That probably means you don't have the rsvg library (librsvg?) installed, or have it installed in a place where gcc cannot find it.

It is a bit strange that ./configure did not flag this. What Linux distro are you using?

Can you post the output you get during ./configure ?

It seems that ./configure does not check for the rsvg plotting library. (Only for CAIRO.) This explains why the ./configure could succeed while you apparently don't have that library installed. This is to be considered a bug in the configure process. I will notify Arun Persaud of this, as he is the one that knows about such things. (My Linux knowledge is only scanty.)

Fixing this would not help you, though: it would only mean that you get an error message during configure that the library is missing (although hopefully a more informative one), rather than during compiling. (As you never getto do the latter, as no makefile will be produced.)

The only solution to your problem is to instal the rsvg library. On my Ubuntu I have the packages librsvg2-2 and librsvg2-dev installed.

BTW, note that it is better to build the GTK version, through adding the --with-gtk option to ./configure. (Both need librsvg, though.)

Thanks. I don't have much experience compiling on Linux.

I couldn't find the lrsvg-2. Is any librsvg2-2 and librsvg2-dev good for it? My computer doesn't have internet, so I can download only on public Windows computers. Sorry if this is not really an xboard problem.

If there is some other Linux where xboard compiles right after installing the operating system (and perhaps the compiling environment), without Linux internet connection, I could try that. Of course it would be nicer not to have separate operating systems for each program :)

I am also not a very experienced Linux user, but I thought that the basic installs never contain enough to compile anything. On Ubuntu not even the C compiler (gcc) is standard. To compile you will need the compiler (obviously), but also a large number of development support for libraries, depending on which libraries the program in question uses. The -lrsvg-2 against which gcc complains is a special case of -lXXX, specifying that the compiler should include routines in the library libXXX.a. So you would need the library librsvg-2.

I found and installed librsvg-2.40.9-i486-1.txz but still get errors, not found, undefinded reference etc.

Maybe it's a wrong library.

Is this the right place to solve the problem or should I go to some Linux forum?

It might be confusing but as you are compiling you are "developing" so to say.
You need to install an xxxx-dev package library like for instance "librsvg2-dev"

I couldn't find a librsvg2-dev for slackware (I don't know if it needs to be slackware).

Tried to join Puppy linux forum but couldn't, no confirmation and cannot log in.

I compiled Stockfish 6 without installing anything extra in addition to the compiling environment sfs file, and with no errors.

Perhaps I'm just out of luck with the problem. Thanks anyway.

I know next to nothing of slackware but isn't this it? : http://ftp.slackware.com/pub/cygwin/x86 ... vg2-devel/

anyway if that won't work:
If you just need a gtk xboard version:
I believe Jim Abblet build gtk versions on his chess distribution (probably not as recent as 4.8 )

Thanks!

I don't even know if Lighthouse Pup is slackware, but it is able to recognize and install slackware txz files.

Lighthouse Pup a 32-bit system, so is your link with "x86_64" ok? The address has cygwin subdirectory, isn't that for Windows software?

I cannot access the other site, it is blocked and categorized as malware site.

"URL: jimablett.net63.net/chess_755/chess-distros.html
Category: malware-sites"

It seems that I'm unable to register at the Puppy Linux Forum, which would probably be the right place for these questions.

Can you find it using "ppm" ?
It should be in the package that comes with puppy 5
http://www.diddywahdiddy.net/Puppy500/L ... p_Packages
...
librsvg2-2 2.26.2
librsvg2-bin 2.26.2
librsvg2-common 2.26.2
librsvg2-dev 2.26.2
...

Thanks for your help.

I found what seems to be(?) the official page for suitable packages, but the links don't work.

http://www.smokey01.com/bruceb/ibiblio_quirky.html

Quirky is set in the ppm, so I guess it should work, if the files were there. Bad luck.

I managed to find these:
http://puppylinux.ca/vintage/pet_packag ... 3-pup2.pet
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ibiblio/distributio ... 3-pup4.pet
http://puppylinux.ca/vintage/pet_packag ... 3-pup4.pet

Maybe the last one might work.The ftp sight is _very_ slow and the first is for an even older puppy version.
edit: Actually those links are librsvg-dev files not even librsvg2-dev :evil:
Otherwise you will just have to enter some puppy forum or email someone working on it.
There are enough rpm's,just not for puppy (http://rpmfind.net/linux/rpm2html/searc ... tem=&arch=)

I tried to register to a couple of forums and email their managers, but didn't have any success or even replies.

I wonder if this forum is a proper place to ask someone which linux without internet connection works for developing x-board? The description of "Winboard and related Topics" seems to fit that problem.
