Installing pango with cairo support, so pangocairo is available
My Distro is RHEL4 .
I am trying to install pango-1.28.1 with cairo support. I have already installed cairo-1.8.10, fontconfig-2.4.2 and freetype-2.4.2.
These installation were done without giving any additional parameter with ./configure
All are installed from Desktop folder.
On doing a make check for cairo, the report says that 121 of 200 tests failed.
Then i do a make install.
While doing ./configure for pango the following message is displayed:
checking for CAIRO... yes
checking which cairo font backends could be used... none
configure: Disabling cairo support
checking for GLIB... yes
checking for LIBTHAI... no
As pango is not installing with cairo support so i do not have a pangocairo file required be most recent browsers. Which is blocking me from upgrading to latest browser.
i installed the following packages:
all were installed with
I installed all these packages from centOS.
After installing all these packages, i downloaded a rpm for installing firefox.
The rpm package did not install, it said that libnssutil3.so, nss nspr are missing packages.
I downloaded nss and nspr RPMs also from centOS but they also did not install, failed due to package dependency.
Kindly suggest the way forward.
I have set the path in .bashrc as follows:
[root@localhost firefox]# echo $PATH
On running the updater script that is provided in the tarball download, there is an error saying
[root@localhost firefox]# ./updater
./updater: error while loading shared libraries: libpangocairo-1.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
Why is it not able to locate the library when there is a path available for it.
I am doin these operations as a root user, have also tried these as local user.
When i'm doing a "rpm -q mozilla-nspr"
But when i try to install nspr with "nspr-4.7.1-1.el4.i386.rpm", also downloaded from centOS.
It says that following packages can not be found:
I am not sure, why, if the mozilla-nspr package is already installed, the rpm is not able to find it.
Also when i tried to upgrade with another older version of mozilla-nspr, there was a message saying that a newer version of it is already installed.
I'm consolidating the solution to the problem i was facing:
As i do not have support for RHEL, so downloaded and installed RPMs
