Another error during configuration
 
Hi,
I was trying to install "fontconfig-2.2.0" and it gives me the following error during running "./configure":

configure: error: cannot find expat library

Does anybody know what it means and how to handle this?

You need the expat library :)

If you're using debian:
apt-get install libexpat1-dev

well.... but what is the exapt library?
:confused: i can`t find something like that...
and i`m using mandrake 9.2 beta 2...

Try downloading ftp://ftp.rpmfind.net/linux/Mandrake...-4mdk.i586.rpm

And then
rpm -i expat-1.95.6-4mdk.i586.rpm

as root, just run "urpmi libexpat1-devel" or something to that effect.

Expat is some sort of library you need to compile your application. ;)
