Re: troubles compiling.

Okay one, I may have been a little.. short. However, to put it simply, i 
figured out i needed libart after i sent off my initial email. Second, the 
part about libpng, if you had picked up where i had failed you would have 
noticed that, no, the dia FAQ states that you need libart to use export png 
functions, Duh, why don't i tell him? Ahh, but you did not, you pinned it as 
pure newbie acts. how ever, thank you Andrew i have what i need, and i'm 
going to be trying it out after i finish my dinner. 

" For the benefit of those readers who, like myself, noticed that there is
no mentioned of libart in his error message:";

Are you able to see the connection between "png export support" and the file 
that contains the errors "export_png.c"?
"First, though I should write the word Distribution, I didn't because I 
wonder if Whitty is a newbie and doesn't know the word."
I'm sure you can imagine the implications of this word, need i say more?

I am sorry, I was wrong, i should have done a bit more research before i sent 
off my email. Thank you

Simple logic could have figured out all your questions.

I wonder if I'm the only one who thought this email to be quite rude.

Thanks Andrew,
I think so, and I believe there are someone else care about that.
But let's go back to the problem as you did.

There were two wrong point in my mail where Whitty and Andrew
First, though I should write the word Distribution, I didn't because I
wonder if Whitty is a newbie and doesn't know the word.

 OS: obvious, by the
fact that i'm compiling it, it would be a *nix, now, that we have
singled it down to a bsd (save darwin and a few others {i believe it's
safe to say that i don't use them}) or linux. Does that matter? I doubt

You might be using Cygwin, for some strange reason. Instead of OS, he
probably should have said "distribution" (see below).

 Second: Compiler:
again, my error message i don't think spawns from a compiler error
rather than a missing library.

I concur.

Second, this is my mistake. If he haven't correctry installed -dev package,
some error precede, like "'png.h' wasn't found" or something.

 but if you had looked
at the error message i think you would have made the connection between
libart and my error.

If you knew that, you should add them to your E-mail.
It is the fastest way to find the solution.

Now I know you are not a newbie, I think the fastest way
for you is to answer Andrew's question below.

What distribution are you using, and is there a good reason for not
using the distribution-provided packages?
