Hi Knut,

thank you for the script.

Hm, will I be able to get a system where I can build LilyPond again?
Urs, building guile 1.8 is a pretty trivial and fast process. Just do
it and don't care about debian
OK, I see how you build Guile directly into the LilyPond build
directory, and building Guile worked on first attempt.

I notice that upon each execution of the script Guile will be erased and
rebuilt from scratch. Am I right to assume that I could skip this step
for following builds?
And more, can't I build Guile once, into some other directory and rather
than rebuilding it each time place a symlink into the LilyPond
installation directory? This would be very useful as I tend to have
multiple builds in parallel.
Multiple builds of lilypond at the same time?
Attached you'll find a script that builds guile and lilypond from
local copies of their git repositories.
Obviously you'll have to adapt some paths defined and and used in the

I did so (and commented out make doc for now). First compilation failed
due to missing dblatex, but the second one failed with an error I didn't
really understand. Attached you'll find the tail of the build log - any
ideas what is wrong and what I can do?

After the failed build:

cd  /home/urs/git/lilypond/source/build/scripts

Does out/lilypond-invoke-editor exist? Is it executable?

Does /home/urs/git/lilypond/source/build/scripts/build/out/help2man exist?

If out/lilypond-invoke-editor exists and is marked to be executable: What does  'sudo 
strace out/lilypond-invoke-editor --help 2>&1 | grep guile | grep openat' tell
