Packages in FC2


Hi.
I'm trying to install bluefish .13 on my computer. It says it needs gtk+-2.2 for it. I went to their website, and it says it needs glib, and couple other packages. Before I go and install all of that. Does FC2 has those packages on the CD? I used to use Mandrake and it came with nifgy program that you could use to see which packages you have installed, and which ones are available. I seriously doubt something like this exists in FC2. Is there at least a command line program that does it?
Thx.

Ah, I looked under gnome devel. package and found some references to GTK and glib. It didn't say what version it is.

its better to use a package manager like apt to let it automatically resolve the dependancies

e.g. in apt all u have to do is type : apt-get install bluefish
it will then check its dependacies and install any one u dont have like glib , gtk

and there is a gui program for it called synaptic

Synaptic-0.53
checking for xmlto... no
configure: error: You need xmlto to build the documentation. Apt-get it or download it from http://cyberelk.net/tim/xmlto
xmlto-0.0.18
when I run make:
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity http://docbook.sourceforge.net/relea...es/docbook.xsl
warning: failed to load external entity "http://docbook.sourceforge.net/release/xsl/current/manpages/docbook.xsl"
compilation error: file /tmp/xmlto-xsl.R13869 line 4 element import

Q: I'm trying to build xmlto on my Debian box, but it doesn't work.

A: If you get `Attempt to load network entity' errors when building
xmlto, your system does not have the required support for XML
Catalogs
(http://www.oasis-open.org/committees...001-08-06.html).
In particular, Debian has no support for these. Try the Fedora
Project <http://fedora.redhat.com>.
make[1]: *** [man/man1/xmlto.1] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/umneydurak/xmlto-0.0.18'
make: *** [all] Error 2
Looked in to fedora website, but I'm not sure what I'm suppose to be looking for.

Ok. Now I'm getting this error message when installing syaptic
"checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.0.0, libglade-2.0 >= 2.0.0, pango >= 1.0.0, glib-2.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found"
When I try to install gtk+-2.2.4 I get this:
"checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found"
But I have glib installed. I installed glib-2.2.3 did ./configure, make, make install with no problems.
What gives?

hi
why don't u install rpms from ur CD of the distribution(glib is there in fedora 2)
they install the files in the standard location

now u will have to see where is gtk installed,most probably in /usr/local/lib
so add the /usr/local/lib to the file
/etc/ld.so.conf

run ldconfig

or install packages from the distro's CD

Sorry I forgot to mention. When I tried to install Gnome dev. packages it said it couldn't do it because xorg-x11-libs are not installed. Even thought those libs are installed.

the best option for u is to go to
add remove appp. and install packages from there
that will take care of dependencies in ur packages

Yeah, thats what I tried to do. Thats when that error message is pops up.
Anyway I think I hosed the installation.
I added /usr/loclal/lib to the ld.so.conf file
then run ./ldconfig in /sbin. Now it hangs during boot. It boots fine till it hits login screen, but it doesn't get thee. It stops at black screen with an x cursor.
EDIT: Never mind booting with resuce disk removing /usr/local/bin and running ldconfig fixed it.

Anyway let me elaborate. I tried installing GNOME Software Development packages which contain the gtk+, I think, using the Add/Remove Applications program. And it gives me an error message Packages not Found: xorg-x11-libs.
I did rpm -qa|grep xorg-x11-libs, and I do have those packages insalled, so I don't know that a heck it's talking about.
Also I did try yum install and it said the same thing that xorg-x11-libs is installed.
