Can you clarify what you mean by the development package? is it a separate file I need to download somewhere and install?

if you find your ./configure dies with a *.h file not found. you need to install the [package]-devel.rpm or some such. the mandrake rpms containing -devel are the 'headers' (the *.h files) this is how a program being compiled knows how to link to existing libraries.

example:
with the python problem, you say python is installed. now install python-devel and ./configure and see what happens

This installation of python 2.3 is giving me hell! Is there someone who can find me an RPM that has EVERYTHING in it? LIke I just double click it, put in my root password, and BAM - it's installed? If we can send someone to the moon, someone has to be able to make it.

Actually, let's close this thread as I have found the RPM for the software I want (SuperKaramba 0.33). It just came out for RPM today so no need for me to need Python anymore for this specific software.

I don't get why an RPM can install something really easily but compiling requires ten thousand different things to do. It's kind of weird in my opinion.

Gratz Micro420! Actually, I've been using the 0.32 in Mandrake 9.2 RC2 and it's working great. However, now that you've found 0.33 Superkaramba RPM would you be so kind as to let me know where it is?

Sure thing chief.

Click on the DOWNLOAD

This one you don't have to compile (Thank God!). I use Mandrake 9.1 and even though it's for RedHat, all I did was go to console:

1) su
2) rpm -U <filename>.rpm
3) that's it!
4) then type 'superkaramba' and you're set!

Thanks Bud! Also, Micro420 if you decide to upgrade to 9.2 check out the thread I started about "Run" command not being in 9.2. Another poster has info there on how to add a "run command" into your panel or menu dock for 9.2. I've been using it and Karamba works great. Only thing is, when I try to run the OS X theme in Karamba the OS X dock is not centered on my screen. It's docked slightly to the bottom right. I'm not sure how to correct this as of yet.

Linuxly Yours,

are you using the 'osXbar'? I use that also. If this is the one you use, then I can tell you how to position the dock bar. YOu have to edit a file and easily change the X,Y position of the doc bar.

Whoots:

go to the directory where you installed the osXbar theme. I don't know which version you are using, but the most recent is 1.0.11 (however I liked version 1.0.10 better).
To change the location of the dock bar, icons, sound, size, etc... you have to edit the file 'osXbar.conf'

YOu can change everything about the osX bar and customize it with your own icons, sounds and all that good stuff. let me know if you need me to clarify.

Micro 420, I've tried using the e-macs editor to change the X, Y numbers like X=400, Y=400 because I figured that those might control the bar's verticle & horizontile axis. However, when I changed them nothing seemed to change about the bar. Funny thing is..when I run the bar with the Fluxbox 1.1.4 GUI it is centered correctly but it is then spaced to high up.

Ahhh well...Linuxly Yours,

Whoots:

there is the new osXbar 1.0.12. This one is much better and has more options to configure. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=8030

Also make sure you toggle the "LOCKED" position when you right click your dock bar. Other than that, I don't know why your thing is moving. Maybe it's the refresh interval or something?
