Welcome to LQ.
The Gnome / Nautilus "system packages" are :
They are always installed by default,
.. are dependencies for Gnome / Nautilus.
And if you change any of those, do not expect everything
to work. You are just lucky, that some Gnome still works.
( Changing the libs : 500 application depends on those four,
and should also be recompiled, all 500 ! )
The standard way : install the development packages with
up2date using the package manager or the command line :
atk-devel glib2-devel gtk2-devel pango-devel
rrdtool + cacti for EL4 is in the epel.repo ( rrdtool-1.2.27-3.el4 )
su -c 'rpm -Uvh http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/epel/4/i386/epel-release-4-9.noarch.rpm'
You can install 'yum' from the epel.repo too ..
> > yum-2.4.3-0.5.el4.noarch.rpm
.. And thus use this easy tool for package install :
# yum install rrdtool cacti
Provides cacti-0.8.7e-3.el4.noarch.rpm →
