Re: popt Isn't Quite Right
look in configure and see where it is trying to find popt. maybe its
looking in the wrong place?

I am trying to install some software that needs the popt
libraries. A poster on another list said I needed popt-dev which I
found and installed with no change in the results. This system has
had libpopt0 all along and got popt-dev last night with no effect. A
little piece of the configure log for that software reads as follows:
configure:21695: checking for main in -lpopt
configure:21719: g++ -o conftest -g -O2 conftest.cc -lpopt >&5
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lpopt
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
configure:21725: $? = 1
configure: failed program was:
| /* confdefs.h. */
I'm fresh out of popt's and still getting that fatal error.
This is a sarge distribution.
Thank you very much.
