wx-config problem strange problem plz help
i was unable to compile the source the system crashed asking for wx-config file, what is it ?

extern size_t iconv (iconv_t cd, char * *inbuf, size_t *inbytesleft, char * *outbuf, size_t *outbytesleft);
checking for nl_langinfo and CODESET... yes
checking for LC_MESSAGES... yes
checking for bison... no
checking whether NLS is requested... yes
checking whether included gettext is requested... no
checking for GNU gettext in libc... yes
checking for wx-config... no
configure: error:
Please check that wx-config is in path, the directory
where wxWindows libraries are installed (returned by
'wx-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
equivalent variable and wxWindows is version 2.4.0 or above.
Or this might also be a bug in our configure. Please try again
with --with-wx-config=/usr/bin/wx-config
(replace /usr/bin/wx-config with a valid path to your wx-config)

any ideas? what the hell is wx-config anyway

wx-config is a helper script that comes with wxWindows ( You won't have it if you don't have wxWindows installed.

The program you're trying to compile needs to link with wxWindows.

do you know where can i download wxwindows ?

Download it by going to and clicking on Download. You'll see a multitude of things to download.

You probably want Unix/GTK+ version 2.4.1 stable.

Incidentally, it was the configuration script which terminated with an error.

The system did not crash -- that is what would have happened had you been using Windoze.

When you use Linux, you must learn to decribe your problems in a more accurate manner.
