Fedora Core 3 and Inkscape
O/S: Fedora Core 3
The repository (yum) version of Inkscape is 0.39
The latest Inkscape does not seem to be forthcoming as a binary for Fedora.
I have tried the autopackage and I get this error when I run inkscape:
inkscape: /usr/bin/../lib/libpng12.so.0: no version information available (required by inkscape)
inkscape: /usr/bin/../lib/libstdc++.so.6: version `GLIBCXX_3.4.4' not found (required by inkscape)
I have sought these things in yum, but have not had much luck.
I tried to compile from source. Ouch. The dependencies are overwhelming and I will have to compile them from source too! It's too confusing for me.
Now, I am not an expert, just a designer who wants to use his favourite tool! On Windows I can install the 0.44 version no problem, seems ironic that it cannot be so on Linux.
Any suggestions? Perhaps a wiki page to help twits like me through these situations?
