Superkaramba is not compiling


Dear freinds,
First of all thank you for your help, its much appreciated. My version - Mandriva 2006, i586. I am trying to compile superkaramba .39 (latest) version but i am getting an error "python libraries/headers not found", but i checked it and they are there. I did researched a little bit and it seems like no body compiles, instead gets the rpm and installs it through urpmi. I tried to install the older .37rpm for mandriva but it is giving me an error "cannot be installed (due to unsatisfied xmmsctrl), what my question is, why the heck it needs xmms to install superkaramba, anyways then i tried to install xmms and it gave me an error for gtk/glib. I installed gtk/glib through MCC and i thought every thing will finally work, well it didnt, when i try to install xmms again,it still gives the same error, cannot find "glib+ 1.2.2 >="i am really lost. Please let me know what i am doing wrong ?
Thank You
Dave

with any RPM bases system you are going to find compiling other software difficult, because all RPM based systems have a habit of not installing the Development side of packages (required to build other software linked with said packages...example...python)

what you will need to do is install the devel packages for Mandriva (on one of your disks) it will be something like python-2.3.2-devel-i386.rpm

to install said file do the following:
Code:
 rpm -Uvh python-2.3.2-devel-i386.rpm
as root from the folder where you find that particular RPM file

while you are at it install any other devel packages you feel you may use in the future (if you plan on building lots of software, go ahead an install them all with something like
Code:
 for rpmFile in *devel*.rpm; do rpm -Uvh "$rpmFile" ; done
if rpm does a tone of bitching and complaining, don't worry, the -U option means upgrade; it will not override anything important )

This is not just limited to rpm based distros. Even Debian based distros don't install devel files unless the user does so themselves.

On Mandriva, you are better off compiling superkaramba yourself because the version shipped with Mandriva includes some themes that rely on third party packages (like XMMS) which you may not need.

Superkaramba

Thank you for replying guys, the problem here is all packages are there, devel package for python including. Still it says missing python headers/libraries, this is the error which i get while compiling superkaramba as root, "checking for Python directory... /usr/local
checking for Python2.4... header no library no modules /usr/lib/python2.4
checking for Python2.3... header no library no modules no
checking for Python2.2... header no library no modules no
checking for Python2.1... header no library no modules no
checking for Python2.0... header no library no modules no
checking for Python1.5... header no library no modules no
checking for libxmms... ./configure: line 43081: xmms-config: command not found
./configure: line 43083: xmms-config: command not found
no"
And if you will see the second line says no library no modules in /usr/lib/python2.4, but THEY are THERe.
any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thank You

You do not have the python devel package installed. Try doing
Code:
#urpmi libpython2.4-devel

When i tried your suggestion "urpmi libpython2.4-devel" it says no package named "urpmi libpython2.4-devel"and when i just tried urpmi libpython, it says the packages are already installed.
