different gaim install problems on fedora
Posted 18 July 2004 - 06:45 AM
rpm -ivh gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm
and it says this
I then installed atk and glib and pango, ( apprently required for gtk) then I installed gtk 2.4 and the same error happens
warning: gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm: V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 4c292fcc
error: Failed dependencies:
gtk+2.0 >= 2.0.0 is needed by gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0
libnss3 is needed by gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0
perl-base >= 2:5.8.3 is needed by gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0
that nokey error didn't happen until I got all the updates.
if anyone could help me that would be great.
thanks a lot

I don't know what version of gaim I was trying to install but I downloaded and compiled the source and it seemed to work sorta. it compiles but, you need to compile it with ssl libraries to use the MSN part of it.
so I installed GNUtls (and the packages required by GNUtls).
I then uninstalled, reconfigured, recompiled and reinstalled gaim.
the congurator, said that it was going to use the SSL libraries from GNUtls ...great
then when I try to run gaim it says the same error, that the ssl libraries are not installed.
on the gaim.sf.net/faq-ssl.php site it says to type this command:
which gives me this result:
linux-gate.so.1 => (0x00a3c000)
libgnutls.so.12 => not found
libgcrypt.so.11 => not found
libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0x00732000)
libc.so.6 => /lib/tls/libc.so.6 (0x00eb8000)
/lib/ld-linux.so.2 => /lib/ld-linux.so.2 (0x00bbf000)
I have gnutls installed and I have libgcrypt installed, I don't know why it says not found.
when I installed the libraries I used the defualt options
and sometimes I had to say LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib/ ./configure
my only theory of why it doesn't work is because some libraries are installed in different places so no matter which way it is configured it misses out on some libraries. does that make sense?
anyway, I'm going to screw around with it some more.
I appreciate everyones help

rpm -e gaim-0.80-0mdk10.0.i586.rpm [enter]
And install the one that is correct for your distro.
You can install Gaim by apt-get RPM or just go as root:
And look for it in the Multimedia section. Once installed, upgrade your whole system using either apt, yum or up2date, and Gaim should work as desired.

so I added it to my .bash_profile and now everything seems to be working.
on one hand the stuff I have installed works now so I don't want to screw with it.
the other hand sometimes the ./configure wouldn't work if I did LD_lib... because it would find 2 different versions of gtk, so I'm thinking that that might cause problems later.
