Unhappy xFig Wont install on Fedora RHEL or Oracle Linux


Hi everybody!
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
OR
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.
Stop.


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.

Regards
Amp.

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'.

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
7-8 http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...inux/releases/
1-6 http://archives.fedoraproject.org/pu...ra/linux/core/
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.
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5.3/os/SRPMS/
Just not possible with the source code alone.
