Installation problems FC4 (failed dependencies)
« on: August 03, 2006, 10:21:59 pm »
Hi,

i'm a first time CB user and don't have much Linux experience either...

I tried installing CB_20060802_rev2803_fc4+5.rpm and got these error messages:

error: Failed dependencies:

I build wxGTK 2.6.3 from the sources, it compiled fine, and i could compile and run the wxWidgets samples.
I ran "make", "make install" and "ldconfig" after the build.
The above libs all exist with the exact filename in /usr/local/lib/

I have no idea what to do now.

The problem is that RPM doesn't know that you installed wxGTK manually, so it's not installed for it ;)

Why don't you use the wxGTK package out of the extras repository ? Selfcompiling should be the very last option :!:

Perhaps you have to activate the repository, but the repository is preconfigured and usable by yum on every fedora installation.  :)
One way installing wxGTK is opening a terminal (konsole/gnome-terminal/xterm/...) and running yum as root:
Code: [Select]
sudo yum --enablerepo=extras install wxGTKThis activates the repository only for this time. In graphical frontends like kyum or yumex should be a checkbox to activate the repository.

Thanks for your answer.

Now i used "--nodeps" and forced rpm to install CB. When i start CB now, it complains about a non-matching build of the wxWidgets libraries. Guess i have to build CB from sources, too :)

I only found a source package for the old RC2 version, are the latest sources only available through SVN?

Using --nodeps is no good idea. It deactivates what RPM is made for (check dependencies).

I think the best way is to delete your selfcompiled wxGTK installation, install wxGTK out of the extras repository and then reinstall codeblocks. That's the most safe and clean way ;)

But though I'll answer your question. Building codeblocks from the sources is described in the wiki: Category:Installing Code::Blocks from source
If you want to have an RPM package as result go to Installing Code::Blocks from source on RPM based distributions
