[Current Mood |bitchybitchy]

Ok, I got a little problem here. I'm trying to get the latest version of LogJam installed and am running into a problem. I have two computers experiencing identical problems. Here's the basic info.

RedHat 9 (Kernel: 2.4.20-6) - I haven't upgraded for a reason
Fedora Core 2 (Kernel: 2.6.5-1.358)

Both machines have gtkspell-2.0.5-1

Here's the deal. I download and uncompress logjam-4.4.0. When running "configure" I get the following:

 logjam 4.4.0 build configuration:

    - Using GTK: yes
      - Using GtkSpell: no
      - Using GtkHTML: no
      - Using librsvg: yes
      - Use docklet ("tray icon"): yes
    - Using networking backend: libxml
        WARNING: libxml network backend does not support proxy auth.
        Additionally, it provides less feedback while processing,
        and it fails less gracefully than Curl.
        If you need these features, you must build with Curl.
    - Build XMMS helper: yes

I don't much care about GtkHTML or curl. But spell is something I must insist on. I tried to download the FC1 RPM, but that errors out on a bunch of .so files that I verified I have. This is not cool. Anybody know what I can do about this?

Sorry if this has already been addressed. I scanned back a few pages and didn't see anything.

Generally speaking, with RPM-based Linux distributions, if you're going to compile stuff against a library, you need to have the "-devel" package installed for that library.

So you probably need to install the gtkspell-devel RPM, not just the gtkspell one.

Have you tried to pass the needed parameters to configure? './configure --help' helps... ;)

Yeah. I tried that. It changes nothing. It still just can't find libgtkspell.x.so - which is in /usr/lib and everything else detects it just fine. I'm totally stumped.

What the other two said: you need the -devel.

It includes not only the .h, which compilation needs, but also the .pc, which the configure script needs. All you need to run is the .so, though. :)
