compile problem - kopete-0.7.3


I'm getting the following errors at the end of 'make' when trying to install kopete-0.7.3

grep: /usr/lib/libfam.la: No such file or directory
sed: can't read /usr/lib/libfam.la: No such file or directory
libtool: link: `/usr/lib/libfam.la' is not a valid libtool archive
make[4]: *** [libkopeteui.la] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory '/usr/share/kopete-0.7.3/kopete/libkopete/ui'
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory '/usr/share/kopete-0.7.3/kopete/libkopete'
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory '/usr/share/kopete-0.7.3/kopete/'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory '/usr/share/kopete-0.7.3'
make: *** [all] Error 2

There seem to be a number of similar problems posted at www.kopete.org but no answer has appeared.

Can someone offer a solution to this please?

There is something wrong with libfam. Try installing or reinstalling the fam package, and perhaps fam-devel.

fam-2.6.9-5mdk is installed, but no fam-devel. I see there is a fam-2.6.10-7mdk available - can/should I upgrade to this version? The most recent fam-devel download I can find is fam-devel-2.6.4-6mdk - 2 years old.

"I see there is a fam-2.6.10-7mdk available - can/should I upgrade to this version?"

The fam and fam-devel version number should agree with each other. Also whatever packages you install should be compiled with a gcc version number the same or lower as the version number of your installed gcc. If the fam and fam-devel packages are compiled on a gcc version higher than your gcc version they may or may not work on your system. Check your gcc version with:

rpm -qi gcc | less

The way to tell what gcc version fam and fam-devel were compiled on is by the Mandrake release number. All Mandrake release 9.1 packages were compiled using the same version of gcc.

You're starting to lose me now - I'm still pretty new to Linux. The installed version is gcc-3.2.2-3mdk - so what do you suggest?

"You're starting to lose me now"

OK. I'll explain it differently. You need to have a fam and fam-devel which are compatible with each other and both packages need to be compatible with Mandrake 9.1.

"I see there is a fam-2.6.10-7mdk available - can/should I upgrade to this version?"

Yes. You need both fam and fam-devel packages with the same version number. Preferably both packages should be from the Mandrake 9.1 site.

All of the explanation about gcc versions is useful in determining if a package is suitable when the package is not labeled as being for Mandrake 9.1.
