    Default drm depedency: libqwt.so.4

    openSUSE 10.3.
    I try to install the product drm (Digital Radio Mondiale radio receiver).
    It is available in the Packman repo. But it wants libqwt.so.4 (I think that belongs to product libqwt4), which is not in the repos.
    There is libqwt5, but I do not know if this is something different, or a new vesion of libqwt4. And when it is a new version, can it be used as a replacement for libqwt4 and how to do this.

    Any suggestions, this is dark area for me

    Hi
    It shows you how to build the libqt4 library here;
    http://drm.sourceforge.net/installationrpm.html

    You could also try installing libqt5 and then making a softlink, but I
    think if you follow the above it should work.

    Well I looked earlier at the page you gave me and missed the bit aboute libqwt. I think because I thought that when an RPM for the product is available everything should be available as an RPM in the same (or another) repo. So I have to revert to more primitive methods anyhow.

    I tried installing libqwt5 and making the symbolic link, but the application gave an error about the wrong size of a symbol.

    Thanks for taking the trouble answering me. I will go and try to follow the page you gave me.

    Hi
    They provide the src rpm there as well, even quicker to use;
    Code:
    rpmbuild --rebuild <name_of_src_rpm>

    Hello Malcom,

    I do not know if you ever installed drm this way. I downloaded qwt-4.2.0.tar.bz2 and run the rpmbuild --rebuild on it. It started hopefully, but ended in not being able to find tmake.

    Could not find out if it is part of e repo product. After some googling I found it on Sourceforge and downloaded. Could not find any installation instructions, but there is a bin directory. I added this to my PATH. Now the rpmbuild runs until it can not find /bin/moc. Is this the Music on Console that I found via Sourceforge? Looks strange to me that this is hardcoded as being in /bin.

    In short it seems that I am being lured deeper and deeper into the primitive old days of generating and installing by doing everything by hand . Or am I too pessimistic?

    Hi
    Hmmmm, looks that way. I don't have a 10.3 machine..... I could build a
    VM are you using 32 or 64 bit?
    moc is here;
    http://download.opensuse.org/reposit...openSUSE_10.3/

    I use http://rpm.pbone.net/ and http://software.opensuse.org/search for
    searching and like to build any I find from the source rpms....

    I just found that moc via webpin.

    I also must admit that I do not know much about drm. I try to lure a friend of mine into Linux (openSUSE of course), and drm belongs to his hobby. It is a rather small system we are using now and installing using YaST is a real pain. As moc is about sound, the first thing I now will do is making it 'sound ready' by doing what 'restricted formats' asks us to do

    Then I will add moc and see what happens. May take some time before I am back with a report.

    BTW I still can not find that 'source RPM'. I can find source RPMs for the other products that must be there, but these where already installed by YaST as dependencies. And doing rpmbuild on those RPMs only add to the bewildering number of products that are missing!

    And, before I forget, it is a "GenuineIntel Pentium II (Deschutes) with speed 331.710 MHz and cache size 512 KB" and thus 32bit.

    Regards,
    Henk van Velden

    Thanks, it is now knacking around loading codecs and libxine etc.
    After that I will use your links. But the end of the day is coming here. So you here from me tomorrow.

    Until then many thanks

    The building of libqwt4 stucks on tmake not found. I found it somewhere, it did not install propperly, but I found the program and added its place to the PATH. Now the building runs further until it can not find /bin/moc. Now such an absolute path seems strange to me. I tried to find something about moc and found Music on Console, but that was not the right product.

    Further investigation let me install qt4-devel. It delivers /usr/bin/moc. After makeing a symbolic link fron /bin/moc the building runs even further!

    Until it comes with a bunch errors like:
    Code:
    g++: src/obj/qwt_autposcl.o: No such file or directory
    This all seems to be far away from 'One Click Install'
