    Problem building Xchat 2.6.0

    I looked around and couldn't find an answer to this question...

    I have tried compiling this program however I can ./configure fine but when I make install it gets to this point. These are the last few lines of my output in the Terminal.

    I'm running Suse 10.0, KDE Enviornment and I have installed the GCC packages from the CDs.

    gcc -g -O2 -Wall -pipe -Wno-pointer-sign -funsigned-char -o xchat about.o ascii.o banlist.o chanlist.o chanview.o dccgui.o editlist.o fe-gtk.o fkeys.o gtkutil.o ignoregui.o menu.o maingui.o mmx_cmod.o notifygui.o palette.o pixmaps.o plugingui.o rawlog.o search.o servlistgui.o setup.o textgui.o urlgrab.o userlistgui.o xtext.o -Wl,--version-script -Wl,./../version-script -Wl,--export-dynamic ../common/libxchatcommon.a -L/usr/X11R6/lib -L/opt/gnome/lib /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /usr/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /opt/gnome/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ /usr/lib/ -lXrender -lX11 -lXext -lpng12 -lz /usr/lib/ -lm -ldl /opt/gnome/lib/

    Lightbulb Solution!

    I had the same problem and I fixed it by doing this:
    1. Open up src/version-script in emacs or equivalent
    2. Completely remove the part that says "EXPORTED" (but leave the curly brace)
    3. cd to the root of the xchat source tree
    4. run make clean (important)
    5. run make
    6. run su -c "make install" and type in your root password

    Hope this helps
