GMP-ECM - installation - how to compile - Ubuntu 15
I've downloaded the tar.gz for GMP 7.0.4
Ran the recommended command ./configure && make & make install Installation appeared to go well, as I now have a directory full of files, mostly of the form .c and .h My question is, now what? What am I supposed to run from here? Do I need to compile one or more of the C files? |

If all is compiled, you should be able to type in a terminal (in any folder):
Code:
ecm --help Code:
echo 123456789876543212345678987654321 >ecmIn Code:
ecm -v 3000000 <ecmIn Code:

In thinking over my previous response, I'm wondering if I misinterpreted your post. Are you saying you have no ecm program installed, even though all seemed to compile correctly?
For all my compilations of ECM, I compiled GMP first and then ECM, doing each step individually and using the suggested 'make check" for both gmp and ECM. I do have a page you might find of interest, that steps through gmp and gmp-ecm installations on an Ubuntu machine, on the way toward installing and running Aliqueit: Steps to install and set up Aliqueit on an Ubuntu* computer |
