Can't install any applications


I havent' been able to get any application to install correctly yet. rpms haven't worked, tar.gz files haven't worked. There's been some error in making every single thing I've tried so far. I've posted about it in a few different places, but so far I haven't gotten any kind of answer. It's really kinda frustrating.

One of the most frustrating ones is this:
Code:
[root@localhost netmage-0.6.7]# make
[ -d ./classes/ ] || mkdir ./classes
cp -r images/ ./classes/
cp cards.dat ./classes/
cp README.txt ./classes/
cp COPYING ./classes/
javac CardHolder.java -d ./classes
Can't load library "/usr/local/jdk1.2.2/jre/lib/i386/libjava.so", because /usr/local/jdk1.2.2/jre/lib/i386/libjava.so: symbol __libc_wait, version GLIBC_2.0 not defined in file libc.so.6 with link time reference
Could not create the Java virtual machine.
make: *** [CardHolder.class] Error 1
No one's given me any kind of answer about what may be causing this.

Here's another:
Code:
[root@localhost mindless-1.4]# make
gcc -Wall -g `pkg-config gtk+-2.0 --cflags` -c mindless.c
/bin/sh: pkg-config: command not found
/bin/sh: gcc: command not found
make: *** [mindless.o] Error 127
I'm really at a loss for what to do. Any kind of help or advice or anything would be great.

1. What is your distribution?
2. You don't have developmental packages installed (gcc: command not found, gcc = gnu c compiler), so you will have to install that before you can use source code.

I have Linux installed, now how do I work some stuff like some software and file managers?

I've got Fedora core 3. I'll flip through those links and try to find something. Thanks.

I ended up getting a corrupt file error while extracting gcc.

Delete the tarball/rpm/whatever you downloaded, then (as root) try:

yum install gcc

I did what it said to put in the yum.conf file, and I got this:
Quote:
Setting up Install Process
Setting up Repo: livna-stable
http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/3/i386/y...ta/repomd.xml: [Errno 4] IOError: <urlopen error (110, 'Connection timed out')>
Trying other mirror.
Cannot open/read repomd.xml file for repository: livna-stable
failure: repodata/repomd.xml from livna-stable: [Errno 256] No more mirrors to try.

I get a 404 for that as well. I kept backing up in the web browser until I found a yum directory. Try replacing that one url with this and see if it works:

http://rpm.livna.org/fedora/3/i386/yum/stable/

You could also try un-commenting (remove the preceeding #) some of the other repositories as I see some of the yum stuff has been removed from the ftp area and they suggest using some of the Red Hat mirrors in the README.

Also, report to the tips and tricks webmaster your results.

It might also be a good idea to subscribe to the fedora-list -- For users of Fedora Core releases

Where do I put that URL? In the yum.conf file, there's a line that says livna-stable, do I replace the url there with that one?

You weren't very specific in telling what you just did (we can't read minds, much less than we can the text posted, at least).

Did you run up2date right after install (the blinking icon on the right side of the panel, IIRC, right after your install?

Did you try uncommenting other repositories?
