Did some more playing around when I got home tonight, but I'm really tired.

I'm really at a loss here. I have GTK installed on my computer in /usr/lib but when I try to ./configure the xmms alarm's module it says it cannot find the GTK config file. I searched for it using the handy search in Gnome..searched for it by hand..ugh. Whats going on here? Any suggestions? Only one more problem to face...

Please, anyone out there, throw me a bone!

k, understand that 1.x and 2.x are completely different in terms of gnome libs.

for example, if you have gtk-2.4 installed it will not satisfy a dependency that say "gtk > gtk-1.2".
gtk-2 is not compatible with gtk-1.

so.......
for applications that use gtk-2 configure looks for pkg-config files to tell it what compiler flags it needs to generate so it can find everything it needs.

for applications that use gtk-1 configure looks for scripts called <pkg>-config. in this case, it is looking for a program called gtk-config which will tell it what cflags and ldflags to use to find everything.

type in a console:

gtk-config --help

and see if you get any output. (if you don't , you either dont have gtk-1.2.x installed or its not in your path (the former being most likely)).

on the su problem, are you using sudo or su to gain root privileges?

Thanks for the response _J....

I was in the middle of running ./configure on gtk+1.2.9 when it told me I was missing some included librariers. I checked the configlog and it turns out I need "Instrinsic.h" in /X11 folder.

Neato. Problem being, this is an Xfree86 lib file. I don't have Xfree86--Mandrake 10.1 uses X.org.

Does anyone know what would the complications be of putting both on my system?

And for the record _J, I've been using su, not sudo. What is the difference? Thanks!

you cannot install both Xfree and Xorg, but Xorg should have everything you need. (well actually you could if you set it up right but you would have to know how to manipulate the environment pretty good

that include on mine is "Intrinsic.h" (on Xorg 6.8.1) in /usr/X11R6/include/X11. Do you have the X11-devel package installed? and its possible the configure script is mis-spelling the name of the include.

su is the command to switch users in the terminal

sudo is a program that lets you run a command as the more priveliged user but takes a little setup.

I opened up Mandrake Control Center and searched for RPMs that dealt with x.org and installed everything I could.

Went to configure...and still had the same error.

Downloaded an Xorg-x11 devel pkg, went to install it and the system returned with:

fontconfig-devel >= 2.1 is needed by xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4
xorg-x11-libs = 6.8.1-4 is needed by xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4
xorg-x11 < 6.8.0 conflicts with xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4

So apparently, I have the devel files...?

do you have any header files in /usr/X11R6/include/X11? (if not then you do not have the devel package)

what are you trying to install again?

I'm trying to install GTK 1.2.9

I don't have any header files in /usr/X11R6/include/X11

Just bitmaps'n'stuff...


GAH!

I'm not sure what to do.

alright you need to install the xorg-devel for the version you are running. use urpmi/rpmdrake to do that.

I know your trying gtk-1.2.9, I mean what program are you trying to install (that needs glib-1.2.x, gtk-1.2.x, etc..).

for the base libs (like glib-1.2 gtk-1.2) you should probably stick with the Mandrake packages (both the base package and the corresponding -devel package).

Unfortunately, since your running Mandrake, this is all going to be harder due to the way rpm distro's split their packages......

Its so silly such a small thing has caused such a chaos...I'm trying to install xmms-alarm0.3.4.

I've installed everything that rpmdrake has for X.org and I have no devel packages. I would be happy to build from source if I knew where to get it...

try to use urpmi to install xorg-devel and see if that works ( you must have this to build against xorg/Xfree86).

and building X from source is not the smallest of tasks ( its a big build that comes with its own problems ).

by the way, this probably won't make any difference, but the current version is 0.3.6:

URPMI isn't working. Keeps saying there is "no package named" dah dah dah.

I found sources here but they're being a pain to install..keeps saying

fontconfig-devel >= 2.1 is needed by xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4
xorg-x11-libs = 6.8.1-4 is needed by xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4
xorg-x11 < 6.8.0 conflicts with xorg-x11-devel-6.8.1-4


So...not fun.

those rpm's are not mandrake rpm's. You'll have to find the ones for your system ( its generally a bad idea to find things a random off the net).

look on your install discs for the rpm (might be called xorg-devel or libxorg-devel or something similar)
they gotta be on there

surely there has to be the development package for x11 on one of the install cd's.
I've used Mandrake ( 10.0 ) and I remember getting it through rpmdrake. Its gotta be there. It would be a ridiculous for them not to have this package available.

Nope. Not there. Zilch. Nothing. I have only Mandrake to blame for this.

I have surfed Freshmeat looking for alarm aps to replace the one I've been using but have found only one that would compile without erroring out, and it turns out that one doesn't play sound. Not helpful. I'm pretty frustrated here, and if I didn't know how to program myself I would complain about the poor quality of the OSS alarm programs on freshmeat.

I guess I'll just log back into Windows nightly to run MusicMatch. That sucks, but I guess I'm just stuck with this solution until xmms-alarm starts using the new GTK/GLIB. If ever.
