man: Always the first source of information

Search : VERY potent!

If all else fails: Google


Cheers,

It's .src.rpm, the installation is different. You need to build it first. The command to do it will be
rpmbuild --rebuild lmule-1.2.1-1.src.rpm
Then you can find the freshe rpm in /usr/src/RPM/RPMS/yourarchitecuture/ and install as in my previous post.

configure: error:
Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
where wxWindows libraries are installed (returned by
'wx-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
equivalent variable and wxWindows is version 2.4.0 or above.
Or this might also be a bug in our configure. Please try again
with --with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config
(replace /usr/bin/wx-config with a valid path to your wx-config)

error: Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.70895 (%build)


RPM build errors:
user andi does not exist - using root
user andi does not exist - using root
Bad exit status from /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.70895 (%build)

Download the wxGTK and libwxGTK packages and install them first.
