I do have another question, re: the Perl plugin though. When trying to compile it it says that it can't find gimp when it tries to run the test program:
checking for GIMP - version >= 2.0.0... no *** Could not run GIMP test program, checking why... *** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means *** that the run-time linker is not finding GIMP or finding the wrong *** version of GIMP. If it is not finding GIMP, you'll need to set your *** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point *** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that *** is required on your system *** *** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although *** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH configure: error: ** unable to find gimp, make sure it's in your path (version 1.3.15+ required!)
I tried putting the location of the gimp binary into ld.so.conf and the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable, but no joy. What is the story here? Was I supposed to put the location of a library in the path variable? Something else entirely? Anyone have any solutions?
Please read up on ld (man ld). You will need to configure the location of the gimp libraries, not the executable.
Ok, thanks for the pointer to the documentation. The warning message in the configure log was a little opaque for my (lack of) softare compiling skills.
Unfortunately, I guess I spoke too soon about the successful gimp2.0.1 install. The next day my whole system melted down and stopped functioning. I did a hardware reset and it crashed completely before it got past the x login screen.
I did a complete reinstall of the root partition and tried to figure out if it was some mistake I made in compiling the various libraries and plugins or if it was one of the RPMs that I used.
BTW, I am not running a vanilla rh 9.0 installtion here, but the Planet CCRMA digital audio sub-distro w/ low latency kernel, etc. The CCRMA install and configure followed the basic shrike install, updates with the rh and ccrma rpms -- everything running smoothly to this point.
Then I installaed xach's update rpms. I noticed a couple of glitches in gnome, though it was basically functioning. In an attempt to isolate the problem I decided to reboot before adding any other software . The system crashed before it could shutdown cleanly so the trouble msut be some conflict between xach's rpms and either the CCRMA modifications or the basic Shrike installation.
When I have more time (three reinstalls in 2 days, ugh) I will free up some room on the HDD and make a separate partition for a vanilla rh 9.0 installation and try to upgrade that with xachs's RPMs and then compile gimp2.0.1. For now I guess I am back to using gimp1.2.3.
