Getting there TAR.GZ thingy


Hi Gang,

Got has far as the configure part of installing a tar.gz file. Did this far from konsole window.
Then when I keyed in Make or Make Install, it wouldn't do anything other than STOP.

Any suggestions:


checking for libgnome-2.0 >= 2.0.0
libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0
gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4.0
gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 2.6.0
libglade-2.0 >= 2.3.6... Package libgnome-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnome-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnome-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (libgnome-2.0 >= 2.0.0
libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0
gtk+-2.0 >= 2.4.0
gnome-vfs-2.0 >= 2.6.0
libglade-2.0 >= 2.3.6) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

rpm distro's split their packages - one package will have the libraries, the other the corresponding development files needed to compile against those libs. IIRC Mandrake does not install these development packages by default, open up rpmdrake and look for a development section. what you need is for example the libgnomeui above, there will be a package named libgnomeui-2.x.x-devel - this is what you need. ( you'll need the devel package for any lib the program needs to link against)

Are you installing a package for which there is no rpm available in urpmi/rpmdrake? Because that is the sure way of getting what you want, without worrying about compiling stuff.

Hi Padma,
Thanks for the reply, I read the forum daily so that I may learn and become more efficient in using Linux. Presently I am slowly converting my WinXP system to a Linux Dependent system. Which will be on 2 computers.
I know that you are very active with Linux just from reading the forum, and I always look for your posts, as they are a great source of information. I have install Mandrake 10 Official on the 1st computer, and it went very well. However there are still some hills to climb and installing the components that I would like to use are the hurdles right now.
I know you have mentioned easy URPMI, and I find it a bit confusing as well. I have used the konsole to try installing software, but find it is limited.
My impression of Easy URPMI is that you go to a site that will display all of the software available and you can pick what you want and it will install it automatically for you. But all I get is a list of available CD's. Maybe I am still too used to the Windows environment, I don't know.

Just some thoughts.

Thanks for the kind words, jymmi.

EasyURPMI is a website that helps you configure your repository sources. (Your installation CDs are repositories, too.) You walk through the interactive steps on the site, and enter the "urpmi.addmedia" commands it gives. (Copy/Paste is your friend! ) After you are done with that, from then on you can install software just by typing "urpmi <programname>" on the command line as root, OR by starting up rpmdrake (Mandrake Control Center/Software Management) and picking things via the gui.

No more downloading "wild" rpms, and hoping you won't hit "dependency hell", or trying to compile tarballs, only to find you are missing essential libraries, etc.

Exclamation Carry on urpmi

Hallo'

So when I get to this point ....at the Konsole, I paste this in.....

[root@d207-6-255-60 jteakles]# urpmi.addmedia BitDefender-Console-Antivirus-7.0.1-3.linux-gcc29x.i586.rpmplf-free >>enter

and then I get this display......

usage: urpmi.addmedia [options] <name> <url> [with <relative_path>]
where <url> is one of
file://<path>
ftp://<login>:<password>@<host>/<path> with <relative filename of hdlist>
ftp://<host>/<path> with <relative filename of hdlist>
http://<host>/<path> with <relative filename of hdlist>
removable://<path>

and [options] are from
--help - print this help message.
--wget - use wget to retrieve distant files.
--curl - use curl to retrieve distant files.
--limit-rate - limit the download speed.
--proxy - use specified HTTP proxy, the port number is assumed
to be 1080 by default (format is <proxyhost[ort]>).
--proxy-user - specify user and password to use for proxy
authentication (format is <userassword>).
--update - create an update medium.
--probe-synthesis - try to find and use synthesis file.
--probe-hdlist - try to find and use hdlist file.
--no-probe - do not try to find any synthesis or
hdlist file.
--distrib - automatically create all media from an installation
medium.
--distrib-XXX - automatically create a medium for XXX part of a
distribution, XXX may be main, contrib, updates or
anything else that has been configured ;-)
--from - use specified url for list of mirrors, the default is
http://www.linux-mandrake.com/mirrorsfull.list
--version - use specified distribution version, the default is taken
from the version of the distribution told by the
installed mandrake-release package.
--arch - use specified architecture, the default is arch of
mandrake-release package installed.
--virtual - create virtual media wich are always up-to-date,
only file:// protocol is allowed.
--no-md5sum - disable MD5SUM file checking.
-c - clean headers cache directory.
-f - force generation of hdlist files.

SO AFTER THIS DO I TYPE IN THIS;

urpmi.addmedia BitDefender-Console-Antivirus-7.0.1-3.linux-gcc29x.i586.rpmplf-free file:///home/jteakles/bitdefender

what yea think...
thanks for the help

Angry You would think that....

You would think that....

Somebody has made a GUI package installing for Linux !!! Regardless if it is tar.gz or rpm

YES I know about EASY URPMI, >>> which is an accromyn for "U really are Pretty Much Independant" in figuring this shit out.

Why do I appear to install things using RPMdrake and cannot find them later? I'm serious, I go through the hoops, it says it is successful, when I go to try the program out , its not there.

Where do they go, because they sure has heck don't end up on my file system.

there is nothing stopping you from making a GUI package installer for both tar's and rpm's.

on your second point, use rpm to query the package and find out what it installed and where.

IF you followed the instructions on the EasyUrpmi site correctly, you will have typed in one (or more) "urpmi.addmedia" commands at that time. Once those have completed, try typing "urpmi BitDefender". (Not "urpmi.addmedia" - that is for adding a repository - CD/Website/local repository.)

Or just go to the rpmdrake "Install Software" screen, and type "BitDefender" in the search box. Assuming it finds it, just select it, and click the Install button.

If you have downloaded the BitDefender rpm file, try cd-ing to the directory it is in, and typing "urpmi ./BitDefender-Console-Antivirus-7.0.1-3.linux-gcc29x.i586.rpm" if that is what you named the downloaded file.


Edit: I think we may be talking at cross-purposes here. EasyURPMI is for setting up repository information, not for actually retrieving/installing software. Within EasyURPMI, select "main", "contrib", "updates", and "plf" sites, and enter those urpmi.addmedia commands. THEN you can use "upmi <programname>" to install software.
