I'm having a problem with root-tail working under KDE3 in a freshly installed version of Redhat 8.0.
I installed the rpm version I could find from rpmfind.net and it seemed to compile fine. I'm running it from root given the suggested command of: root-tail -g 80x25+100+50 -shade /var/log/messages,green /var/log/secure,red,'ALERT'
Its listed in the process list and doesnt seem to be zombied although I have to kill -9 it to close it down but it just doesnt show up on the desktop as its supposed to.
I downloaded the latest version from: www.goof.com/pcg/marc/root-tail.html
who is now maintaining root-tail but Redhat 8.0 doesnt seem to ship with xmkmf which is needed to create the Makefile from the Imakefile that comes with the tar.gz from the above link.
a quick search for xmkmf on findrpm didnt turn out anything worth a shit... neither did a search on freshmeat.net
Does anyone know how to fix this little problem or of a fix not made available on the maintainers site?
