    Installing xemacs under Mandrake 8.1

    Hi

    I'm trying to install xemacs on my linux machine to program C, Java etc. I tried following the install guide on the official site but I get this error:

    checking for dld_init in -ldld... no
    No module support.

    *** PANIC *** The C compiler can no longer build working executables.
    *** PANIC *** Please examine the tail of config.log for runtime errors.
    *** PANIC *** The most likely reason for this problem is that configure
    *** PANIC *** links with shared libraries, but those libraries cannot be
    *** PANIC *** found at run time.
    *** PANIC ***
    *** PANIC *** On a Linux system, edit /etc/ld.so.conf and re-run ldconfig.
    *** PANIC *** On other systems, try telling configure where to find the
    *** PANIC *** shared libraries using the --site-runtime-libraries option
    *** PANIC ***
    *** PANIC *** Another way to shoot yourself in the foot is to specify
    *** PANIC *** --with-FEATURE when FEATURE is not actually installed
    *** PANIC *** on your system. Don't do that.

    Anyone know what the deal is? I'm quite a linux n00b and don't really know what I'm doing, soooo... :P

    OUCH!!!!!!! Hum, you might want to reinstall Mandrake. Also, since you are using Mandrake, use packages to install Xemacs

    Yeah, if you're a "n00b" then RPMs are the way for the time being (Don't let that put you of compiling forever!).

    I'm fairly sure the xemacs rpm comes on the 8.1 cd

    I agree that RPM's are the way to go for the newbie, but for shits and giggles try reading the config.log file that should be in the directory where you built the package from...This should shed some more light on what went wrong. Also make sure that the path's to your library's are correct in the /etc/ld.so.conf file. If not, edit the file and run ldconfig and try to compile again. Or just install a RPM

    Guys, on a system that uses package managment the prefered way to install is by package, be it rpm or deb. That's the whole idea of package managment.

    And yes, XEmacs is on the 8.1 CDs.

    WHere are my libraries? I just installed Mandrake with default paths or whatever.

    If you use 'drakes RPM software manager, it will install any dependancys as well.

    you libarays are (should be) in:
    /lib/
    /usr/lib/
    /usr/local/lib/
    /usr/X11R6/lib/
    /var/lib/
