Suse 9.0

One of the challenges with Suse 9.0 is the lack of a distro provided gtkmm2 and libsigc++ packages.

Best place to find them: [ This URL does not exist anymore :-( ]

Suse 9.1 includes both now in the GNOME supplemental downloads.

Note that for SuSE the gtk+2 packages are called gtk2. The gtk+2 2.4 package is not provided via Yast but can be found via rpmseek as gtk2 and gtk2-devel

To find the .pc files, I had to set:

setenv PKG_CONFIG_PATH /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/opt/gnome/lib/pkgconfig/

In SuSE 9.1 I ran into this error: required file `./' not found

Copying /usr/share/libtool/ into the top directory fixed it.

For 0.40cvs the libgc dependency is added. In SuSE 9.1 this is package 'boehm-gc', but it doesn't work - you need to compile from source. Download from:

Then configure it with the command:

  $ ./configure --enable-cplus-plus

SuSE 9.1 also does not have libsigc++ 2.0; I couldn't find an rpm for it so ended up having to compile it from source, from

I also had to compile gtkmm 2.4 and glib 2.4 from source; download them from and

Looks like these packages are also available from here:

Also, stuff got installed to /opt/gnome/bin/, so I had to also `export PATH=$PATH:/opt/gnome/bin/`
