thanks for the information. sourceforge.net is not reachable to me
now, so my apologies if this is explained there. However, the info
above is not complete for Red Hat 9: I could not install those RPMs
because glib (and maybe something else) is missing on the system.
I am not blaming anybody for this, but it seems evident to me that a
mini-howto about "Installing AbiWord 2.x on a BAREBONE Red Hat 9
/Fedora box" is needed. I'm talking of ONE single page, or paragraph saying
"the abiword RPM is this, and to install *this* version on base Red
Hat 9 without Gnome, just X, you need:
this version of enchant, RPM is here
this version of glib, RPM is here
This is all the more needed because RPMs for those packages and RH9 do
exist, but are scattered here and there, and not listed in the usual
places (www.rpmfind.net to begin with). Only googling and guessing is
I am willing to put together this mini-howto for the Abiword web
pages, but I need all developers help to figure out which version of
what is needed, and to make an RPM of it if it doesn't exist yet.
The last part means "I'll build RPMs with the spec file you
provide/help me to write, and report here any fault until it works"
Any feedback is appreciated.
