gxmame asks for GTK+2, which i HAVE (i think).


Hi,
I wanted to install a Frontend for xmame called gxmame for my Red Hat 9, but upon downloading and running the package, here's what happened.

-----
[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -i gxmame*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
gtk+2 >= 2.0.0 is needed by gxmame-0.34b-1
-----


So I downloaded atk, glib, gtk+2.2.4, and pango and put them in /Downloads/GTK2Intall/

-----
[root@localhost GTK2install]# ls
atk-1.2.4 glib-2.2.3 gtk+-2.2.4 pango-1.2.5
atk-1.2.4.tar.gz glib-2.2.3.tar.gz gtk+-2.2.4.tar.gz pango-1.2.5.tar.gz
-----


I went into the atk, then the glib, then the pango, then the gtk folder (in that order) and each one executed

-----
./config
make
make install
-----


Everything seemed to go well.
YEAH!!! I should have GTK+2.2.4 installed now... that will satisfy gxmame's hunger, right? WRONG!
Here's what I STILL get:

-----
[root@localhost Downloads]# rpm -i gxmame*.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
gtk+2 >= 2.0.0 is needed by gxmame-0.34b-1
-----


perhaps i need to add a --prefix or something to the "make install"

Greatly appreciate any comments, criticism, witticism, or advice!

Same problem here with Slackware 9.0. As I assume that you are using Redhat 9.0, the very best (and easiest way) to install gxmame (and mame itself) is using apt-get. Simple type:

apt-get install xmame
apt-get install gxmame

That's all you've to do. If you don't know what apt-get is/does, check out this thread:

http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...&highlight=mon

Where I explain the usage of apt-get.

Good luck and a happy new year!

thanks friend

Thanks... I definitely like this apt-get thing... It's kinda like Red Hat Network on drugs. Maybe now I won't be so hesitent to try another Distro like Slackware. I hear good things about Slackware.

Quick Question... I'm sure i could check to the documention, but I'm not very good at locating things in linux right now. I'm so used to C:\Program Files\(program or company)\<documentation> .

Anyhow... does apt-get clean up the packages after it installs? or maybe there is a command to do this?

Thanks again!

Adam

My pleasure Well, I don't think that rpm's actually create files during installation, because they are already pre-compiled. However, if you compile a program (those with ./configure, make && make install commands) from source, it's a good practice to use "make clean" after the installation .
