    make did not succeed on Fedora core 3
    (on RH 9 it went fine).
    I started this thread to ask for help but continued working as I posted.  Now I think I have the solution.  Hope it helps someone: 
    Some packages do not install intuitively via the GUI
    See Compile thread in this forum.
    I checked if packages were installed with
    rpm -q <package> 
    You do not need the version in the package name  to see if it is installed
    examples:
    rpm -q gtk+
    rpm -q gtk+-devel

    I found the packages below on the CDs under the RPMS directory and installed those that were not on my system.  packETH then compiled just fine.

    gtk+-1.2.10-33
    gtk+-1.2.10-33
    glib-1.2.10-15
    glib-devel-1.2.10-15
    gtk+-devel-1.2.10-33
    (this one might be overkill)
    gdk-pixbuf-0.22.0-15.0
    (I think the rest of these were already installed)
    gtk2-2.4.13-9
    glib2-2.4.7-1
    glib2-devel-2.4.7-1
    gtk2-devel-2.4.13-9

    If someone could check me to trim this list down to actual minimum requirements, I'm sure it would help others.

    Best Regards,

      Thanks for the comment. I didn't yet try it on Fedora 3, thus I don't have any expirience with it. I hope to find some time in the near future to post an updated release and solve this kind of questions as well.

      Greets,

      I ended up reloading fedora core 3 (Custom load with development and library packages).  When complete, I had all above except gtk+-devel and glib-devel installed.  packETH make did not succeed.  I loaded these 2 and packETH installed fine.  The 2 devel packages are in the ...fedora/RPM directory on disc 4 from the downloadable ISO CD installation discs.

      Best Regards,
