Xft/GTK+ upgrade problem on Mandrake sparc 7.1

Post by osmin » Sat, 02 Oct 2004 03:39:36


an anyone share how to successfully install gtk+-2.4.9 on this old
mandrake distro? Thank you for any feedback/comments in advanced.

I have spent some hours trying to upgrade gtk on an old Ultra 5 - I'm
getting the following error when I try to compile gtk:
...
configure: error: Pango 1.2.0 and Xft backend is required for x11
target
...

I don't know what to make of this error I'm getting as I to install
Xft:

You will need pango installed on the system, think you will find it where you
can find gnome2.



Install a late version of Xfree or Xorg, and you will get Xft.
