rakarrack not passing configure

I'm running Fedora 11 with Gnome DE:

I installed rakarrack via yum, and it seemed to install okay. When I tried to start it, however, nothing happened. Starting rakarrack from a command prompt resulted in an Illegal instruction error.

So, I removed rakarrack via yum, and untarred the source (rakarrack-0.3.0.tar.gz) from sourceforge. Running ./configure now gives me the following error:
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes

checking for g++... g++

checking for fltk-config... no
configure: error: fltk not installed!
running rpm -q fltk gives me this:
I can't seem to get past this. Does anyone run rakarrack on Fedora 11 successfully?

No, you have only the one part of 'fltk' installed.

The missing package is 'fltk-devel'
.. When configure asks for "name", it means the files
needed for compiling, which are in "name"-devel.
( There are some few exceptions.)

I'll try later, if rakarrack will work in F 11.

Yes, the -devel, or -dev (debian based) packages are needed on most distributions. This goes for most anything relatively recent you're going to compile.

FWIW, I recommend compiling Rakarrack from current CVS if going from source. Josep has added a number of MIDI features since the 0.3.0 release, as well as improvements to note recognition.

I have also submitted a patch that fixes the compressor. I haven't found anybody who has complained about the compressor, but I found it was horribly wrong and quirky. Current CVS has my first fix (which is an improvement), and I have just submitted my final fix to it....hopefully it will be committed to CVS within the next week. It's all up to the devel team, now.

I may be contacted using transmogrifox ~at~ yahoo ~dot~ com if anybody wants my fixes and hacks. In my own personal hack I have added a slider to adjust the knee on the compressor.
