Installation of Totem PL Parser

Install Totem PL Parser by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr    \
            --disable-quvi   \
            --disable-static &&

If you wish to run the test suite, disable two tests which fail, by running:

sed -e '/g_test_add_func (\"\/parser\/parsability/d' \
    -e '/g_test_add_func (\"\/parser\/parsing\/xml_mixed_cdata/d' \
    -i plparse/tests/parser.c

To test the results, issue: make check. You will need an active internet connection in order to successfully complete all tests.

Now, as the root user:

make install
