make errors trying to install gnome-libs


I'm trying to install gnome-libs, since I'm getting this error when running configure, trying to install grip:

checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install


And I am getting some make errors compiling gnome-libs that are just bizarre. I am trying to compile the source for version 1.2.9, since that is the latest I found anywhere. The make errors are here.

On a side note, why the hell is gnome-libs not included with slack? I have ALL the gnome packages installed.

Not sure about the errors, but did you do a custom install and miss them? Because I've got gnomelibs coming out my ears. And it's not in a .tgz on your CDs?

Here are all the gnome-* packages on the Slack 9.0 disc.

gnome-applets-2.2.0-i386-1.tgz gnome-session-2.2.0.2-i386-1.tgz
gnome-audio-1.4.0-noarch-1.tgz gnome-system-monitor-2.0.4-i386-1.tgz
gnome-desktop-2.2.0.1-i386-1.tgz gnome-terminal-2.2.1-i386-1.tgz
gnome-extra-themes-1.0.1-noarch-1.tgz gnome-themes-2.2-i386-1.tgz
gnome-games-2.2.0-i386-2.tgz
gnome-utils-2.2.0.3-i386-1.tgz
gnome-icon-theme-1.0.0-noarch-1.tgz
gnome-vfs-2.2.2-i386-1.tgz
gnome-media-2.2.1.1-i386-1.tgz gnome2-user-docs-2.0.6-noarch-1.tgz
gnome-mime-data-2.2.0-noarch-1.tgz
gnomeicu-0.99-i386-1.tgz
gnome-panel-2.2.0.1-i386-1.tgz


And yes, I did a custom install. I'm pretty sure I have all the gnome packages installed though. Did they hide gnome-libs somewhere in Slack 9, in another package?

Hm. My mistake, maybe. It's specifically 'gnome-libs'? I don't seem to have that either. I've got lots of gnome-this and that and lots of libgnome this and that, including libgnome-2.2.0.1 but I don't see a 'gnome-lib'.

What did you need it for? I don't really run Gnome but I probably run some apps that need Gnome libraries and never noticed anything missing.

well like I said I was trying to compile grip. Maybe since it was a gnome 1.4 app I need to install gnome-libs 1.4, instead of 1.2.9 (duh)? I found it on the Slack 8.1 mirrors.

Saw your last post.

Looks like you're missing

gnome-session
gnome-system-monitor
gnome-terminal
gnome-themes
gnome2-user-docs

but I don't think it's in there. I didn't find a gnomeConf.sh file either, though I do have a gnome-config.h - weird.

-- Oh, I just saw your *latest* reply in my reply screen. Glad you found the stuff.

-- Duh. Never mind - I was reading that as a single column list. Looks like you got it all.

It looks like it worked, I got past that error in the configure script. Now I am missing something else, lol, but it should be easy to find. I'll post back here if I have anymore problems, but I doubt I will.

Thanks.

Well, you're welcome, but I didn't *do* anything. Glad it's working out. I have had better luck with adding to the system with Slack than with any other distro.

Yes, you need the gnome libs (v1.xx) from Slackware 8.1.

You can find them either on the CD-ROMs of Slack 8.1 or through the Internet mirrors.

Here are some more information (I had the same problems a while ago, with a different app):

Hope this helps!

Yep, installed the package from the Slack 8.1 mirror, and I got grip to compile and run.
