Cant start NVU 0.5


Hi Guys
i have downloaded NVU 0.5 for my redhart 9 untar the product then I got a directory.
did not succeed in /configure , make , make install stuff
tried as the I have read in the forums typing ./nvu as root
I got the following result
[root@Ehab nvu-0.50]# ./nvu
*** global extensions startup!
[root@Ehab nvu-0.50]#

and as normal user
[hobz@Ehab nvu-0.50]$ ./nvu
./nvu: line 120: /root/Desktop/nvu-0.50/run-mozilla.sh: Permission denied
./nvu: line 120: exec: /root/Desktop/nvu-0.50/run-mozilla.sh: cannot execute: Permission denied

what directory did you get? did you get a mozilla directory? Did you download the source package? If you got source you got a directory named mozilla. You gointo that one and then cp mozconfig.linux .mozconfig
After doing this you run ./configure and it should configure w/o errors if you get errors then you need to find out why and fix that. Then you do your make. After make do cd ../nvu-0.5/dist/bin and then .nvu and it should work. If you got one of the packages, then you have to make sure you have thecorrectlibraries installed torun the package. If your still having problems you need to post the exact errors. Without these no one will be able to guess at your problem. It looks to me like you got to the right part but you unpacked as root and then tried to use it as a normal user. I would delete the directory and unpack again as a normal user.

did you unpack as root or user? You should unpack as user then run the nvu executable.

in the nvu directory do 'ldd nvu' and see if it says any libraries are missing. If there are then install those. Never mind that it is not going to work. Try renaming your .mozilla directory to see if that brings it up. Nvu uses that it may have something in it that is causing this.

you don't need any libraries, that was what was meant by not a dynamic executable. That is why I edited and said never mind that part. Do the second part of renaming you .mozilla folder and letting it create a new one.
