problems installing/running klibido/uudeview
Hi. I should preface this message with a mention that I am a noob of only a week or so and haven't really had a good chance to read books yet, don't have the money to buy them.
I was having problems installing Klibido, a Usenet Newsgrabber that handles yEnc.
On that site is the link to the required UUDeview also.
I couldn't get the install to work for a long time until I found RPMs of UUDeview so that I could install the RPM of Klibido. It seems that SuSE 9.3, my distro, wants the support library UUDeview as an RPM for it to be "seen". I don't understand why, but I did it.
Finally, the install took place and completed just fine,
Whenever I tried to run Klibido and deal with my newsgroups, it would crash.
So I uninstalled it and now I am trying to re-install them both again via compiling BOTH. The compile and install of UUDeview seemed to go fine, but when I try compiling (running ./configure) for the klibido process I get an error:
configure: error: Error: uudeview.h not found!
So I can't go into Make.
Also, the whole reason for doing a compile install is because there is a patch, but I don't know for sure how and when to apply the patch. Do I ./configure then Make, then apply the patch, then do make install?
Can you guys kindly help me on this one? I have searched for stuff on this. I need a newsgrabber that can handle yEnc files in KDE, and this looks like the only candidate... :cry:
