Question Eterm and RH9?

I can't get Eterm to work with RH9.
It keeps asking for dependencies...
Being that this RH9 box doesn't have a internet connection and so I'm unable to use the apt-get program. I started to download the dependencies on my own. I was doing well untill I came across libltdl which is a dependencie for libast. All I need is the libltdl and I believe that I can get Eterm to work.
If anyone knows where the file is or has it, or has goten Eterm to work on there RH9 system please let me know how. Thanks

Try compiling it. Get this file:

Then uncompress it:

gunzip Eterm-0.9.2.tar.gz

Then untar it:

tar -xvf Eterm-0.9.2.tar

Then go into the new created folder:

cd Eterm-0.9.2

Them compile it:



Then turn into root with su and proceed:

make install

P.S: I've not read the documentation. I'm just guessing an ordinary install process. You should though if you really want to install it. If the installation/compiling fails, you could still try installing the packages or by "forcing" the rpm to install (forcing won't check for dependancies), but it's not recommended. The easiest is always to google for another terminal though .

Good luck
