    I am currently running Mandrake 7 and am having
    problems installing screem from a src.rpm package. When
    the package enters into the configure stage I get the
    error "Could not fing the gnomeConf.sh file that is
    generated by gnome-libs install. I am running Gnome in
    X-windows so I would assume that the librarys should be
    installed. But if they are not where could I get them?

    You haven't got the gnome-libs-devel (or whatever mandrake
    calls it) installed.

    However there is a 0.3.0 rpm for mandrake floating around, a
    quick search on google or with rpmfind should locate it and
    may be easier for you to use than a src rpm

    ok, I just installed Helix Gnome so I have the most updated
    versions of all the devel libraries etc. And the gnome
    libriaries works now. Now the hang up is the GTK+ libs. For
    some reason it can't compile or link to the version part of
    the config. I ran the config and get 0.9.0 so I know the
    version is fine. How do I get around this?

    Mandrake 7.2 now has an rpm of screem 0.3.0 which you could
    install if you are still having problems... if you are still
    interested in using screem that is :-)
