LEX failed during compiling GIMP, MDK 9.2
 
Hi!
I gave this a runthough, trying to get the new version of GIMP-print (via Sourceforge - you guys rule!) to compile and it gave me this gumph at the end...

Any idears? I'm a sad newbie in Linux World here, but I can't figure why it's freaking out. I also can't find lex anywheres in me PC when I look for it (via searches, not just 'looking' through directories, of course!).
Heeelllpp!!

Looks like you were ruut. Good.

flex = lex. No problem.

Try installing flex (Redhat build).

ftp://at.rpmfind.net/linux/fedora/co...-31.1.i386.rpm


Or, build it yourself.

ftp://ftp.gnu.org/non-gnu/flex/
ftp://ftp.gnu.org/non-gnu/flex/flex-2.5.4a.tar.gz

Then try building Gimp again.
