it installs the same way as any otehr package... nothign remarkable. just download the source from gift.sf.net and follow any standard tar.gz installation guide, such as the one in the "Linux - General" forum, right at the top

ok i tried that ran the configure and it said "warning this does not come with a client or network "

then after that i tried to run the program and it gives me this error

*** GIFT-FATAL: couldn't load protocol in file /usr/local/lib/giFT/libOpenFT.la: file not found
*** Often times more information can be found in the log file or with the -v command line switch

I did something wrong. Can you help me?

I ran into the same pb: trying to install the openft plugin wouldn't work because libgift was missing and trying to install gift wouldn't work because there was no plugin :-))

My way to overcome this was to first install version 0.11.1 which is a full package (gift and openft), then install the last version of openft, libltdl-devel and finally gift itself. giftd & (instead of giFT &) and here we are...

checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gcc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cc... no
checking for cl... no
configure: error: no acceptable C compiler found in $PATH
See `config.log' for more details.
