Smile installing gtk - wants libxml2.


Hello
I'm trying to install gtk-gnutella-0.92. I've unpacked the tarball. when I go to the dir and type ./configure it whirs away for 20 seconds, and returns:
============================================
Frontend : Gtk 1.2
Persistant filters : no (libxml2 missing)
NOTE: filters will not be persisted. You should seriously consider
installing libxml2 as the filters are a central element of
gtk-gnutella and you WILL want that they are kept across
sessions. If your distribution does not have a libxml2
development package, you can get the sources here:
http://www.libxml.org
Remote shell : no
gNet traffic compression : no (you need to install zlib from www.zlib.org)
IP TOS (Type of Service) : yes
It's recommended and probably necessary to use GNU make. If GNU make
is not the default on your system, it might be installed as gmake.
============================================

...So, I'm trying to install libxml2. I downloaded libxml2-2.4.23-4mdk.src.rpm from http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/se...query=libxml2, and installed it succesfully with no error messages.

When I then switch back to the terminal window and try ./configure again, I get the same message. Whatupwidat?

Have you compiled the .src.rpm or just installed it? The package should be on your instalaltion cd or, if you don't have it, you can get it from one of Mandrake mirrors. Oh, you may also need libxml2-devel (if such a package exists).

I'm not sure what you mean. I click on the libxml2 .src.rpm and mandy9 opens kpackage. I choose "install" and off it goes.
For compiling I'm used to then going to a directory and doing the ./configure make make install routine, but I don't know which directory to go to with this .src.rpm.

You can find the packages (normal .RPMs, not .src.rpm) here (or using any other Mandrake mirror):
ftp://ftp.esat.net/pub/linux/mandrak...Mandrake/RPMS/

Here are locations of all the packages:
ftp://ftp.esat.net/pub/linux/mandrak...-1mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://ftp.esat.net/pub/linux/mandrak...-1mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://ftp.esat.net/pub/linux/mandrak...-1mdk.i586.rpm
ftp://ftp.esat.net/pub/linux/mandrak...-1mdk.i586.rpm
