problem compiling ksubeditor


Hi!
I'm trying to compile ksubeditor (it is, as its name suggests, a editor of subtitles under KDE)
I do
'./configure'
and it seems to work fine, but after I do
'make'
I get
...
libtool: link: cannot find the library `/usr/lib/libfam.la'
make[2]: *** [ksubeditor] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/ksubeditor-0.2rc1/ksubeditor'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/ksubeditor-0.2rc1'
make: *** [all] Error 2

and exits.

What can I do to compile this program?

Regards

in a console, type in whereis libfam.la
if it just returns "libfam.la:" then you don't have it on your system.

Go to RPMFind and search for the file, download the relevant file for your system and make sure it is in /usr/lib

Then reinstall ksubeditor.

I (over!)use it all the time - it's a great quick and dirty way to find files.

Did you need to download the file or was it there all along?

Glad to hear it worked.

No, I didn't need to download any file.
I did

whereis libfam.la

and I got

libfam.la:

but I looked for the file in the disks of my distribution, and I found it.
Before you answered me, I was a bit lost because I had tried to find the file using

find -name libfam.*

and I had found a couple of files fitting this pattern, but none of them was the one I needed. Then I thought I had installed the library and I didn't understand what was going on.
But, as I tell you, I instaled the package (the one I found in my distro containing that file), and all is ok now
Thank you, again. I feel now less

Best regards
