Question eroaster issues! n()()b


Hi all,
Gotta say, excellent forum. I've solved a truck load of problems with out ever having to post, until now.......On to business.
I'm attempting to install eroaster with no luck although, Xcdroast works fine. Cdrecord is installed and running fine from cli and gnome-python 1.99.16 installed with no errors. I'm assuming that it is a 'lib' issue by the information that I have found but, I don't know how to either get them in the right place or tell eroaster to look somewhere else for them. From what I understand, the gnome-python stuff is in /usr/lib and eroaster is looking in /usr/local/lib. Here is the error...

loading cache ./config.cache
checking for a BSD compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking for python... /usr/bin/python
checking for python version >= 1.5.2... 2.2.2 ok
checking for gnome-python... failed: get it from ftp://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/stable/latest/sources/

Here is my ld.so.conf (also did ldconfig)

/usr/local/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/i386-slackware-linux/lib
/opt/kde/lib
/usr/lib

Hope that's enough info. Any ideas????
Thanks in advance!

Did you try:

./configure --help

There may be an option where you can specify the location of gnome-python.

11 minute response time! GOOD LOOKN' OUT

I looked at the ./configure --help once before but, I'm confused as to whether the "--libdir=/blah/blah" option tells ./configure to look in that directory for the files it needs or does that specify the directory to install to.

--libdir=DIR object code libraries in DIR [EPREFIX/lib]

Thanks

if you are positive it is installed then what i normally do is to read through the configure script and find out exactly what test is done to find the dependency and go from there.

What exactly do I look for in the script?

I did find a line in the script where it says,
PYGNOME='python -c "from gnome.ui import *" 2>&1'
it goes on with the error message to display if the test fails. The problem is that "gnome.ui" does not exist.

Is that the problem?

Kind of an update to my problem.

I looks like gnome-python isn't installing, even though it proceeds with the installation without any errors. Any ideas on where to go from there?

To close this thread...
I was trying to use the "stable" version, instead I tried using the version under development and it now works fine. Thanx
