I'm having trouble compiling Eterm. I'm using the 0.9.2 tar.gz package. During ./configure, I get this error:
ERROR: You need LibAST 0.5 or higher to build Eterm. If you already have it, you may have it installed in a strange place, or you may need to run /sbin/ldconfig. If you don't have it, I can download it for you. Shall I retrieve and build LibAST now (y/n)?
I have libast 0.5 installed in /usr/local/include. How can I point eterm to see libast?
BTW, I ran /sbin/ldconfig - didn't help
why are you trying to compile it? why not just install the arch package?
I am not your friend
I'm still very new to Arch, so bear with me a second.
Originally I tried "pacman -S eterm" and was told the package doesn't exist in the database. So I moved on to compile it.
According to sarah31's reply, I'm obviously missing something basic here, so feel free to point me in the right direction
OK I figured it out. I wasn't aware of the download pkg.tar.gz/pacman -A method. Thanks for the heads up
