BitchX and Fedora Core 3


This is my first post so.. hello all !

My problem goes like this: I`ve installed bx many many times, but this is the first time i`m installing it on fedora core 3. I followed the basic steps and this is what happens:

[nknwd@DevNull:~/BitchX]# make
cd source \
&& gmake 'local_dir=/home/nknwd' 'INSTALL_IRC=/usr/bin/BitchX' 'IRCLIB=/usr/lib/bx' 'CC=gcc' 'CFLAGS=-g -O2 -Wall' 'HELPDIR=/usr/lib/bx/help' 'INSTALL_WSERV=/usr/lib/bx/wserv' 'IRCPATH=~/.BitchX:~/.BitchX/plugins:.:/usr/lib/bx/plugins:/usr/lib/bx/script:/usr/lib/bx' 'TRANSLATION_PATH=/usr/lib/bx/translation' 'LDFLAGS=' 'LIBS=-lncurses -lm -lcrypt -lresolv' 'LN=ln -s' 'RM=rm -f' 'TCL_SRCS=' 'TCL_OBJS=' 'CD_PLAY=' 'CD_SRCS=' 'CD_OBJS=' 'TCL_LIBS=' 'PLUGINDIR=/usr/lib/bx/plugins' '_VERSION_=BitchX' 'VERSION=BitchX-1.1-final' 'INSTALL_DATA=/usr/bin/install -c -m 644' 'INSTALL_SCRIPT=/usr/lib/bx/script' 'EXEEXT=' 'SHLIB_CFLAGS=' 'SHLIB_SUFFIX=.so' all

You might try installing it from an rpm.

Arrow I WANT MAH CAKE!!@#$

Nice suggestion but *BUZZER*, doesnt work for me. The RPM gets nothing. It installs but BitchX won't run.

So the error goes away with Fedora Core 3 if you use the rpm of BitchX 1.1, but then again, BitchX 1.1 won't run. Nice trade-off.

http://www.fedoraforum.org/forum/arc...p/t-12419.html

You see, the problem seems to be Fedora Core 3 and now with Fedora Core 4, the problem is probably worse because Red Hat likes to change things around so they make Linux the Open Source O/S into a proprietory O/S like their mentor market genius hero, Microsoft.

All I want is to run BitchX. If I wanted to run something else I would be, but as my esteemed colleague stated with X-Chat-text I can still get text-based IRC sessions, blah, blah, blah. The thing is though that other people who have been using BitchX exclusively for years with other UNIX operating systems also would just like their BitchX console, or GTK version to work with Fedora Core 3. Now what's the fix many people say? I've been told by a great many to use a 'grown up' O/S like Slackware or FreeBSD and to forget the toyshop Fedora Project from Red Hat. The problem with that is that I *LIKE* Red Hat and Fedora Core and I want my cake doggoniT! I want mah bX!@@@@@@@

So... pretty soon I'm going to get awnry and hax0r the O/S until either it works or it's destroyed and I have to reinstall. If it comes to the latter, then I won't use FC to IRC anymore. Most likely I'll used Slackware or SuSE or Debian or ubuntu or Helix or knoppix or Yoper or FreeBSD or Mandrake or some other Open Source O/S that does work with BitchX, because I don like x-chat. So if anyone has an idea of how to rename things in term.c and ncurses.h, please let me know before I use the crowbar on my FC3!

ok?


Code:
./term.c:95: error: conflicting types for 'tparm'
./term.c:95: note: a parameter list with an ellipsis can't match an empty parameter name list declara tion
/usr/include/ncurses.h:717: error: previous declaration of 'tparm' was here

gmake[1]: *** [term.o] Error 1
gmake[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/BitchX/source'
gmake: *** [BitchX] Error 2
[root@localhost ~]# BitchX
bash: BitchX: command not found
[root@localhost ~]#
(Now.. if FedoraForum.org denies access to that URL I posted, I have copies for those who want to see it.

OR.... if suddenly the BitchX word goes to *****X for other people, I have the original. Apparently BitchX says "B I T C H" in the archives, but if you try to use the showthread link you'll see stars. Somewhere in their archives is the answer most likely. I couldn't find it using their search engine because you can't type bitch and get anything, nor bitchx. I found that URL with Google.com)

The Problem is not your Distro!
I get exactly the same output on Debian Mandriva and my own LFS!
I think theres something wrong with that term.o

The precompiles binary from BitchX page don't work too, but the rpm of Mandriva does. So i think we need another lib or something for compiling.
