Configure went fine

And I cant find fam development libraries on the web . Is there something wrong that I am doing at the configure stage ?

cd kmess
./configure --prefix /usr

I cant figure this out!

Hi is in the devel package

just look for "fam-devel" in yahoo, or any other search engine.

works with me

Hi, this worked fine with me.
Some things to note:
*in mandrake 9.1 you have the package version 2.6.9 ,
so the development version should also be 2.6.9 (
With me, installing 2.6.5, the link in the previous reply, didn't work.

*note also that 2.6.10 does not seem to contain the library in all rpms that can be found on the net, so make sure the one you download contains it.

A quick update for anyone with this similar problem...
If you're running Mandrake 9.1(+) you can just use the install cds.
RPMdrake.. search for 'libfam' .. and install the devel package.
