    Hi,

    Trying to compile on SUSE Enterprise Desktop 10 32-bit.  I have popt-1.7-271.4 installed, while ./configure reports Cannot find popt library, please consider installing it before installing gnubiff.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

      Hi,

      there is no check for the version of libpopt in the configure file. Perhabs you have only installed the library but not the development package of libpopt? This is needed for compiling gnubiff.

      CU Robert :-)

        Ahh, no I don't have the popt-devel package installed.  I will install it and have another go.

        Thanks.

      Ok, I got it working.  Here's what I had to install on SLED 10:

      -Install popt-devel from SLED installation source
      -Install gamin-0.1.5-5.i586.rpm from rpmfind.net (for openSUSE 10)
      -Install gamin-devel-0.1.5-5.i586.rpm from rpmfind.net (for openSUSE 10)
      -Install libglade2-devel from SLED installation source
      -Install fam-devel from SLED installation source

      Then it configured, and built just fine.  Thanks for the help.
