Gaim problem with gtkspell


when I installed Gaim, it always displayed
error: Failed dependencies:
libpspell-modules.so.1 is needed by gaim-0.64-1.i386
libpspell.so.4 is needed by gaim-0.64-1.i386

so I downloaded gtkspell-2.0.10 then do as follow
#./configure
#make
#make install

Then I installed Gaim again
But it is still the same

How should I do??

What platform?

Go on google and type in 'libpspell.so rpm' and download a package for your system. Just sounds like you have some missing files. Nothing that a good download can't fix. Just make sure that you have the right file.

Also, you could try going into terminal and doing: su (pass); yum install libpspell* OR yum install *aspell*

I think that pspell is what has the files you need. I am assuming that you can use yum. You may not be able to, although major systems seem to have it.

Thank you very much.
I did as you told that I typed" yum install libpspell* " in the terminal
but it displayed"No Match for argument libspell*
Nothing to do"
then I typed " yum install *aspell* "
It also displayed " No Match for argument aspell-0.60.2
No Match for argument aspell-0.60.2.tar.gz
Nothing to do"

I'm using FC3, could you give further introduction??

Hmm...

Sorry that didnt work out. I think I have an rpm you could try. I'd try it myself, but, well, I dont have the problem so I wouldnt know if it didnt work. Ok. Try this:

Download this file, its the big link across the top of the page. Then just double click to run/install it. Hopefully that'll work. If it doesn't, all I can suggest is that you do all your updates and hope that it fixes itself eventually. FC4 is coming out, so maybe you could switch to that. I probably will be. (Also, this probably doesn't matter, but I never had the problem with my FC, so maybe one of the settings got disabled accidentally. Look through the Gaim settings and see if it has something like a 'spellcheck' check box.)

Anyways, the link: http://rpmfind.net/linux/RPM/fedora/....fc3.i386.html
