Angry Having trouble with K3B make

I am trying to *make* k3b
I apologise in advance for the bizarre
way in which the code is displaying... i just copy pasted from terminal?
The ./configure step appears to go OK but make results in:
T_CLEAN_NAMESPACE -DQT_NO_ASCII_CAST -DQT_NO_STL -DQT_NO_COMPAT -DQT_NO_TRANSLAT                                                                                                  ION    -o -rpath /opt/kde/lib -L/opt/kde/lib -L/usr/lib/qt/lib -                                                                                                  L/usr/X11/lib    -version-info 2:0:0 -no-undefined -Wl,--no-undefined -Wl,--allo                                                                                                  w-shlib-undefined k3bdevice.lo k3bscsicommand.lo k3btrack.lo k3btoc.lo k3bdevice                                                                                                  manager.lo k3bmsf.lo k3bdiskinfo.lo k3bdeviceglobals.lo k3bcrc.lo k3bcdtext.lo -                                                                                                  lkio

Slackware 10.1

and I haven't got a clue what this is about.

I would appreciate anyone throwing some light on
1)what has one wrong... I am having trouble googling any useful (to my newbieness) information , and
2)how can I correct the issue.

Thanks in advance

it seems to be complaining about not sure what that is but try google for a libfontconfig src package and install it.

I had the sameish problem getting K3B to compile on RedHat 9. Only it was complaining on my machine about


in the exact same way it complains to you about your missing library. I checked and then found that I -DID- in fact have the -DYNAMIC- library. So what I did was to symlink
libart_lgpl_2.a to and restart the K3B make, after which K3B compiled and
now works prefectly on my Rh9 system.

What I suggest is that ou check your library directories (erm... /usr/lib and /usr/local/lib ? dunno) for the file that K3B's make complains about. Check if you do not in fact actually -have- that library, but maybe in its dynamic form. If you find a library with a similar name, try symlinking it to the name that K3B make complains about.

To find out how to symlink (i. e. link one filename to another so that if the symbolic one is called, the "actual" file is referencd) type man ln in an Xterm, or post here again.

What a tricky afternoon of reading / searching / and FINALLY downloading the correct package to allow me to install K3B

I actually needed:

fontconfig-2.2.1-i486-1.Firefly.tgz from


I also installed the devel package

I have not tested k3b yet but i have it MADE and INSTALLED WOOOOHOOOO (or should that be... errr... Maked ? hehe)

Big Thankyou to all who replied
