Success and failure..........
After looking some information and deliberating, ignoring dependencies really did sound like a bad idea. Even though it was only one that seemed a common error. So I built from the tarball instead. Easy enough to do (barring the usual dependency nightmares) but I prefer package management. Still, its better that than screwing something up.
The good... Glitter runs. The bad. It gives me an error Gary/servbuf not implemented on this system. So perhaps it needs something more than FC2... which Yellow Dog is based on.
Im not giving up. I have Pan but would like something akin to Grabit on Windows.
