More LINUX woes
« on: April 27, 2006, 07:40:17 pm »
I'm running Red Hat EL3, which should be more or less equivalent with Fedora Core 3.

I've installed wxGTK which required wxGTK-xrc, so that was also installed.  A couple of library updates later, I install CodeBlocks RC2.  When run, I get an error dialog saying, "Something terrible has happened and CodeBlocks will be closed."  Obviously a paraphrase, but the take home message is that I get a core dump.

So, can I not run on EL3?  Any tips?

Hello,

May be you can give a try with a nightly build (FC4+5 RPM package). RC2 is old now.

Best wishes,
Michael

For the Fedora Core 4+5 package you need wxGTK 2.6. I don't know whether there is a wxGTK 2.6 package for FC3 (I did a quick search, but found none :( )
Nightly builds for openSUSE

Hello,

You can always try to build wxGTK by yourself :). See here for a bit of info:

Yeah, that thought had crossed my mind.  At this point I'm not sure if I'm brave enough to try and build it on my own.  :shock:  Thanks for the response, though.

Hello,

I think that it would be a useful experience :). It should not be too difficult anyway.

Best wishes,
Michael

That was painful.
