I want to install inkscape on my comp, and when I try to build it, it complains that it can't find libgc (Boehm's garbage collector).
So I go off to the gc site, download the program, and start compiling. I successfully did ./configure, make, make check, and make install, but then I don't know what to do. The instructions say 'Link against <dir>/lib/libgc.a or <dir>/lib/libgc.so.' but I have no idea what that means.
I'm using Mandriva 10.1.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone could help me on this! Thanks in advance.
Nevermind my last post. I just decided that I'll go for the rpm instead.
It still kinda sucks that I can't compile it on my comp, but I guess that's just because of my old distro.
