    Apollon


    I searched on Sourceforge for a Linux compatible kazaa client and found Apollon. I also saw that it had an all in one installer so I downloaded it thinking that life would be easy. After unzipping the file I entered the new directory and ran the install.sh. First it asked me where I wanted to have the program installed and recommended either /usr or /usr/local. I chose /usr. Then it states that the application is being unpacked followed by a line that says Compiling giFT. It fails the compilation and I get this error:

    Code:
    libltdl support is temporarily required.  Please install the appropriate
    library and header files (which includes the -dev package).  See config.log
    for more details.
    Now when it asked me for this library I looked on my Mandrake install disk for the .RPM. I found that this library was already installed to

    Code:
    /usr/lib/libltdl.so.3
    /usr/lib/libltdl.so.3.1.0
    /usr/share/doc/libltdl3-1.4.3
    /usr/share/doc/libltdl3-1.4.3/README
    I changed my $PATH variable to include these directories.

    Code:
    export PATH=$PATH:/usr/lib:/usr/share/doc
    I still get the above error about libltdl however. Can anyone shed some light onto this?[/code]

    I don't think I have that one but I searched my installation CDs and on the internet and I couldn't find those libraries.

    libldtl* belongs to the libtool libraries.. make sure that you have libtool and libtool-devel installed

    Ok I got libtools off the internet and reinstalled them and got past the part I was originally stuck at. Now a new problem has arisen. While I'm running ./configure for Apollon I get this:

    Code:
    checking for Qt... configure: error: Qt (>= Qt 3.1 (20021021)) (headers and libraries) not found. Please check your installation!
    I know Qt is installed because I spent an hour compiling and installing it. But I can't make the ./configure see it.

    did you check that the version of QT is >=3.1?? also, make sure that you have the QT *development* package installed.. that is what contains the header files and such that configure is looking for...

    I have version 3.3. I went and installed the x11-free version of Qt 3.3. It still doesn't work. Is there a configuration file I should look for? What about an evnironment variable?

    the package should be something like qt-<version>-devel-i386.rpm or whatever.. it will have the word "devel" in it.. the *development* packages are where all of the *headers* are...

    I didn't use a .rpm file, I compiled from source. I'll try to find an rpm.

    I give up. Installing this isn't worth all the trouble it's causing.
