xchat - no GUI???


Ok, I am running Gentoo, and I have KDE, GNOME, and several other window managers installed. I emerged xchat, and for some reason it's not installing the GUI, the only xchat executable I get is xchat-text-2.

Thanks for the help,

Zak

make sure gtk2 is on your use flags. it isn't by default for xchat. try "emerge ufed" for a Use Flag EDitor.

I added gtk2 to my use flags, but the gui(/usr/bin/xchat) still didn't compile.

Thanks for the ufed, that's a really handy utility.

well xchat 2.0.x is on gtk2, xchat 1.8.x is gtk. if gtk2 is in the use flag for 2.0.x then it should work. normally called xchat-2 on gentoo, which i *think* is because of the slot thing in portage. when you emerge, check what flags are actually listed before the make starts

Ah... I scanned through the configure and found this...

checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.3... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.

Cannot find GTK! Not building GTK FrontEnd.

I'm going to try re-emerging GTK and see if that fixes the issue.

I got it working, I had to upgrade to the latest version of XFree86. I also had to drop the ATI drivers, and use the DRM drivers instead. It turns out that after upgrading to the latest version of XFree86, x-chat compiled with no problems, and gave me my gui.

Thanks for the help.
