Question PengAol


question #1 hey guys... i downloaded pengaol and i was wondering how to install it. the readme html files say
2.3 Compilation and installation

In order to compile and install Peng on your system, type the following in the base directory of the Peng distribution:


% ./recompile


Since Peng uses

autoconf

you should have not trouble compiling it.

Where do i type this ? i cant figure it out
===========================================
question #2Hey guys, i downloaded this and thought id give it a try. xmms-1.2.8.tar.gz. how do i install .tar.gz's? The readme says
2. Installation
---------------

These libraries are needed to compile XMMS. (I NEED THIS RIGHT)

gtk/glib 1.2.2 or better.
ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/v1.2/

For libc5 users, you also need to obtain, (DO I NEED THIS?)

gnu gettext 0.10 (use configure --with-gnu-gettext)
ftp://prep.ai.mit.edu/pub/gnu/gettex...xt-0.10.tar.gz

linuxthreads 0.71
http://www.xmms.org/files/libc5/linuxthreads.tar.gz

Thread safe Xlibs (at least aware)
http://www.xmms.org/files/libc5/XFree86-3.3-libs.tar.gz (thread aware)

If you want XMMS to play mod/s3m/med and formats supported by mikmod
you need to install libmikmod before running ./configure on XMMS.

http://www.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/apps/sound/libs/

For the OpenGL plugin you'll need Mesa 3.0 or better.

http://www.mesa3d.org/ mesa what? mesa demos? mesalib?

To compile the Ogg Vorbis plugin you'll need libvorbis from:

http://www.vorbis.com/download_unix.psp got it

2.1 Basic Installation
----------------------

cd xmms-1.2.8 where do i type this stuff?
./configure
make
make install

This will put the binary in /usr/local/bin and plugins in
/usr/local/lib/xmms/

2.2 Borderless Installation
---------------------------

As far as I know most WM's accepts GTK decoration hints so it will
not have borders. But some WM's can't handle this so you have to
set in manually.

AfterStep 1.0 ~/.steprc HUH???
Style "XMMS_Player" NoTitle, NoHandles
Style "XMMS_Playlist" NoTitle, NoHandles
Style "XMMS_Equalizer" NoTitle, NoHandles

AfterStep 1.4 ~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/database
Style "XMMS_Player" NoTitle, NoHandles
Style "XMMS_Playlist" NoTitle, NoHandles
Style "XMMS_Equalizer" NoTitle, NoHandles

Fvwm's ~/.fvwm95rc
Style "XMMS_Player" NoTitle
Style "XMMS_Playlist" NoTitle
Style "XMMS_Equalizer" NoTitle

CTWM's ~/.ctwmrc
NoTitle and NoBorder sections:
NoTitle {
"xmms"
}

NoBorder {
"xmms"
}
================================
question #3 the file names that say "xmms-devel-1.2.8-1.i386" .i386 at the end.. can i install that even though i have i686?

ALSO>>>>>>> i downloaded the new kernal for my redhat. and here is the install instructions i got.

Instructions II
You must be root for the rest of the commands. The examples will continue as if you downloaded kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14.i686.rpm. Next install the rpm:

rpm -ihv kernel-ntfs-2.4.18-14.i686.rpm

Preparing... ############################### [100%]
1:kernel-ntfs ############################### [100%]

There should be no errors, just #'s.

This is the only command we actually needed, but we'll go on and test what we have done. Remember, you may have to change the commands slightly for your kernel version.

Next load the kernel module

/sbin/modprobe ntfs
========================================
so i typed "rpm -ihv kernel-ntfs-2.4.20-8.i686.rpm" and it said file not found... WTF!!!! i typed that in the terminal... am i doing something wrong?
========================================

Hi, wow... a lot of questions here, i'll do what i can.
For a place to type the commands, you'll need to open a terminal (xterm will do) and use the command su to change the terminal's user to root (it'll want the root password).
The normal way to compile software is, once you're in a root terminal)
Code:
cd /path/to/source
./configure
make
make install
As for XMMS, i'd advise using the rpm method of intallation, as you're using redhat.
Regarding the kernel, you were in the correct directory or using absolute paths?
Good luck, hope this helps.
Edit: I just checked and found that pengaol seems to be available in rpm format also.
