Re: *** Pango not found. Pango built with Cairo support is required

Ok. The problem was compiling Cairo with "--disabled-shared" option.
I removed that, re-configure and rebuild cairo followed by pango and it

But this means that pango cannot support static linking?

With that hurdle behind me, the next problem is getting /dev/fb0 to actually
I had re-compiled the kernel with framebuffer support but fbset -i complains

# fbset -i
open /dev/fb0: No such device

I did find instruction to append parameters to the kernel but those are for
Most distribution now use grub.
Any idea how to get grub to add the kernel parameters?

I tried:
kernel /vmlinuz-2.4.21-37.0.1.EL-fb ro root=LABEL=/ hdb=ide-scsi VGA=ask

but that did not prompt me to select a mode.

Maybe I am not following here... however, pangocairo.pc is
created always, but actually installed only if you compile
pango with cairo.  I cannot see any mention of how pango was
configured in the previous e-mails, so who knows.

Ah, you're right.  My bad.  So yeah, check your pango configure.log to
see why it didn't find cairo.
