Do the WindowMaker RPMs work with Red Hat 6.0?

Post by Fulton B. Gonzale » Fri, 21 May 1999 04:00:00

I just installed Red Hat 6 on one of my machines, and for the life of me, I just
can't get WindowMaker 0.53 to compile.  (The funny thing is, it compiles on my
other two RH 6 machines.)   So I'm going to try my hand at using the rpms from
Freshmeat.  Are there any issues I should be aware of prior to upgrading Red
Hat's version with the Freshmeat rpm?  Does the Freshmeat rpm install into the
WindowMaker-recommended directories or into the Red Hat-installed directories
for WindowMaker?

1. Red Hat 7.1 - Installing Red Hat packages after Red Hat is already installed.

How can I install packages that I forgot to install with the Red Hat
7.1 installation?

Here's my problem:
Various pieces of Red Hat keep saying that I am missing a file and
that it needs to be installed with a certain package (namely most of
the Kontrol Panel).  But I have been unsuccessful at finding where
this is done.  I am still a newbie with Linux, but I would assume that
there should be an "Add/Remove Programs" equivalent with Linux.

Please help!
