installing GRip from source

Post by Calum »

Code: Select all

root@boxotrix:~/grip-3.0.6# ./configure && make && make install
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/ginstall -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... yes
checking for working aclocal... found
checking for working autoconf... found
checking for working automake... found
checking for working autoheader... found
checking for working makeinfo... found
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of Makefiles... no
checking for gnome-config... no
checking for gnomeConf.sh file in /usr/local/lib... not found
configure: error: Could not find the gnomeConf.sh file that is generated by gnome-libs install
root@boxotrix:~/grip-3.0.6# find / -name gnomeConf.sh -print
root@boxotrix:~/grip-3.0.6#
i am trying to install grip from source, as you can see it appears to want gnomeConf.sh which is generated by the install of gnome-libs. now the thing is that i do have gnome 2.2 installed, however since it was installed as slackpackages, i am thinking that perhaps no gnomeConf.sh was ever generated. what do you think is my best bet for getting grip to recognise the stuff it needs and install properly?

thanks in advance as always

okay well using a tgz gets it to install but it still won't run for the following reason:

Code: Select all

calum@boxotrix:~$ grip
grip: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeui.so.32: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
now gnome is installed, i have used it myself. this file is part of the "Main GNOME Libraries" so what's the deal i wonder?

edit:
well i just went and installed the gnomeui package off the slack CD and here's the situation after i install it:

Code: Select all

calum@boxotrix:~$ grip
grip: error while loading shared libraries: libgnomeui.so.32: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
calum@boxotrix:~$ ls /usr/lib/libgnomeui*
/usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.a    /usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0@
/usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.la*  /usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so.0.200.0*
/usr/lib/libgnomeui-2.so@
any idea? i know there's some file missing, but why? and how do i get it? as far as i know i have installed all the stuff, but this file still is not there!

well i fixed it in the end, i just kept trying to run grip and every time it moaned about a library not being there i just copied it from /mnt/redhat/usr/lib into /usr/lib, but obviously this is not a very good model for this sort of thing, especially for people who don't happen to have an entire red hat operating system on /mnt/redhat.
