Tried to get install on any of the linux OS, but failed miserably.

The distro I have tried: CentOS5.2, failed at ./configure

./configure

This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or

Try to install using yum

check with the mirrors.


It is a Known bug with slightly older source files.

If a rpm is not available, then get the latest source and compile

You can also get it converted online.

On Ubuntu apt-get installs it fine ...I have it installed. Check your repositories. Have you enabled test repos??

Another way is to search for a precompiled package on http://rpm.pbone.net/

For ubuntu, add the following to /etc/apt/sources.list

replace hardy with your distro

Quote:
deb http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy universe
deb-src http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ hardy universe
Then apt-get update
