Arrow libsigc++ install problem!


Hi,

I have a problem installing libsigc++, I need to install that to get Gabber to work, but after I installed it (and numerous times re-installing it), the gabber rpm and the other packages I have to install (gtkmm and gnomemm ), still keep telling me to install it?

I installed it just like other proggies and like said in the install-readme.
sh ./configure
<then a whole lot of stuff appears>
make
<more stuff>
make install
<not so much stuff>
and then it should be installed. (the readme says)

If anyone can help, plz do

Thx in advance

This is actually a common problem I believe. Installing a library isn't sufficient if you didn't make sure it got recognized by ldconfig. Here's the method:

#1 Find where on earth the library installed itself(/lib /usr/lib /usr/local/lib /usr/X11R6/lib etc)
#2 See if your 'make install' ran ldconfig at any point
#3 if #2 failed, make sure that the path you found in #1 is included in your /etc/ld.so.conf
#4 Run 'ldconfig' as root

Now try to compile. Imagine ldconfig as registering a DLL in windows. Generally windows would have to reboot to invoke this, but linux is friendly enough not to.

Hope this helps.

Sometimes you need to pass an option to configure when it reports a missing library that you know is installed, you do this with "./configure --with-#missing lib#=#path to missing lib#". Do "./configure -help" for more info.

Talking Thx dudes :)

Thx for the info guys, I got the libsigc++ to install properly, and also the other to. However, now the gabber-rpm tells me also to install libssl and libcrypto, I downed thos rpm's but again, they won't install either, because of some dependancies.

Guess the search continues

Thx

apt-get.....err, yeah, that's just a command that a GOOD package maintainer uses :P
