Unable to install pidgin, gtk, glib or their dependencies
I am a newbie, and have been using Linux for a couple of weeks now. For some reason GAIM does not seem to work any more. I use Mandriva 2006.
So I went to install pidgin, where it said that it needed gtk. In turn I need glib and pango and all the associated, like cairo,atk,etc.
For each of the above I downloaded the tar, extracted it to my desktop and tried
$ ./make install
I did log in as root.
But it is not working. No detailed help is also available.
One kind of error I get, about
"nothing to do about install-am"
type, can anyone please tell me what in the heaven's name that could mean?
I will be glad if you can help me with this.
