wget & GNUTLS Installation Issue (required for Broadcom Wireless Chipset BCM43224)
Dear All,

i almost spent 3-4 hours in googling & "./configure"ing & what not... now i m lost & came here for help...

I am trying to install GNUTLS package but while doing the "./configure..." i am getting error
checking for P11_KIT... configure: error: Package requirements (p11-kit-1 >= 0.2) were not met:

No package 'p11-kit-1' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables P11_KIT_CFLAGS
and P11_KIT_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I tried to downloand p11-kit in both rpm & tar.gz format (p11-kit-0.7.tar.gz / p11-kit-0.6-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm)... though tar.gz package got installed without any error but still GNUTLS is giving the same error... & while installing .rpm package it got failed coz of following dependencies...
p11-kit-0.6-1.fc17.x86_64.rpm > dependency > libc.2.14
glibc.2.14 > dependency > glibc-common.2.93...x86_64

glibc...x86_64 got failed coz glibc is required... then i downloaded glibc-2.14.tar.gz & tried to install it but while doing ./configure it gave error that "you should consider different directory for configuration file..."

See, i have no idea what these glib's are for or that p-11-kit is (IT WILL BE GREAT IF ANYONE CAN EXPLAIN WHAT ARE THOSE glib's & p-11-kit FOR)... all i wanted to install Broadcom BCM43224 wireless chipset driver (I have a dell wireless card & its not working in RHEL 6.1 so i googled & found that i need my chipset's driver)... BCM43224 driver installation requires "wget" & wget needs GNUTLS thing...

Please help me in following things:
1. Installation of those glibs... (IF POSSIBLE explanation also...)
2. installation of GNUTLS

if anyone has installed BCM43224 or BCM43XX chipset driver, then update me on that...

Thanks in Advance...

RHEL 5 ? RHEL 6 ?

All system packages are already present on your OS :
gnutls, glibc etc.

The parts you are missing : The development files.

Install the correct versions with your package manager :
glibc-devel glibc-headers kernel-headers kernel-devel gnutls-devel.

None of the above can use versions different from the system versions.

If you don't have a Redhat account and don't want to pay,
use a free version of RHEL : CentOS
Or migrate RHEL to CentOS
Look for ""Migration from RHEL5 to CentOS5"" etc.
