"...src.rpm can't be installed"
I use openSuse 10.2.
I want to install the new gimp version from the gimp-2.4.0-rc3 source.
On configuring, I get a "Couldn't find PyGTK>=2.10.4" error. Usually, I skip it with --disable-python. But, that time, I want to install it.
So, I had to update to python-gtk-2.10.4. OK.
Dependances are required for python-gtk-devel-2.10.4 :
python-gobject2-devel and python-cairo-devel.
With rpm.pbone.net, I found .rpm.html files for these dependances. In these html files, there is a weird message : "Hem! It's impossible ;-) This RPM doesn't exist in any ftp".
But there is a link for .src.rpm files that I downloaded.
I go to the directory containing the src.rpm file and I run
#rpm build --rebuild python-gobject2-2.12.3-60.src.rpm.
I get a dry message: "...src.rpm can't be installed".
Why that? What must I do?
