Unhappy Problem with karamba


`Hi there,

Im a relative newbie to linux and i am having a problem trying to install Karamba.

This is the error i am receaving:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpng
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [karamba] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/BU5T4/software_downloads/karamba-0.17/src'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/BU5T4/software_downloads/karamba-0.17/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/BU5T4/software_downloads/karamba-0.17'
make: *** [all] Error 2

I haved tryed on google but cant find much help. Some website mentioned it could be a X11-devel problem but i tryed to download this but i cant find it anywhere rpmfind.net, google, and even synaptic but i am totally stuck.

Does anyone know what im doing wrong?

Oh yeah i am using redhat 8.0 and running the karamba compile (dont know if thats the right temanology) with this command wich i found on the karamba web site : ./configure --prefix=/usr && make

Any help would be greatly apprciated.

Cheers

Compiler messages are oh so helpful, aren't they? I think it's looking for the libraries for libpng (that's what the 'lpng' means). See if you can find a package to install called 'libpng' and/or 'libpng-devel', then try compiling again.

Yep, looks like it worked for you that time. Usually, unless there are warnings/errors, you can assume that everything went OK. Glad I could be of assistance
