First try 'urpmi libxfree86-devel' to install the missing headers it's complaining about.

If that doesn't work you should tell us what distro you're using (9.2, 10.0 etc) and what package you're trying to compile.

Also, did you check 'development' when you installed ? If you didn't it's likely that you're going to have to install more of the -devel rpms to get the libraries and headers you need before compiling becomes easy.

Tom

Ok I got this "libxfree86-devel" installed, and now I get this error:

For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

omg another error... :

Code:
 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 wxWidgets libraries are installed (returned by
        'wx-config --libs' command) is in LD_LIBRARY_PATH or
        equivalent variable and wxWidgets 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)
        * Note:
        Most probably, either one of the above aren't correct, you don't
        have wxGTK installed, or are missing wxGTK-devel (or equivalent) package

I think you will have to install wx-config:

Code:
urpmi wx-config
This shows you should install qt:

checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.0) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
For more details about this problem, look at the end of config.log.

It should be greater then or equal to qt version 3.0

Code:
urpmi qt
If you haven't got it you can download it at http://www.rpmfind.com


If you see what ./configure is looking for is not found: for example:

Code:
checking for wx-config... no
Code:
checking for Qt...  blahblah Qt blahblah not found
Then try to install it with urpmi.

Regards

Tom, I read qt is called libqt3 on mandrake, else it can be qt3.

I know how annoying this is. I have always had these kind of problems when I was on Mandrake. I was supprised how easily it went after switching to Red Hat where I had never any dependecy problems. The same counts for Slackware and Gentoo where I'm now on.

Regards,

Ben

yes I understand it is easy on RedHat because I had it, but are RedHat or Slackware or gentoo user friendly?, or can you make ur desktop look nice? does it support mounting windows partitionS? i mean can you read windows partitions on them? and do they install all of your hardwar? because I dont think they are that way... I want a nice userfriendly (nice looking :-P) and pretty easy and useful OS, dont really know which one is that, Im switching all the time and I still cannot find THE ONE,

I downloaded Gentoo, but then I went on their website, and it seems like it is VERY HARD to install, I'm a linux newbie, I've installed only Redhat9 Suse 9.1 and MDK 10 before, and I dont know if I could handle Gentoo, do you think I should try?

Thanks,


Tom

I have asked on the gentoo forums if it would be to difficult too install Gentoo for a newbie. I can say you will learn a lot from it but I think if something goes wrong it can be hard to solve. Mandrake is actually something you could like, but I think you just have to adjust it a bit to your needs. I have heard good things about Suse but I haven't tried it. It should be a bit similar to Mandrake and RedHat. The advantage is that you can often use a GUI or a wizard to setup something in these distro's.
You can adapt your desktop the way you like it, you can for example choose to use transparant menu's, use different icon's and use different colors. You only have to adjust it using the options in the config center or something. There are also enough choices in different desktops you can choose from, like gnome and kde. To use a new desktop you'll probhably just have to install the one you like (urpmi gnome for example), whereafter you choose to startup with the new desktop in the config center of the desktop your now using. Mandrake is a bit annoiying because of those install difficulties.
Your Windows partitions are pherhaps already mounted under /mnt on Mandrake.
The hardware compatibility should be pretty the same on the distro's.
So I believe Suse, RedHat and Mandrake are pretty much the same, but Mandrake has those install difficulties.
You can take a look here to get an impression of what is possible with the desktops http://justlinux.com/forum/showthrea...hreadid=130938 You won't be dissapointed after adjusting them a bit.

I like Mandrake so far, and I also loved suse, but suse didnt have gcc, make or other important stuff like that either, thats why i changed it to mandrake with a hope i wouldnt have to do A LOT of compiling on it, ive read a lot of stuff about gentoo and ive read that it is very user unfriendly too bad i really wanted to try it lol, ive even downloaded it, but it scared me a lot, is there a possible installation of gentoo in not text mode, in like visual mode or something like that?

what do you suggest, what would be better for me to do, "I know I am a newbie, but not thhat much of a computer noobie, I know pretty much stuff about computers" should i stay with Mandrake and try to compile everything I can, or should I switch ?


Thanks for your time

Tom

There is Navyn OS which is based on Gentoo. I just read about it. You can install it with an installer that is on the cd's wereafter you will have a working Gentoo system. When you have it installed you can install every program on Gentoo with "emerge program" That will ./configure, compile and install the program for you automaticly.

http://www.edworak.os1.kappa.pl/index.php?id_article=1

Some people seem to have problems with setting up their partitions with Navyn OS. and maybe you will have to setup your network manually. The default desktop is fluxbox, you'll prophably want that to change to another desktop like gnome. I can help you with these things tomorrow if you like to.

Greetings,

Ben
