Grip and K3B problems


Hello All,

I have tried to install both Grip and K3B on my FC3 laptop, but when I tried installing the rpm for Grip it told me that it could not find:
Quote:
gnome-libs
libcurl.so.2
libghttp
I have tried to search for them on Google, but the only one I have been able to find has been libghttp.

Apparently gnome-libs is NEEDED for GNOME (makes sense), but if that is the case then I don't see why Grip can't find it, and libcurl.so.2 is meant to be for an app called Curl (lol), but I can't find a download site for either of those libs!

For K3B, it said I needed
Quote:
libid3-3.8.so.3
libmad.so.0
I found libid3-3.8.so.3 here but it's only for Mandrake. I think I've found libmad.so.0 here but I am really unsure if I should download it or not.

Please may someone tell me if these are the correct files, and for the ones I have been unable to find, please may you provide a download site? Thanks in advance,

J_K9

[EDIT]
P.S I'm also not too keen on compiling from source!

get the packages from your install cd's.

Also, IIRC grip is a gnome-2 app, shouldn't need the gnome-libs - unless fedora split it. The old gnome desktops ( 1.x ) used a package called gnome-libs, and some packages still need these ( like gnucash etc..) but grip doesn't.


EDIT: why don't you use yum to install these?

Thank you for your reply. I have an install DVD, but I wouldn't know which packages are which! Should I just install everything on the DVD? Answering your question, I don't use yum because (I don't know how to use it, and) I download the rpms on my brother's PC because I don't know how to set up my broadband modem on my Linux laptop (but that's a different story...). I am trying to install both these apps while running GNOME, not KDE (which I also have installed). But, if Grip doesn't need gnome-libs, then why is it asking me for them?

it depends on what it means by "gnome-libs". if it means the gnome-2.x libraries, then yes ( but you already have these if you are running the gnome-2.x desktop anyway).

setting up yum:

http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/sho...yum+repo+gedit

if you do it manually, don't install everything from the dvd, you will waste countless space on stuff you don't want/need. just install curl, libghttp, libmad and libid3, and if you want, gnome-libs-1.4.x.

It would be much easier to use yum or apt.
Code:
#yum install k3b
Code:
#yum install grip
All dependencies will be resolved, saving you time and effort.

Yes, but I don't know how to set it up with my broadband modem. I am assuming that yum requires you to be on the internet (so that it can download the files it needs, right?). Anyway, I have it in front of me now so I'll try and install the things manually.

If that doesn't work (because the files aren't on the DVD) then I'll try yum, but I don't know how I can get it on the internet. I can try it on the network here, but it's a MS Exchange Server, so I might have to configure the way it accesses the internet (?).

Thanks,

reddazz: I tried your yum method, while I had the Linux laptop plugged into the network here (which worked), and here is the output:
Quote:
[root@gobledee Grip]# yum install grip-3.3.0-1.i386.rpm

You have enabled checking of packages via GPG keys. This is a good thing.
However, you do not have any GPG public keys installed. You need to download
the keys for packages you wish to install and install them.
You can do that by running the command:
rpm --import public.gpg.key
For more information contact your distribution or package provider.

[root@gobledee Grip]# rpm --import public.gpg.key
error: public.gpg.key: import read failed.

__J: While I tried looking for those libraries on the Fedora Core 3 DVD (of which I found none, by the way) I managed to find rpms for both Grip and K3B on there, which I installed with ease. I now only have one problem: Whenever I put an audio CD in, CD Player opens automatically and small window pops up saying:
Quote:
Drive error
I then close CD Player, and when I open up Grip, another small window pops up saying:
Quote:
Error: Unable to initialize [/dev/dvd]
I have already configured Grip to read from /dev/dvd instead of /dev/cdrom as you can see, but there is obviously something wrong because even if I put a different audio cd in or if I change the music player, I always get an error. The same happens when I am trying to play a DVD: xine tells me that it can't find anything on /dev/dvd, even though the disc is mounted on the desktop.

Please may you tell me if I need to change something in order to be able to play both music cds and DVD's. Thanks in advance,

J_K9

it's not mounted ( technically you can't mount an audio cd)

what I was trying to see is what is your device you are trying to access?

from your output above you have ide, so maybe /dev/hdc or /dev/hdd?

/dev/cdrom and /dev/dvd are symlinks back to /dev/xxx ( where xxx is the actual device file itself).

To use yum, with GPG keys you need to do

Code:
#rpm --import /usr/share/doc/rpm-4.3.2/RPM-GPG-KEY

So __J should I type in terminal
Quote:
mount /dev/hdc
And if that doesn't work
Quote:
mount /dev/hdd
etc... until it works?

OR should I change the location Grip looks to find the audio CD? Please clarify. Thanks in advance,

J_K9

If yu are configuring grip to access your cdrom device, you would point it to a device such as /dev/hdc or /dev/cdrom without using the "mount" part. Whats your cd device anyway?
