wx-config problem strange problem plz help
 
i was unable to compile the source the system crashed asking for wx-config file, what is it ?

extern size_t iconv (iconv_t cd, char * *inbuf, size_t *inbytesleft, char * *outbuf, size_t *outbytesleft);
checking for nl_langinfo and CODESET... yes
checking for LC_MESSAGES... yes
checking for bison... no
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking whether included gettext is requested... no
checking for GNU gettext in libc... yes
checking for wx-config... no
configure: error:
Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
where wxWindows libraries are installed (returned by
'wx-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
equivalent variable and wxWindows is version 2.4.0 or above.
Or this might also be a bug in our configure. Please try again
with --with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config
(replace /usr/bin/wx-config with a valid path to your wx-config)


any ideas? what the hell is wx-config anyway

wx-config is a helper script that comes with wxWindows (www.wxwindows.org). You won't have it if you don't have wxWindows installed.

The program you're trying to compile needs to link with wxWindows.

do you know where can i download wxwindows ?

Download it by going to www.wxwindows.org and clicking on Download. You'll see a multitude of things to download.

You probably want Unix/GTK+ version 2.4.1 stable.

Incidentally, it was the configuration script which terminated with an error.

The system did not crash -- that is what would have happened had you been using Windoze.

When you use Linux, you must learn to decribe your problems in a more accurate manner.
