My Goal: I want to test 0.6.3 in Ubuntu 10.04 so as to verify if ayttm indeed supports Yahoo webcam
What I tried:
1) Install from repository.
#result: 0.6.3 is not yet available
#help-me: make it avaiable in the repository
2) Debianize the provided RPM download with alien
#result: alien says something like the rpm is insufficient
#help-me: provide a deb package for debian users
3) Install from source, tar.gz
#result: upon running ./configure, it made me install flex, byacc which I did, and then when it's time for enchant it says this: No package 'enchant' found. Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix. blah blah about ENCHANT_CFLAGS blah.
#help-me: I know I have libenchant installed, well apt says so. So why is configure looking for enchant?
So to anyone who would like to help me, those are the three options I can think of.
And to the developers, even if I can't run your masterpiece (yet?), you already are doing a great job. Keep it up.
