Trying to install pango...


Toward the end of ./configure or make not sure which... I get this after what was a long out put of successfull checking...

configure: WARNING: X development libraries not found
checking for freetype-config... no

configure: error: *** Didn't find any of FreeType, X11, or Win32.
*** Must have at least one backend to build Pango.
[psyklops@platform00 pango-1.2.0]$

Can someone sort of break this down for me? Point me in the direction of where I need to go from here?

Geez, all of these packages for xmms...

Er, wait. Why are you trying to install Pango? Red Hat 9 already comes with it installed and set up, hell the person who wrote Pango works for Red Hat.

I think you took a wrong turning somewhere.....

Im trying to get xmms to work because noatun isnt.

I just checked and it seems pango and atk are both installed. Dont know how pango could be considering the errors I had in my first post but I aint gonna look the gift horse in the mouth.

So I tried to install xmms but it says glib wasnt installed

checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

So I slocate glib

.../usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0.200.1
/usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/components/imglib2.xpt
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/components/libimglib2.so
/usr/share/doc/glibc-common-2.3.2
/usr/share/doc/glibc-common-2.3.2/ChangeLog.threads.gz
/usr/share/doc/glibc-common-2.3.2/ChangeLog.1.gz
/usr/share/doc/glibc-common-2.3.2/ChangeLog.10.gz
/usr/share/doc/glibc-common-2.3.2/ChangeLog.11.gz...

This is only part of what I found, obviously.
Here's the part showing glib-1.2.10... Whereas in the error above it said I need v 1.2.2 so I should be good here. Though it almost looks as if glib-1.2.10 wasnt ./configure, make, make install etc... But I dont see how that could be... It should have been done when I was installing. Though I choose not to install the gnome packages. glib = gnome library. Is that my problem?

Dude - your profile says you have Red Hat 9 - XMMS is already installed and the default! Try running xmms from a terminal window, see what happens.

...I feel really small right now...

...but it does say that RH removed support for mp3 because of licensing... Wtf good is it then...? Its not even supporting shoutcast... Its like me without my other eye...

...maybe I can find a plugin for mp3?

Heh, don't worry. If you're in KDE (why? it's not the default on redhat) then they don't exactly make it easy for you to find XMMS, they want you to use Noatun - problem is that as you found out, Noatun blows donkey nuts, so nobody uses it.

Yes, MP3 was pulled - contrary to popular belief, you have to pay to use it. Microsoft pay for you, as do AOL if you use WinAmp.

Regardless, that's one rule nobody pays any attention to whatsoever. But Red Hat are big, and have money (relative to other linux vendors) so they might get sued.

So here's how to get it back. Go to http://apt.freshrpms.net/ and install apt for red hat 9. This is a very useful program that will automatically download programs for you. Install it, use "su" to switch to root, and type:

apt-get update
apt-get install xmms-mp3

Now restart XMMS, and it should work.

Dude you rock!! I listening to live streaming muzac now! Learn something new everyday. I think Ill stick with the apt prog for awhile till I figure out this linux stuff.

Do you use an apt like feture on slackware?

And isnt apt like the redhat update package manager, just under a different name? If I am right, do you know the differences?

Many thanks!

I don't use Slack, not sure why you think that. I use RH9 also.

Yes, apt is like up2date, in fact in the next version of Red Hat they are merged, and it will come set up out-the-box.

There are programs like apt for most major distros, but not Slack. If you use Slackware you're expected to enjoy resolving dependencies
