I can't get gnome-libs to configure beyond the dbopen tests.
For some reason db-1.85 won't compile on my linuxfromscratch system, or
slackware 7.1 and the slackware db-1.85.4.slackware.bin.tgz package's
libraries weren't convincing enough for configure... I managed to get
db-4.0.14 to compile (with the --enable-compat185 option) and still
I swear, *with* gnome, whenever I want to some gnome application, it
seems like they all need ~6 packages if you count the dependencies
dependencies and you're *never* caught up (you would think eventually
you would simply fill up your disk or something). I guess it's no
suprise that gnome-libs is even worse. I've spent forever with this, and
I'm sure that configure is going to complain when I finally get *this*
about something new many more times.
Is there a *simple* solution for the dbopen thing that somebody here
knows about? I figure it's probably something in my base libraries, like
libc or something? I'm stuck, I need a hint maybe?
Don't mean to whine so much, but twm is making me sick. Hope it's OK
that there isn't any funky code or pages of logs for anyone :)(: in
this. ..Now I've got to get an intermediate window manager to use to
step-up to gnome, I always wondered why it always seems to be running in
tandem with sawfish or enlightenment :).
