No, that is not the error I meant. That is an error coming from you trying to compile something.

I want to know what the problem is that you are having installing giFT/Apollon with the rpm's by following the steps I gave you above. What is giving your problems there?

I realize that. But I DID give you directions above on how to setup Mandrake's installer to use RPMs to install giFT and Apollon.

Did you try to follow those directions or not?

Its better to install both programs with RPMs on your system, rather than tar.gz's.

I know that by now, I am asking you what went wrong when you were following those directions.

I am trying to help you install gift and Apollon via RPMs because that that method of installing things is better for an RPM-based system such as Mandrake like you are running.

So tell me which step was giving you trouble, we'll get past that, and then you can download gift and Apollon the way I am trying to get you to, and you won't have to worry about compiling them.
