SuSE 10.0: Reading .chm files

From FVue
Jump to: navigation, search

Problem

No reader for .chm files is available on SuSE 10.0.

Solution

Install xChm. This needs installed:

  • wxWidgets
  • CHMLIB

And I had to do:

ln -s /usr/local/lib/libchm.so.0 /usr/lib/libchm.so.0

Installed xChm. Needs wxWidgets, installed wxWidgets with YaST.

./configure complains about missing wx-config. Commands

cd /local/install/SuSE-10.0/suse/i586
rpm -q -p wxGTK-devel-2.6.1.0-4.i586.rpm -l | grep wx-config

reveals wx-config is provided by this package. Installed manually:

sudo rpm -i wxGTK-gl-2.6.1.0-4.i586.rpm
sudo rpm -i wxGTK-devel-2.6.1.0-4.i586.rpm

./configure complains

configure: error: Can't find the CHMLIB header.

Read README. Installed CHMLIB.

Running xchm gives error:

xchm: error while loading shared libraries: 
libchm.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Found solution in this thread:

sudo ln -s /usr/local/lib/libchm.so.0 /usr/lib/libchm.so.0
