Why not ask your question on the new OpenStreetMap Community Forum?

I have a machine running CentOS and I followed the instructions on http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim/Installation and have installed all the software listed there.

But when I try to run ./configure on Nominatim, I am getting the following output:

checking for proj headers in /usr/include... not found
checking for proj projection library... no
configure: error: required library not found

Someone in the forum suggested to find "org_proj4_Projections.h" file and add the directory path in the configure script, so did a search for the file:

# find / -name org_proj4_Projections.h

and the header apparently is there in /user/include directory. What could the problem be? Thanks

I was faced with the same issue on Fedora 19. After a lot of digging into the configure script, realized that I had to install gcc-c++ package.

My goodness, thank you so much! This solved the problem. Hopefully they update the guide to include installation of gcc-c++

Apparently, someone updated the wiki to include gcc-c++ in the installation guide. Cheers.
