Fedora Core 2 for Inkscape 0.40CVS

After having the most up to date RPMs for FC2 from fedora updates, this is what I found for compiling Inkscape.

Well...after checking out a clean copy of the inkscape module, will not generate, so I had to make a softlink to a copy of, which was located here: /usr/share/libtools/

So I ran:

  $ ln -s /usr/share/libtools/ ./

Then I ran:

  $ ./

Then to get all the makefiles, I ran:

  $ ./configure

Now need to have Boehm Garbage collector installed. Follow the Boehm Garbage Collector instructions on the CompilingInkscape page for this to work. After installed, then rerun:

  $ ./configure

For libsigc++2 currently you must download and install:

Now you need gtkmm 2.4 and glibmm 2.4:

You need to ./configure; make; make install for libsigc++, glibmm 2.4 and gtkmm 2.4

Afterwards update your paths and all that and then run ./; ./configure; make; make install on the CVS version of inkscape...

I don't think /usr/local/lib is in /etc/ or /etc/*.conf by default on FC2... Fix that, then `export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib`, then run `ldconfig`, and try running `inkscape`. -- Jizzbug

This is what i get now:

 *** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x0832ce78 ***
 Emergency save activated!

Fedora Core 3 and 0.41CVS
