Unhappy problem with running DDD

It was a toss up to post this in this forum or the "programming" forum, but since this is more related to the software itself, I posted it here (mods feel free to move it if necessary).

I'm taking an assembly language class this semester and while all the assignments are in linux using NASM (yay!) they want us to use 'ddd' for debugging. (It's installed in the labs)

I installed it in mandrake 9.2, I'm using version ddd-3.3.6-2mdk from rpmfind (urmpi didn't want to connect yesterday it seemed) and it installed ok..

But when I try to run it, it comes up...everything seems fine, but it doesn't respond at all to mouse or keyboard...I can click on anything but nothing happens, with the exception of the "tip of the day" screen at the beginning.

Running it in console I get the following errors:

Warning: XmStringGetNextComponent: unknown type 143470616
(Annoyed? Try Edit->Preferences->General->Suppress X Warnings!)

followed by a few other errors exactly like that one but with a different number.

Can anyone help me?

My wild guess is that it's using Motif, and
you haven't got it installed (and LessTif still
hasn't got quite the same features). My suggestion
is to uninstall whatever you have, and get
the source and compile it yourself.

Thanks Tickster...

I gave that a try and it wouldn't compile..normally I'd post the errors on here to try and fix it, but since its for a homework assignment I was tight on time so I tried a few things.

I ended up installing a previous version 3.3.1 and that works extremely well....

(and considering the lab computers only run 2.6, I'm still better off) hehe

thanks for the help tho...I appreciate it.
