UPDATE : GAP on Fedora 18
The above should work on Fedora 18, i think, if you do it accurately... If you are not me... An do not complicate life as it is...
I'm writing it for all who might have problems with reading and understanding... Like me...
I had some problems installing GAP on Fedora 18. I used a pack that is listed above - gimp-gap-2_7-F17-Patched.tar.bz2.
So after unpacking, as there is, i couldn't run the ./configure (no install.sh or something) so carelessly I've run ./autogen.sh.
Then ./configure. Ok, fine.
Then make... and we have :
(...)undefined reference to symbol 'exp@@GLIBC_2.2.5'
/usr/bin/ld: note: 'exp@@GLIBC_2.2.5' is defined in DSO /lib64/libm.so.6 so try adding it to the linker command line
/lib64/libm.so.6: could not read symbols: Invalid operation
when it gets to gap folder to do the make. Yes, inteligent. Now i know... No libm.so.6 linked in the Makefile... So.. as root i tried to ad -lm to GIMP_LIBS = @GIMP_LIBS@ as listed above but not in Makefile.in but just Makefile. Did not work... Do not now why. Searched the Web, came to conclusion, and did somthing like this :
as root :
gedit Makefile - IN THE gap folder (not the Makefile.in, as after autogen.sh and trying to do the make it's no use - i think, correct me if I'm wrong)
Search for :
LINK = $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) $(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@
and change it to :
LINK = $(CCLD) $(AM_CFLAGS) $(CFLAGS) -lm $(AM_LDFLAGS) $(LDFLAGS) -o $@
then make in the gimp-gap folder... Works fine... Then make-install... and we're home...
Do not know if it's stable enough. Only opened one file and checked if preview works... It did. Maybe my post will be useful for someone...
