Question gnucash install on slackware 8.1


I have been trying to installed gnucash on Slackware 8.1, and its turning out to be a real pain. There seem to only be two packages I need on top of gnome: slib (scheme library) and g-wrap library (which requires slib). slib seems to require to scheme to be installed, but I can't seem to find it. Does anyone have slib, g-wrap, or better yet, the gnucash totally working in Slackware? I'd prefer a HOWTO type step-by-step install instructions over precompiled packages, so I could build my own package of the new version when it comes out.

Yes
I am using a full install of Slackware 8.1.01
and have been using GnuCash 1.6.8 for several weeks
No step by step other than following the instructions in
INSTALL file
./configure
make
make check
make install (I use checkinstall instead)

I have been using protopkg, which I believe is similar to checkinstall. How did you get slib installed? That's my current hangup. I ended up snagging the RPM and doing rpm2tgz.

I am at work so I don't have the details but:
I believe I got slib.tgz from
linuxpackages.net
and did a standard installpkg

P.S. I used the slib.tgz version for 8.0 with no problems

I tried snagging the slib and g-wrap from linuxpackages. Tried installing gnucash from source, but ./configure gave the following error:

checking for g-wrap - 1.1.11 <= version < 1.3.0... no
configure: warning: gwrap check failed
configure: error:

g-wrap does not appear to be installed correctly, or is not in the
correct version range. Right now gnucash requires at least version
1.1.11 to build, but does not work with 1.3 or greater.
If you need to install g-wrap, you can find it at
http://www.gnucash.org/pub/g-wrap.


Sure enough, g-wrap was 1.3.1. Is there an older Slackware package of g-wrap available? Any special flags I need to pass ./configure to get gnucash to work?

g-wrap

Older versions of g-wrap are available at
linas.org/pub/gnucash/g-wrap/source

there wasn't and options needed to compile gnucash
