gtk install


Hi, I'm trying to install GTK+ 2.9.0 and I get this error during compile.

checking for freetype-config... /usr/bin/freetype-config
checking for FT_New_Face in -lfreetype... no
configure: error: pangoxft Pango backend found but did not find freetype libraries

Now I installed freetype2 from a src.rpm to make sure it installed correctly with my system, and I installed pango a while back but if I recall correctly it installed fine. I do remember having lots of trouble with glibc dependencies here and there. I may need to reinstall pango but I figured I'd post here to see if anyone knew what else I could do.

Me -->

Thanks

I seem to recall that freetype and freetype2 are two different things. (Dumb, I know.) See if you have freetype installed, or if installing it makes any difference.

Ah yes, that would help too I completely forgot about that. Anytime you're compiling, and it starts balking about foo, it means you probably don't have foo-devel installed (since devel is for people who are going to be compiling stuff). That tripped me up for a while.

Though, it is not always obvious what library contains foo... That aspect of it is still giving me headaches!

Okay, it's not freetype, or foo. I think it's a pango problem. I have version 1.x. Not sure which, but I downloaded a newer version. Tried installing it and I get like 5 dependencies needed. and I also need glibc for one of the depenencies...great Well, I'm on 56K so I'll take a day or two to download all the stuff and I'll let you guys know how it goes.

See ya soon.

definate freetype error

okay, I've pretty much found out this is a definate freetype error. I tried installing something else today and got the same message, checked out the config.log and discovered that it's got something to do with @LIBZ@. It tries to access it as a directory but can't find it.

If anyone has any ideas on how to correct this, the information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

I've found hints on other forums about it but no one ever printed the info out on the boards, it was always "so and so told me how, thanks".

Do you have zlib installed? (I know it is needed for compiling some stuff, and my RPM lists zlib as being necessary for glibc)

If you can, see if you can post the exact errors you're getting. It might make it easier for us to interpret what they are saying.
