    installing enlightenment from rpm

    I'm running RH 7.3 with KDE at the moment, but I want to get enlightenment installed. I downloaded the rpm and tried to install it with rpm -i package.rpm. When I did this, I got the error:

    error: failed dependencies:
    fnlib >= 0.5 is needed by enlightenment-0.16.5-1
    libFnlib.so.0 is needed by enlightenment-0.16.5-1

    I installed fnlib from the tarball I downloaded from enlightenment.org, and I still get the error.

    libFnlib.so.0 is currently sitting in /usr/local/lib. I ran ldconfig and ldconfig -n /usr/local/lib but I keep getting the same error about needing that file. What am I missing?

    hello,
    did you install the libs from RPMs? if not then throw a --nodeps and see what happens.

    Re:installing enlightenment from rpm

    I did that, and it installed the rpm (with no errors). I added "exec enlightenment" to .xinitrc, stopped X and restarted it with "startx".

    Now, the error I'm getting is:
    enlightenment: error while loading shared libraries: libFnlib.so.0: cannot open shared object file: no such file or directory

    My biggest difficulty with linux has always been shared libraries. What am I missing?

    Thanks.

    Try putting a link to it in both /lib and /usr/lib, then run ldconfig again.

    or edit the file /etc/ld.so.conf and add /usr/local/lib and then run ldconfig

    You have any idea how easy it is to make an rpm? Heh,.. Maybe I should write something on that subject for these simple source packages.

    Re:installing enlightenment from rpm

    Thanks for the help.

    Now, can anyone tell me how to kill the X server without restarting the computer with Red Hat 7.3? I hit ctrl-alt-backspace and it just logs me out.

    Also, I can't find anything in the rcX.d that stops X from starting automatically when the computer boots up.

    I miss debian. Stupid coworker, installing redhat, then insisting I do to for "consistency" then quitting.

    to have X not start up edit /etc/inittab and change the id:5:initdefault: to id:3:initdefault: that puts you in runlevel 3, start up tasks are in /etc/rc3.d , right now you are most likey in /etc/rc5.d


    ctrl+alt+bkspc restarts the X server - hit ctrl+alt+F1 to drop to a console, ctrl+alt+F7 to go back to xwindows.

    I just wanted to say thanks again for the help.

    I got slammed at work, and wasn't able to do what you suggested until just now, and now I'm running enlightenment! Woohoo!
