I must be doing something funtamentally wrong....
that's the conclution I've come to after realising that everything I've tried installing from source, has failed...
First of all...
I'm running Mandrake linux 10.0 official release.
I've tried installing:
- gcc 3.4.2
- GTK 2.4.13
- Glib 2.3.7
- pango 1.4.0
(I've also tried urpmi... that doesn't seem to do the trick either)
what i have done:
- I've downloaded the sources, to folder /home/"username"/Documents/Dls
- untar'ed them in this folder(in subfolder for each app)
- opened rxvt console (or other console) in that folder
and then performed commands:
- $ ./configure
- $ make
- going root
- $ make install
(with the any additional parameters given in the README or INSTALL file)
and getting different errors... even though some of them completed the make install...
look at some of my other posts if you want to know the exact errors for each app(some of my posts don't have error specs)
after having looked into it, it shows that none of the efforts i've made has payed off....
The main questions is...
What am I forgetting, leaving out or.....????
please... any help on this appreciated!!!
