Is libICE installed? Depending on your distro you might need libice-devel as well.

Check to make sure you have libice6 installed. I have not used this program, but the error you are receiving relates to this library.

Hope this helps

sorry for the newbie question , but how do i know that a library is installed on my pc or not?

another question how do i know from the error that a certain library is the source of the error..for example in our case the error
/usr/X11R6/lib/libSM.so

needs the library libice?


i have mandrake 2005..i used urpmi to check about this package
urpmi libice6
but it said no package with that name..

i checked http://rpm.pbone.net/ for that pacakge for my distribution but haven't find it

I am not sure on Mandrake, although it also uses the rpm package manager. To see if you have the package, you can open a terminal and type:

Quote:
whereis libice
or

Quote:
locate libice
This will return where (if it exists) it is. If you need it, freshrpms normaly will have it.

Hope this helps

guys thanks everyone ..
here what i have done.

locate libICE

it was not there..

then i kept searching for libICE for mandrake 2005 , i haven't found it in any place , but i think it is included in a pacakge called libxorg-x11-6.9-1.cvs20051129.1.2006.SoS.i586.rpm

i installed it using urpmi , then i made locate agin and i found it..

then make and make install and everything gone ok..

but that leave a question , why sometimes installing package in linux take hard sometimes?
and also still one question how i know that this error because of that missing library?

thx everyone again
