Installing GEDA.


OK, I have dowloaded the iso from the seul page, and Im trying to install it with "instaler.py", when I run it, I get the next log and I hit abort installation.

After the first time I run the installer, I have installed with YaST from DVD guile(guile-1.6.7-8.i586.rpm), wxGTK(wxGTK-2.6.1.0-4.i586.rpm), I can't find with YaST the package "wish" or "wx-config".


Here is the output now:

Quote:
Checking for various required programs . . .

which gcc
/usr/bin/gcc

which make
/usr/bin/make

which gtk-config
which: no gtk-config in (/opt/alliance-5.0/bin:/home/rea/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin)
gtk-config is missing on this machine.
We'll tell the user about that in a minute.

which pkg-config
/usr/bin/pkg-config
We need to install pkg-config on this machine. We'll do that in a minute.

find /usr/include /usr/local/include -name 'readline.h' -print | grep 'include/readline/readline.h'
/usr/include/readline/readline.h
readline.h found on this system. Great!

which guile-config
/usr/bin/guile-config
guile-config version 1.6.7 found.
guile-config version found on this system is good. Great!

which wx-config
which: no wx-config in (/opt/alliance-5.0/bin:/home/rea/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin)
We need to install wx-config on this machine. We'll do that in a minute.

which wish
which: no wish in (/opt/alliance-5.0/bin:/home/rea/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin)
We need to install wish on this machine. We'll do that in a minute.

I have checked in command line the commands:
Code:
Command-----------In my command Line------The installer
gtk-config-------------cmd not found-----------------Not finded
pkg-config-------------OK-----------------NOT DEFINED
guile-config-----------OK-----------------OK
wx-config--------------cmd Not found---------Not finded
wish-------------------cmd Not found---------Not finded

The problem here is that pkg-config is reached if I enter that in command line, why the installer "not see it"??? (I guess that is because is searching in absolute paths, instead of check the command in command line???).


By the way, I see that wish is "searched" also in /opt/alliance-5.0/bin I have installed Alliance before geda and by the way, was more easy, I only hit .configure->make->make install, and I see that was installed in /opt/alliance-5.0/ I have look inside such dir (new installation of Alliance) and havent found a file called wish... dont know what thing is searching this program... by the way.. it will try install Alliance??? (I have already installed it).






I dont know what to do, I have fear to crash my Linux installation (I have done that before with other distros, when entering to change KDE, drivers and things like that, for example not been able to enter again in graphic mode), I have installed wxGTK-2.6.1.0-4.i586.rpm with YaST from the DVD source, but aparently dosen't contain wx-config inside (dont know where to find it... and dont know if will be simple to install it), also dont know where to find wish.




The question is, I let that this programm install any that whant to be installed???? it will not unconfigure the things that I have already installed???





This is SuSe 10 DVD installation.

In SUSE, you need to install the respective devel-packages if you want to compile with these libraries.

I have go to YaST and click the item in menu that say some like
"install respective devel packages" (it have installed over 120Mb of devel pakages),
but the output is that there is still missing for example gtkconfig...

Code:
which gcc
   /usr/bin/gcc

which make
   /usr/bin/make

which gtk-config
   which: no gtk-config in (/opt/alliance-5.0/bin:/home/rea/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin)
gtk-config is missing on this machine.
We'll tell the user about that in a minute. 

which pkg-config
   /usr/bin/pkg-config
[COLOR=orange-red]We need to install pkg-config on this machine.  We'll do that in a minute.[/COLOR] 


find /usr/include /usr/local/include -name 'readline.h' -print | grep 'include/readline/readline.h'
   /usr/include/readline/readline.h
readline.h found on this system.  Great!

which guile-config
   /usr/bin/guile-config
guile-config version 1.6.7 found.
guile-config version found on this system is good.  Great!

which wx-config
   which: no wx-config in (/opt/alliance-5.0/bin:/home/rea/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/games:/opt/gnome/bin:/opt/kde3/bin:/usr/lib/jvm/jre/bin:/usr/lib/mit/bin:/usr/lib/mit/sbin)
We need to install wx-config on this machine.  We'll do that in a minute.

which wish
   /usr/bin/wish
tclsh version 8.4 found.
tclsh version found on this system is good.  Great!
See that pkg-config and wx-config are messages that say we need that tool installed
(a fatal error... tough it let you install it from the installer), diferent that gtk-config that is only
a warning and is not necesary only for 2 apps inside.





I have CHECKED again in the console, here is my tryies to run the commands:

Code:
Command-----------In my command Line------The installer
gtk-config-------------cmd not found-----------------Not finded (this is a warning)
[COLOR=orange-red]pkg-config-------------OK-----------------NOT DEFINED[/color](this is error)
guile-config-----------OK-----------------OK
wx-config--------------cmd Not found---------Not finded(this is error)
wish-------------------OK---------OK
Like I see pkg-config IS Already installed in my PC,
dont know why this installer "dont see it", but this tool is necesary not like gtk-config,
this installer try to install pkg-config question: if I let that the program install pkg-config,
it will overwrite my already installed pkg-config???
.



About gtk-config (I dont have this),
there is a Dialog that say me that I must install an old gtk-1.X specifically gtk-1.2 manually,
this GTK is for gerbv and GTKWave, also say that is posible to install geda without this programs.



I dont have wx-config and havent been installed hiting "installe devel packages" from YaST.





Questions:

1) I must download and install GTK-1.2?? it will cause errors if I have the GTK
version that come with SUSE 10 and I install manually the other one?

2) How I modify for installer.py, that instead of search in specific paths,
execute the command and see if is there?? (pkg-config IS ALREADY installed in this machine!"!!!!!!!).

3) wx-config... where is that????

On my system, gtk-config comes with gtk-devel and wx-config comes with wxGTK-devel (I didn't mean you should install all devel packages). I may be that you need versions that SUSE does not provide. This would make it quite complicated...I can't help here, sorry.

A yes, but anyway, that have solved some things (Graphviz thing)...

I have searched for gtk-devel and wx-devel, I haven't finded,
the only one that I have finded is gtk2-devel(and is installed)... like I see
in that gtk2-devel, gtk-config is not bundled, is only bundled pkg-config...


About wx-config, the search not find nothing related, aparently is only shipped wxGTK,
mean that I must search for wxGTK-devel in the web?????



Edit: I have finded the wxGTK-devel package of my version here
http://www.vislab.uq.edu.au/research...xWindows/RPMS/
installing it, for see if this work...
(dont know what this -devel dosent come in the DVD distro).

You may need to add online repositories to your installation sources. The downloadable DVD image does not contain all available packages. Have a look at the sticky thread about opensuse repositories.
