Guest almigi Posted October 10, 2009 Report Share Posted October 10, 2009 (edited) I was reading in the October issue of Linux Format the Seven Cool Linux Projects article, and I became intrigued by Gnome Inform, which is an IDE for the Inform 7 language. The article stated from the project's page on SourceForge includes binaries for most popular Linux distros. This was not the case. :) From the SourceForge page, I went to the project's official page, (http://inform7.com), and found packages for Ubuntu, Fedora, and Arch. Of course there is the option to download and compile the code from scratch. However, I'm somewhat of a novice when it comes to compiling source from scratch. I know the standard routine of "./configure, make, and make install" and I also read README and INSTALL files that come in any archive. When I tried to ./configure I was presented a list of missing packages. However, many of these packages I could not find in the Mandriva repositories. So, my questions are: 1. Does anyone know where I can get an RPM for Gnome Inform 7 that works on Mandriva 2009 Spring? Or, 2. Have you successfully compiled Gnome Inform from source and have gotten it to run under Mandriva? If so, can you please go over the necessary steps and what files libraries to install? Thank you. Edited October 10, 2009 by almigi Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
