If anyone knows why, here is what happens.

I am trying to compile it, but can't get past ./configure, mainly
because of the readlines, it gives me the error message that they
weren't found in the normal dir (usr/local or whatever) and so I tried
specifying where they are which is
/home/delerak/tintin++/src/readline

I did
./configure --includedir=/home
--libdir=/home/delerak/tintin++/src/readline

I've tried many other variations of this but it always comes up saying
it can't find the readlines. And I can't move them to usr/local. What
can I do? I am also doing a make clean after each attempt to configure, and I've even gone into the src and edited where it looks for files in tintin.h and a few other places, but I don't know what's wrong with this s**** anymore.

The configure script doesn't actually invoke your compiler at any point (well, except when it tests the compiler), so doing a make clean or editing the source does absolutely nothing.

Why not post the configure output, it'll help if we can see what you see.

And ... tintin++

Try mcl.

i would like to have tintin at home too, but i couldnt find any decent rpm or deb around, and trying to compile made me sick (as usualy with non standartized programmas who is not maintainet for long time) maybe there is some link with rpm, or with tgz wich would be up to date and tested on rh.90 or mdk ?

You don't expect anyone to know about this stuff? =)

It's just telling you that it can't find libreadline.a. If that's not found on your system (do "find / -name libreadline.a" to see if it is), you should install it. Looks like you're running RedHat, so go install the readline RPM from your install CD. If that's already installed or it doesn't help you, install readline-devel too. That should cover it.

No debs? tintin is in all the standard Debian sources. Try "apt-cache search tintin", you'll find it.

I run kmuddy though =).

Just reading your configure logs, I see another thing:

This means that you definitely need readline-devel, not just readline.

Hah, thanks again Yui. I didn't think you were still around. Good you are though, I'm gonna install those readline sources now.

Alright, I'm actually running mandrake 9.1, I think it's the latest, and when I go into the RPMs on cd 1 it has one readline file and if I try to install it says it's already installed. I can't find a readline-devel though.

Ahh, the -devel rpms might be on the second cd for Mandrake.

But you can download it from the mirror here, just wget ftp://mandrake.mirrors.pair.com/mandrak....586.rpm. That ought to do the trick!

I use Tinyfugue on Redhat. Works great! Been using it for years and years, so maybe its out of date (don't think its been upgraded in awhile).

Re: tintin++

I know powwow is also in the debian apt-cache, it seems pretty good, I've not used it much though

Re: tintin++

It is hard to imagine not being able to compile tintin, the thing installs smoothly even on cygwin (Windows based *nix) without any messing around with the source either. I have used tintin on and off for a long time too, never really had a problem (other than backwards compatibility when I update to newer versions )

This was years ago. Why are people replying to this?

I was a retard on linux back then that's why I couldn't get it to work. Plus Mandrake was crap back then.

Re: tintin++

Readline still causes problems on countless platforms.

On the bright side, tintin++ no longer uses the readline library. So now even the biggest linux retards can run the greatest mud client in existence... only to delete it after being stumped by its intricate interface.
