Unhappy installing kmess messenger on my rhle


i downloaded kmess from the internet
and i extracted the package in order to install it
but after excuting ./configure which is inside kmess directory
an error occurs:


[root@localhost kmess-2.0]# ./configure

which: no kde4-config in (/usr/kerberos/sbin:/usr/kerberos/bin:/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/X11R6/bin:/root/bin)
configuring KMess 2.0
checking build directory
running cmake from /Downloads/kmess-2.0/build
command: cmake -D CMAKE_INSTALL_PREFIX=/usr/local \
-D CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=relwithdebinfo \
-D KMESS_DEBUG_OUTPUT=0 \
/Downloads/kmess-2.0

./configure: line 156: cmake: command not found
-- cmake failed

Please fix the problems mentioned above, and run ./configure again.
For example, make sure you have the KDE 4 devel packages installed.

did you read the installation instructions and prerequisites? make sure you have the required packages and tools, which it appears you do not have; follow this: http://trac.kmess.org/wiki/Compiling...uringwithCMake

A warning is not an error, just an information.
In this case, it tells, who compressed the package.

Building an rpm package from src.rpm is easy :
# rpmbuild -bb name.spec
( The package 'rpm-build' is required.)
.. Please rename kmess-el5.spec.txt to kmess-el5.spec
and do : # rpmbuild -bb kmess-el5.spec
The location of the created package is
/usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/kmess-1.5.2-1el5.i386.rpm
.....

'kmess-2.0' is meant for KDE4. KDE4 is not available on EL5.
.....
Extra packages for 1.5.2 :
# yum install libXScrnSaver-devel libXinerama-devel libXext-devel

If you want to manually install 1.5.2 :
Code:
./configure --disable-debug --enable-mt --enable-shared --disable-static --disable-objprelink --with-pic --with-gnu-ld --disable-rpath --disable-embedded --enable-fast-install=yes --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib/qt-3.3 --with-xinerama

You already unpacked kmess-1.5.2-1pclos2009.src.rpm
to /usr/src/redhat/BUILD/

So now it's time to build a package with 'rpmbuild'.
'rpm' isn't used for that. !

# rpmbuild -bb kmess-el5.spec

... and nothing else. Let the build finish. And install the package.

( I assume, you downloaded the 3.3 kB text file kmess-el5.spec.txt )
The only reason for suffix .txt : Else you can't attach it.

still cannot install

while excuting rpmbuild -bb kmess-el5.spec
many dependencies showed up
kdebase-devel is needed by kmess-1.5.2-1el5.i386
kdenetwork-devel is needed by kmess-1.5.2-1el5.i38
which leeds me to kdelibs and libkkdnssd-devel respectively
that i didn't find them on my installation dvd neither on the net

Hence this line in post # 3 :
# yum install kdebase-devel kdenetwork-devel qt-devel libxslt-devel
... Or haven't you got a Redhat subscribtion for EL 5 ?

Free packages are of course available from CentOS or
Scientific Linux 5.3 , free versions of RH EL 5.
Example address :
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/os/i386/CentOS/
updates
http://mirror.centos.org/centos/5/updates/i386/RPMS/

kdelibs-devel : one in each of the mirrors, post # 9. ( a : os , b : update.)
.. can't say which one will fit your system ...

libkdnssd-devel : non existent as a package name,
but provided by kdnssd-avahi-devel .....

The version, I have is
kdnssd-avahi-devel-0.1.3-0.1.20060713svn.fc6.i386.rpm
http://linux1.fnal.gov/linux/fermi/s...n.fc6.i386.rpm
.. ( originally from my install DVD, CentOS 5.2 , not in the repo's any more.)
.....
.....

And you should really install a free version of Redhat EL 5.
The are two : CentOS 5.3 and Scientific Linux 5.3.
http://distrowatch.com/index.php?dis...h=all&year=all
http://distrowatch.com/index.php?dis...h=all&year=all
.. and have all 8000 packages in your package manager .. to install with a click.
.....
