Decide to take a break from networking my computers and was looking around at file managers available in GUI. The xfe looked good so to make a long store short I'm having problems.
It was listed on "SlackBuilds.org" but could not get the source to load so I downloaded the only version I could find from "sourceforge" which was 1.00. I changed the slackbuild version number and it would not work.
So, next step was to try out the src2pkg tool and I got the following errors on it.
bash-3.1# src2pkg xfe-1.00.tar.gz
Found source archive: xfe-1.00.tar.gz

ERROR! Compiling source code has failed.
This usually happens because of missing libraries, or
badly written Makefiles or configure scripts.
Found an RPM .spec file which shows this:

BuildRequires: fox-devel >= 1.6 libpng-devel >= 1.2
src2pkg FAILURE in compile_source
I check on the libpng and that's the newest version I can find. I don't understand this one so could someone point me in the right direction.
Note: The fox-toolkit worked great on the "slackbuild" and according to the doc's this was the only dependency mentioned.
Thanks for the help.
