I downloaded gnumeric, got it compiled.
The core app seems to work very nicely.
It's the plug-ins I'm having the odd problem with.
When I lauched gnumeric I got errors of the
unable to open module file: /usr/local/lib/gnumeric/plugins/libpython.so:
undefined symbel: rlcomplete
The problem is that my Python binary has various extensions compiled into
it that depend on shared libraries; this one depends on the readline
I've hacked my plugins/python/Makefile.am as follows:
-libpython_la_LIBADD = -l$(PYTHON_LIBS) $(PTHREAD_LIB)
+libpython_la_LIBADD = -l$(PYTHON_LIBS) $(PTHREAD_LIB) \
+ -lreadline -lcrypt -ltcl -ltk -lncurses \
but that's only going to work for my particular set of modules.
Is this a known problem? Is a solution being worked on? I could probably
cobble together an autoconf macro or two to autodetect at least the
modules I've heard of... should I try this?
The perl module also doesn't load for similar reasons, but I know vastly
less about that.
