Re: Creating output

Thank you for your help!

However I am now having trouble compiling the CVS versions and haven't
found any related discussions on this list.

When i try to configure I get this:
bash#./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-gnome
checking for png_read_info in -lpng... yes
./configure: line 9315: syntax error near unexpected token `yes:no'
./configure: line 9315: `  yes:no'

If I edit the script to try to fix it, it still breaks further down the

This has happened with both the 20020404 and 20020416 CVS snapshots.  Am
I doing something wrong?

If you don't want to touch the actual CVS, or like me have firewalls to
contend with, you can get the latest CVS snapshot at
Just do the usual:
tar -xzvf <filename>
./configure (with any options e.g. --prefix=/usr for RH7.2., --enable-gnome

make install (if you want)

You'll probably want to delete the offending lines in the XML as per your

I have had similar problems, under Red Hat 7.2.

When I go to edit a particular diagram, it will not let me print it,
either to a printer or a file.  The application just freezes after
clicking the "Ok" button in the print dialog.
Pasting the entire contents into a new diagram allows it to print.

Because of the nature of my diagram (LAN topology, lots of small items
on one page), I need to scale the page to 20x.  I noticed in the
original diagram that in the Page Setup, if I selected a "Fit
To" value
and then went back to Scale, the Scale changes from "20.0" to
"Nan".  On
inspection of the XML file, this value is saved as "nan", presumably
indicating a non-numeric value.  This does not happen on a
file, so possibly is a source of the problem?

Also, "obj_bb" fields are added to the XML file.  Even if I explicitly
delete the relevant obj_bb lines from the file, on reloading
and saving,
Dia puts the same values back.  Are these bounding boxes?
Some of them
have ridiculously high values, such as "4.4449e+169".  I
thought perhaps
this notation was making the postscript renderer barf?

Any ideas?
