problem to install xmgrace on fedora 16
 
hi everyone.
currently i installed fedora 16 on core I3 desktop. after it i was interested to install xmgrace on it. i installed the following files

fftw2-2.1.5-22.fc15.i686
libpng10-1.0.56-1.fc16.i686
libXp-1.0.0-16.fc15.i686
fftw-3.3-3.fc16.i686
pdflib-lite-7.0.5-1.fc16.i686
grace-5.1.22-9.fc16.i686

then the next step was to replace id.so.comf file having the text

include ld.so.conf.d/*.conf
/usr/kerberos/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/lib/sane
/usr/lib/qt-3.1/lib
/usr/local/lib

in it. i have replaced this file but still xmgrace is not working. pleas help me to solve the problem. thanks in anticipation

what should you do? you should use the system you installed... that all looks totally normal...

were you expecting a GUI but maybe din't install it? If you run:

Code:

yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment"
it should add in everything you need to run GNOME.

You shouldn't install fedora 14 though, it's out of date, and won't bring you happiness if you're new to linux.

GUI means the desktop. It is not installed, therefore you cannot use. Please install it as it is described.

you don't know what a GUI is? That's nothign to do with being new to Linux...

so did it install everything?

you should be able to run "init 5" now to load up the graphical login, and if that all works well, you can change the default level to 5 by following this - http://fedorasolved.org/post-install-solutions/runlevel

I strongly recommend to create a restricted user, before running the GUI (and to install a supported version of Fedora). Running the GUI as root is dangerous and will lead to errors, since not everything on the GUI works as intended when you are root.
