xFig Wont install on Fedora RHEL or Oracle Linux
I have this really typical difficulty that iu want to install xFig package for Imaging on my linux machine (I uased all the three Fedora, RHEL, Oracle Linux). I downloaded the xfig tar.gz file from xfig.org. But when i read the instructions i found that i have to build the make file myself. This could have been achieved by any of these methods:
1) By xmkmf Imakefile
2)make -f Makefile.noimake Makefile
But in both the cases the make file could not be created.
It returned me an error, when i use xmkmf, that
cc1: error: Imakefile/config/cf: Not a directory
imake: Exit code 1.
and when i use "make -f Makefile.noimake Makefile"
make: Makefile.noimake: No such file or directory
make: *** No rule to make target `Makefile.noimake'. Stop.
Now can anybody help me on how to create this make file or how can i install xfig.
Probably not impossible, but hardly worth the effort.
This is the most easy :
# yum -y install xfig
which will install xfig and the dependency transfig.
If no yum, there are packages : http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3
> > Search > "Advanced Search" , keyword = xfig-3
... for all Fedora's and RH EL 4, EL 5,
including 'src.rpm's to create rpm with 'rpmbuild'.
Thanx for your concern, but i couldnt open the url u had send from where i could have got the xfig rpm and depencies "http://rpm.pbone.net/".
Can you please help me by sending some other link so that i can follow your instructions.
what VERSION of fedora ?????
only fedora 10,11,and 12 beta are supported.
if an older and unsupported version of fedora then the " yum " updater WILL NOT WORK .Because the software repos have been MOVED to the fedora archives. ( the web address has changed)
also for the error above
Do you have Imake installed . It is a build system like cmake and the gnu gcc or qmake
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3 , rpm pbone
has been down several times, the last 6 days.
The Fedora archives
EL 4-5 http://mirror.centos.org/centos/
As said in # 2 : Probably not impossible to build xfig,
the src.rpm with the ten patches is available, e.g.
Just not possible with the source code alone.
