(i'm running Mandrake 9.1, very fresh (installed yesterday )
I'm trying to install giFTcurs - http://www.nongnu.org/giftcurs/ and although i'm able to unzip it, and get to config, i can't "make" since it says that glib is required. what is glib? do i have it, should i install it? thanks for any help,
also can someone guide me through installing giFT?
i'm still struggling. how do i install glib?? ./install? i can't find any resources on how to do installs... are they standardized? and how do i find out if it's installed correctly or not? i could really use some help.
okay... i've been able to install giFT, openFT, but glib is still giving me lots of problems
i'll "make install" it and it appears to go through, but when i try to configure giFTcurs it always says that glib isn't there.
this might be the problem but i'm not sure how to fix it- in the install directions it has:
Simple install procedure
% gzip -cd glib-2.2.3.tar.gz | tar xvf - # unpack the sources
% cd glib-2.2.3 # change to the toplevel directory
% ./configure # run the `configure' script
% make # build GLIB
[ Become root if necessary ]
% rm -rf /install-prefix/include/glib.h /install-prefix/include/gmodule.h
% make install # install GLIB
i haven't done % rm -rf /install-prefix/include/glib.h /install-prefix/include/gmodule.h and i'm not sure how to set it up (what to put as install-prefix) or what it does... do i need to specify a location for glib to go?
i ran into the same problem as whoistom.
I had glib installed but it does not provide everything you need .
Went back through my mdk 9.1 power pack cds and installed all the gnome development stuff and everything works fine.The only problem i have with it is searches for movies dont seem to work as good as searches for mp3.
ok... now giFTcurs is installed... the only problem is that giFT is not... when i try to install gift it goes through fine, but then i run giftcurs and nothing happens. is there a way to start giFT? typing "gift" into the console doesn't work.
