014.22.56873, which I believe is a version of Rosetta 3. The problem I have having is that the main/source/bin folder is empty and the main/source/build folder is not completely created either. When I enter the command "scons bin" while in main/source, scons starts creating the source/build folder instead of source/bin. Also I am confused as to the exact function of the build folder. Anyone who has had a similar problem or suggestions, please let me know. The package I eventually want to use is fixbb.linuxgcc.

source/build holds the actual object files as they build, and the linked executables.

source/bin holds symlinks to the executables for convenience.

You should be using the files (linked to) in source/bin.

I'm not sure what you mean by "not completely created" - does scons report success or failure?

Finally, you should use "scons bin mode=release", not "scons bin", to get the optimized executables (they'll run faster). Add -j# where # is the number of processors on your machine you want to use for multithreaded compiling.

I terminated scons before it finished because I saw it was creating in source/build instead of source/bin. Does it create both when it fully runs?

I fully ran scons bin mode=release and the source/bin folder did get created. Thank you and sorry for the confusion.
