Error compiling VBA "Cannot find libPng"


Hello, I'm trying to install VBA (Visual Boy Advance) from source. However, when I run ./configure, it says, "Cannot find libpng" I put in my Slackware 10 disk and did an installpkg of the libpng (version 1.2.5 I think) and tried again. Same thing! Then I tried to make a link called 'libpng' in /usr/lib/ to 'libpng.so.3.1.2.5' and tried again. Still no sucess.

Please help, and have a nice day,

Dustin W.

Install the development package of your required libraries as well. In this case it will be called something like libpng-devel.

Though you are not actually "developing" anything, you need the development packages when you compile programs that require a particular library.

Hope that helps,
R.
