where's gnome-config?


i just installed slack9.0
and i'm compiling galeon..

locate gnome-config returns
/usr/share/gtk-doc/html/libgnome/libgnome-gnome-config.html
/usr/include/libgnome-2.0/libgnome/gnome-config.h


checking if NautilusView Galeon component is wanted... no
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for GNOME - version >= 1.2.8... no
*** The gnome-config script installed by GNOME could not be found
*** If GNOME was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GNOME_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gnome-config.
configure: error:
*** GNOME 1.2.8 or better is required.
*** gdk-pixbuf 0.14.0 or better is required.
*** gnome-vfs 1.0.1 or better is required.
*** libglade 0.13 or better is required.
*** libxml 1.8.14 or better is required.
*** oaf 0.6.5 or better is required.
[root@beautifulmind galeon-1.2.8]$

thanks in advance

well it will be in the gnome-devel pakage normally, no idea wether this is a seperate package for slack or not, is for any RPM based distro. have you tried galeon 1.3 though? uses gnome 2 not 1.4

yeah i wish i could go back
actually i tried, but it takes loads of low version library
so i was afraid to mess up system and stopped..

1.3.3 seems also slower than 1.2.8

I am assuming the new Gnome doesn't use gnome-config cause when I try to install enlightenment from source it uses gnome-config to get the menu entries I believe, for the gnome section, and theres never anything in there and if you look for an error message is says it can't find gnome-config...

JoooN , i found gnome-config in one of slack 8.1 packages
u can find what packages have it by looking at MANIFEST file
(the file is on any slack mirror)
