garnome help


I always encounter this when I use this script. Anyone knows how to fix the following error?

*** GAR GAR GAR! Failed to download download/xft-2.1.2.tar.gz! GAR GAR GAR! ***

I haven't built garnome yet, I'm reading this as I consider doing it myself, but this is caused by not being able to find a file on the server it requested it from. The server pdx.freedesktop.org isn't responding today in any fashion, perhaps it is having problems. You could possible avoid compiling xft but I think you'll want that.

[edit]
After building it myself and noting the same problem I found this, from the main mailing list archive for garnome.
Apparently the pdx.freedesktop.org server has moved some files recently, and this fixes the problem for those at least.

Thanks for the reply. I finally figured out that much as well. Already got past that stage. Currently having problems with Epiphany, wouldn't compile. Think it has some problem with my mozilla being 1.2.1 version or something. I downloaded rpms for version 1.4.6, all devel files, and the rest. Wish me luck.

If you want to avoid installing mozilla rpms you can use garnome to download and build the latest ( and neccessary ) source code version of mozilla.

Just go into the garnome-0.27/misc/mozilla directory and issue a good ole' `make` command.

I for one had some trouble getting rpms that made my gnome-desktop build happy. Epiphany was the one giving me grief so if you are experiencing the same thing give it a try.

This worked for me on RedHat 9.0 stock distrobution.

Good luck.

Ben
