Missing dependencies, can't compile
I really don't understand what is going on. This all started with an attempt to compile and install gdesklets. Although I had downloaded all of the dependencies and installed them I was getting missing depency errors (including ones i know i had installed). So, in an attempt to fix it more, I attempted to compile and isntall the latest GTK. I went to the GTK website, got all the dependencies did the "./configure, make, make install" on all of them, then attempted to run the GTK ./configure. Error! Missing libjpg, libpng, libtiff...all things i had JUST installed. So, i tried configuring without the three things, and then i got another error:
What can I do to fix this? I try a yum update, but that says I don't need anything (i'm only using livna).
configure: error: Xft version 2 is required for x11 target
HELP!!....fyi i'm using FC4.
