    Eterm and Slack9

    Grr. I have installed libast, yet when I do ./configure I get this:
    checking for libast-config... libast-config
    checking for libast_malloc in -last... no
    ERROR: You need LibAST 0.5 or higher to build Eterm. If you already have it,
    you may have it installed in a strange place, or you may need to run
    /sbin/ldconfig. If you don't have it, I can download it for you.
    Shall I retrieve and build LibAST now (y/n)?
    n

    Grr. Any ideas?

    Is it possible to allow it to download for you?

    Re:Eterm and Slack9

    Hmm, I ran /sbin/ldconfig, and then I get a new error..

    checking for imlib_create_image in -lImlib2... no
    configure: warning: *** Pixmap support has been disabled because Imlib2 was not
    found ***
    configure: warning: *** or could not be linked. Eterm should still work
    configure: warning: *** not be very happy. Check config.log for more detailed
    ***
    configure: warning: *** information on why my attempt to link with Imlib2 failed
    Ok, it carried on, and libast finished..
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    Libraries have been installed in:
    /usr/local/lib

    If you ever happen to want to link against installed libraries
    in a given directory, LIBDIR, you must either use libtool, and
    specify the full pathname of the library, or use the `-LLIBDIR'
    flag during linking and do at least one of the following:
    - add LIBDIR to the `LD_RUN_PATH' environment variable
    during linking
    - use the `-Wl,--rpath -Wl,LIBDIR' linker flag
    - have your system administrator add LIBDIR to `/etc/ld.so.conf'

    See any operating system documentation about shared libraries for
    more information, such as the ld(1) and ld.so(8) manual pages.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    and then I get
    checking for libast-config... (cached) libast-config
    configure: error: Fatal: libast not found.

    make sure the directory that has lisast in it is listed properly in /etc/ld.so.conf - this means no trailing spaces or anything like that. an extra space in that file had me scratching my behind for a few days.

    Re:Eterm and Slack9

    It turns out both imlib and libast are in /usr/local/lib
    they are there. gr.

    edit:
    here is what is in my /etc/ld.so.conf
    /usr/local/lib
    /usr/X11R6/lib
    /usr/i386-slackware-linux/lib
    /opt/kde/lib
    /usr/lib/qt/lib

    Ok, I feel dumb about the whole imlib2 thing. I just realized I only have imlib-1.9.14. oops.

    Hmm. It didn't like -O2. I got imlib2 installed, oh joy. But libast is still giving me troubles. Any ideas?

    Re:Eterm and Slack9

    Oh duh. I did ./configure --with-libast=/usr/local/lib and that got it working. haha. I feel dumb now. Thank you pbharris and stryder144.

    Re:Eterm and Slack9

    Try adding the path were libast is installed, to /etc/ld.so.conf. After that, run ldconfig again.
