I got a similar error in Mandrake 9.2 when compiling gift. I had not installed the C / C++ compilers off of the second disk. You may not have installed them as well.

You should be able to install them with the package installer in the Mandrake control center.

There are Mandrake tailored RPMs for giFT in the Penguin Liberation Front repositories.

Go here to learn how to setup your urpmi sources to include these repositories, they have some nice stuff on them and everything I have downloaded from them works perfectly.

Here is what you need to do:

1. Go to this site.

2. Follow the directions to add the PLF repositories to your urpmi sources.

3. Open Mandrake's software installer, search for gift.

4. Download and install giFT rpms.

5. Search for Apollon rpms, install them.

6. Open a console window, run gift-setup.

7. Run Apollon.

i went to the site

ok i got giFT installed,
now im trying to install apollon
on their site it says i need 4 plugins
i DLed the first one,openFT
when i type the ./configure command
i get:
checking for prefix by checking for giftd... no
checking for pkg-config... no
checking for pkg-config... no
*** The pkg-config script could not be found. Make sure it is
*** in your path, or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable
*** to the full path to pkg-config.
*** Or see http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig to get pkg-config.
configure: error: Library requirements (libgift >= 0.11.4 libgift < 0.12.0) not
met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

now
i went to that site and DLed pkgconfig and installed it
but
when i go back to openFT and type the ./configure command
i still get the same thing
what should i do?

Root is the system administrator for Unix/Linux/BSD/Posix operating systems. In order to install any rpm you'll need to do it with root access.

You should have set up a root password when you installed Mandrake.

So now, when you go to the console, before you do the commands that say to use root, type su
Then enter your root password, then do the commands. That should work. And I think the rpms are a better way to install giFT to a Mandrake system.
