Unhappy problem compiling ettercap0.6b

Hi all,

I`m new to Linux and have a problem compiling ettercap0.6b on Mandrake 9.1.
I ran configure and had massive dependencie problems bit after I had installed all missing devel packages configure ran without errors. Now make crashes with following error message:

[root@mandrakebox ettercap-0.6.b]# make
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgtk-x11-2.0
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make: *** [ettercap] Fehler 1

Is this a linking problem? I think I have the required libs..
[root@mandrakebox ettercap-0.6.b]# ldconfig -p | grep gtk-x11 (libc6) => /usr/lib/

there is no libgtk-x11-2.0 but I thought it was part of the gtk-2.0_0mdk rpm..

[root@mandrakebox ettercap-0.6.b]# rpm -qa | grep libgtk

Or am I simply miss a different devel package or must I advise a different dynamic link?
I will be gled for any help... :-)

Move over to Debian., Mandrake = slow and anoying (windows like) for me, but u may like it.

On debian I did
apt-get install ethercap
and it grabbed the latest files off the net, installed them and configured them for me an 43 seconds.

If you still wanna try is you friend. place parts of that error in there, you should find something, also ethercap-gtk is seperate package, may need to get that.

Good luck
Sorry I wasnt very helpful
