Apollon installation problem in Mandrake 10.1 - can't find ltdl


Hello,

Very, *very* new to Linux here. Using Mandrake 10.1. I'm trying to install Apollon using the all-in-one installer. I actually managed to get it to start installing (which is a major accomplishment for me!) Here's the problem I run into:

I type: ./apollon-installer-0.7.run

A graphical interface pops up. A couple of screens later, I'm at the Installing Apollon window and it says 'Configuring GIFT'. This runs for several seconds and stops, 'An error occured'. Here's the relevant part of the log file:

checking for lt_dlopen in -lltdl... no
* configure: error:
* *** Couldn't find ltdl library. If it is installed in a non-standard
* *** location, please supply --with-ltdl=DIR on the configure command line,
* *** where `DIR' is the prefix where ltdl is installed (such as /usr,
* *** /usr/local, or /usr/pkg). If that doesn't work, check config.log.
*
***** Return value 1

I found the rpm package for ltdl online, installed it, and was told that all files are already installed.

I typed 'locate ltdl' and found what I think are the relevant files sitting in /usr/lib

Using the log file suggestion, I tried re-running the installer with the added option:
./ apollon-installer-0.7.run --with-ltil=/usr/lib
But it did not accept that as a valid option. So I'm stuck. It appears I have the ltdl files, but the installer can't find them. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
BS

Note the switch is --with-ltdl not --with-ltil, that's why it is telling you it's an invalid option. Try again with --with-ltdl=/usr

Sorry, that was a typo on my part.....I did use the --with-ltdl switch. No effect.

Mandrake has apollon in the urpmi repositories. You may want to install that insead of compiling your own version.

Question Apollon install problem

I'm running Mandrake 10.1

I was able to install Apollon (as root) with:
# urpmi -v apollon

It had to install 5 other packages and it
seemed to install OK.

$ which apollon
/usr/bin/apollon

However, when I try to fire it up, it tanks...

$ apollon
apollon: symbol lookup error: apollon: undefined symbol: _ZN11KMainWindow7setIconERK7QPixmap
ERROR: Communication problem with apollon, it probably crashed.

So, stalled for now...

apollon for mandrake/mandriva

I have since switched over to Ubuntu 5.04
using the synaptic package manager, (apt-get),
I was able to install apollon with no problems

I would recommend Ubuntu to anyone looking for a great operating system.
