wxPython install problem


I'm at a sticking point trying to get wxPython installed. Here's the commands I've input (taken directly from the README file, only altered to take the appropriate directories into account):

Quote:
cd wxPythonSrc-2.4.0 # or whatever the top-level dir is
mkdir build
cd build
../configure --with-gtk \
--prefix=$WXPREF \
--enable-rpath=$WXPREF/lib \
--with-opengl \
--enable-geometry \
--enable-optimise \
--enable-debug_flag \
And here's the results:

Configured wxWindows 2.4.2 for `i686-pc-linux-gnu'

Which GUI toolkit should wxWindows use? GTK
Should wxWindows be compiled in debug mode? no
Should wxWindows be linked as a shared library? yes
Should wxWindows be compiled in Unicode mode? no
What level of wxWindows compatibility should be enabled?
wxWindows 2.0 no
wxWindows 2.2 yes
Which libraries should wxWindows use?
jpeg sys
png sys
regex sys
tiff sys
zlib sys
After this I tried to make and then make install. No good. It looks like things started to go wrong when it wouldn't let the hard link be made. I'm logged in as root. What do I do about this? What am I missing?

download the rpm one.. move it to / then convert it to tar.gz untar it.. then your set.. but note that you will need both files.. the wxPython and the devil file
