Also: What if gtk-config cannot be found (e.g. it's not available in SuSE 9.1 as they seem to use version 2.0)? I think, the installation of gtk (and - before that - glib) should at least be mentioned as a precondition.

B.t.w. - I had serious problems compiling 2 RC5 with wx 2.4, finally I moved to 2.5, compiling was fine (but only 2.00 rc5 - strange), but aMule hung during the startup. Got an error message that libqtpixmap.could not be found. Maybe qtpixmap is a precondition as well?

Finally - There's a typo in the src cryptolib installion. Instead of

cp *.h /usr/include/cyrptopp/

it should be

cp *.h /usr/include/cryptopp/

Hey - aMule hung because of something in the .aMule-directory I formerly used with 1.27. So whoever might have this problem and reads this:

mv ~/.aMule ~/aMule.bak

and start, this should work.

Check if that something in the ~/.aMule directory was ~/.aMule/clients.met ;-))
