Question cant make kfilter, help requested


there is a program called kfilter located here:
http://sourceforge.net/projects/kfilter/

I have KFilter3.1.0 trying to compile it on fedora core 1, kde 3.1.4-4.

I can get through ./configure just fine but when I run make I get this:

---snip---
make[2]: Entering directory `/root/kfilter-3.1/kfilter'
/bin/sh ../libtool --silent --mode=link --tag=CXX g++ -Wnon-virtual-dtor -Wno-long-long -Wundef -Wall -pedantic -W -Wpointer-arith -Wmissing-prototypes -Wwrite-strings -ansi -D_XOPEN_SOURCE=500 -D_BSD_SOURCE -Wcast-align -Wconversion -O2 -fno-exceptions -fno-check-new -o kfilter -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/usr/local/qt/lib -L/usr/lib -R /usr/lib -R /usr/local/qt/lib -R /usr/X11R6/lib driverinput.o driver.o wizard.o volumedialog.o networkdialog.o colordialog.o circuitout.o kfilterview.o kfilterdoc.o kfilter.o main.o wizard.moc.o kfilter.moc.o driverinput.moc.o colordialog.moc.o kfilterview.moc.o networkdialog.moc.o volumedialog.moc.o kfilterdoc.moc.o circuitout.moc.o -lqt-mt -lpng -lz -lm -lXext -lX11 -lSM -lICE -lpthread -lkdecore -lkdeui -lkio
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lart_lgpl_2
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [kfilter] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/kfilter-3.1/kfilter'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/kfilter-3.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
[root@cdc1 kfilter-3.1]#
---end snip---


Anyone have experience with this program or what -lart_lgpl_2 is?


Thanks,
Chris

Hmmm.....it compiled just fine on my Slack machine...........ld is an executable binary file in /usr/bin so it would seem that -lart_lgpl_2 is an option that make is looking for and not finding....

According to the documentation from KFilter's home page you need the correct version of QT:
Quote:
2.2 Requirements
The only requirement as of this writing is a working Qt install, 2.0 > version >= 1.44. Qt can be obtained from TrollTech's website here. KFilter Version >= 0.6 will need Qt version 2.x
According to that, you need version qt-1.44 or greater but not qt-2.0..............but I have qt-3.2.1 installed and it compiled okay...........

And the compile instructions in the documentation:
Quote:
2.3 Compilation and installation
In order to compile and install Kfilter on your system, untar and unzip the source tarball and build Kfilter. Type the following at your command prompt:

% tar xzf kfilter-{rev}.tar.gz
% cd kfilter-{rev}
% ./configure
% make
% make install

Be sure to replace {rev} with the revision number of the tarball you downloaded. Since Kfilter uses autoconf you should have no trouble building it. Always remember you can type

% ./configure --help

to see the full list of configuration options. Should you run into problems please report them to the the author, Martin Erdtmann



PS: I forgot to add that SourceForge still classifies it's Development Status as "4 - Beta", so it would be a good idea to contact the author.....

I did contact the author,
He replied and helped up to where I am now.
The fedora compiler didnt like this program.
I had to delete " = 0" from the files circuitout.cpp and driverinput.cpp
just to get it to compile this far...

Hmm...
I'll do some more looking around.

Hmmmmm......thinking out loud here........would installing the gcc compiler from source (with all the necessary libs) make any difference??....

Maybe removing the compiler and installing from source might make a difference......I don't know if it would work and is a bit of a bother, but it sounds like some dependency issue involved with the compiler that needs resolving.....
