gkrellm


Hi there!
I'd like to install gkrellm because I heard that it's a cool program, but the problem is that when I try to load it it gives out an error:

gkrellm: error while loading shared libraries: libgdk_imlib.so.1: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

But I have imlib-1.9.9 installed! Anyone has any ideas? Thanks!

First run ldd <path/to/gkrellm> to make sure thats the only library you are missing. I dont think libgdk_imlib and imlib are the same thing. Anyway from the gkrellm README:
Requirements
============
To use or compile GKrellM, you need:
* GTK+ 1.2
* gdk-imlib (often distributed as part of the Imlib package).
To compile, you additionally need the development versions of these libs.
So maybe you should re-install the Imlib package. Or wait if others had this problem too (i compiled it from source in slack 8.1 and it worked fine) So since i see you are using slack too maybe you should try compiling from source too.
Well, sorry i couldn't help much, good luck compiling

np, next time just run ldconfig actually do it now to update library listings so things like this won't happen any more. You should run ldconfig every time you install new libraries. Also make sure /usr/local/lib is in /etc/ld.so.conf and every time you edit this file you need to re-run ldconfig (always as root). These are those annoying things when your system can't find the right libraries. It happened to me to install the same library a couple of times until i figured out its not listed in /etc/ld.so.conf!
Anyways HTH and remember ldconfig, since i forgot about it and sometimes took days to figure out libraries weren't in /etc/ld.so.conf!

GKRellm and msgfmt ?

I get this bizarro error when trying to make gkrellm:

(cd po && make all)
make[1]: Entering directory `/tmp/gkrellm-2.0.4/po'
msgfmt -f -v -o de.mo de.po
make[1]: msgfmt: Command not found
make[1]: *** [de.mo] Error 127
make[1]: Leaving directory `/tmp/gkrellm-2.0.4/po'
make: *** [all] Error 2


I am running slack-current as of 11/16/02,
GTK 1.2
Imlib is installed

I found some random message board post that says 'msgfmt' is part of texinfo?

Any clue?
