GNUcash installation nightmare!


I'm trying to install GNUcash on Mndrake 9.1. I downloaded the gnucash-1.6.5-1mdk.i586.rpm and tried install it. I had a zillion dependencies that I downloaded from the GNUcash site and after having installed half of the zillion dependencies, I was then told that one of the new dependencies I was installing clashed with an old one!

Getting even more bored now, I found there was this big file on the GNUcash site:

gnucash-1.6.5-1mdk.src.rpm

This actually installed all of the packages. Great. However, I'm buggered if I can find *where* it's installed the program! Has it actually installed it? Do I need to install something else too?

Has anyone actually got this program going?!

src = source, that package is just the source code, which should now be in /usr/src/RPMS/SRC/gnucash or something, but i'd advise you just removed it and found a package without src in it, i586, i686 or i386 instead

Yeah, I originally tried the RPM without source in it but it has all those dependencies that I couldn't find.

Such as libguile.so.9 for example.

It's only available from Mandrake Club by the looks of it. (Which is a pay site.)

Yes, that's right there are. As I said, they direct you to the Mandrake Club site which it won't let me have access to because I'm not a member and you have to pay to be a member.

Hmmmmph. After much surfing around I read that it comes with most distys. Sure enough, there it was on the RPM list under control centre. Installed a dream.
