Pure Data installation on Fedora 11

Hi, I've just tried to install PD on fedora 11 by downloading it and following this list:
tar xjf Pd-0.41.4-extended.tar.bz2
cd Pd-0.41.4-extended
make install
When I start PD by typing "pd" in the terminal I get the following error:
pd: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
does anyone have an idea? I'm pretty new to linux so.. and very excited about using pure data

install jack and related packages

Use yum or yumex for that

<root passwd>
#yum update
#yum install yumex

PD is not in the fedora package database. I will make a request for getting it packaged.

Thanks Amani!

I've just got it solved, but will post my solution for others:

- first go to and download the fedora package
- install it with the terminal:
tar xjf Pd-0.41.4-extended-planetccrma9-i386.tar.bz2 (from the folder where you've the file in)
cd Pd-0.41.4-extended
make install
- then go to this page and follow documentation
- put "pd" in the terminal and it should start
