raggle with Fedora 10


Hi all,

I am having all the trouble to install raggle from source to fedora. I also could not install the rpm package because of dependency problems. I tried to download and install "ncurses-ruby" and also could not install it from source. I could not find a valid rpm package for it. I installed a lot of packages hoping to satisfy these dependency problems to no avail.

Has any one succeeded in doing so? If someone could please tell me how could you do it?

When compiling on RH/Fedora you have to install the -devel versions of any dependencies the compile is calling for.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply.
This is what I did, I do not know what am I missing? I have no idea how to do it?

?

Here is what I had when I tried to compile ncurses-ruby:
Code:
[faizlo@localhost ncurses-ruby-1.1]$ ruby extconf.rb
checking for unistd.h... no
checking for ncurses.h... no
checking for ncurses/curses.h... no
checking for curses.h... no
*** extconf.rb failed ***
Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers.  Check the mkmf.log file for more
details.  You may need configuration options.

Provided configuration options:
        --with-opt-dir
        --without-opt-dir
        --with-opt-include
        --without-opt-include=${opt-dir}/include
        --with-opt-lib
        --without-opt-lib=${opt-dir}/lib
        --with-make-prog
        --without-make-prog
        --srcdir=.
        --curdir
        --ruby=/usr/bin/ruby
extconf.rb:36: ncurses header file not found (RuntimeError)
I am not sure I understand what it says. May be can't find the right path to some header files, but how may I fix this? I could locate those files which he complains about in the right path, that's /usr/include/ncurses, /usr/include/lib.

ncurses-ruby is not in the repo! also raggle is not in the repo. I will be happy to see it there. I know it is kind of old and there is a package named snownews, yet raggle is very nice and friendly.

The ruby-ncurses is here: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/b...?buildID=61498

Not sure why it did not make it into the repo.

On the compile thing; do you have ncurses-devel installed?

For stuff you cannot find you can use: yum provides whatever

In your case, unistd.h is provided by kernel-devel(amongst others).
