XFCE help if you would?


Here's my error messages from make while I try for the bazillionth time to install XFCE. Is it you tricky that uses xfce as your standard Desk Env. or was that someone else? Crap, I can't remember anything anymore. configure goes super-duper and then make spits this out. Any instant, glaring problem i've missed?

how quickly is it giving that error and leaving the directory ?? and are you installing this on your slack box or on your LFS ??

I just installed as I wasn't currently using it and had no problems installing it.

If your using slack 8, you shouldn't have any problems. Not sure if this would do it or not but what directory are you configuring and compiling from.. I noticed that it was referring to /usr/include and so on from your errors you recieved.. have you tried installing from another directory, I downloaded to /root and installed from there and if you run the:

./configure --prefix=/usr/local --datadir=/usr/local/share --sysconfdir=/etc/X11 &&
make &&
make install

You should be able to install with no problems and it should set it globally by default for all users to be able to load with no problems.

Also do make sure you have like stated in the INSTALL file

gtk+ 1.2.x
glib 1.2.x
libXpm 4.x
gcc

on your system for it to run properly..

let us know..

Thanks for replying. It errors out about 6-7 seconds into make and yeah it's on Slack 8. I did do a quick requirments check, so that's ok. I was installing from /usr/local/src but will try from /root as that may make the difference. I appreciate it and will let you know what happens. Thanks...

I also compiled Xfce with no problems in Slack 8 from my /home dir. So was it you Trickykid who suggested Xfce in one of the threads? If so thanks a lot, It is great indeed, much better than KDE or GNOME IMHO.

And sorry for asking a question not realated to this, but what difference does it make from what directory you compile something?
And sorry i could'nt help....

Well, it's not a directory or more specifically a path problem. /root doesn't work and i've also tried it from /home before. I'm possitive that Slack 8 and I have the proper libs installed. Did either of you have a problem installing it on Slack without having to download additional libs? I may have missed one and will go see.

Well, as I know that the libs are all installed i'm a tad stumpededed unless it's something stupid I should know.

Here is the output of make from another program I tried to install today.

In file included from /usr/include/bits/errno.h:25,
from /usr/include/errno.h:36,
from main.c:57:
/usr/include/linux/errno.h:4: asm/errno.h:
No such file or directory
make: *** [main.o] Error 1

Only difference is obviously it refers to main instead of the fileutil. But always an error. Only thing is I might have missed something when I recompiled to 2.4.16?

seems to me probably.. cause the other program is referring to that errno.h or something as well.. not sure what that is used for.. but could definitly be the culprit..

Ok, i'm now running xfce and super darn happy with it I must say! What did I do to fix it you ask? Silly sort of but the symlink in /usr/include called 'asm' points to /usr/src/linux/asm BUT after compiling the 2.4.16 kernel /usr/src/linux/asm is no longer but becomes /usr/src/linux/asm-i386. Change the symlink and whadya know, things are installing dandy now. Sheesh...
