I did not know about the possible need for -devel packages if the
dependencies were not fully met.
I feel better knowing that.
I have not been lurking in this mail list for few days :( I've just saw
your problems with faxing. I wrote the guide Istavan refers to and I
believe you are trying to implement. If you follow every steps exactly
as written you should not have a problem with the installation.
If you do please post the details and I hope I can help you. I tried
many different solutions and this is the one that for me has worked the
In general terms, installing rpm designed for the distro and version is
the easy way to install. Installing rpms packages for other distros or
even other versions of the OS is a prescription for problems not only
with the program as well in other areas that you do not expect.
Installing from source is very easy, it just take few more minutes
because you have to be sure the dependencies are there. Again using yast
or smart you can install some of the dependencies if you need it (in few
cases they may not be available and you will have to installing from
source). I am talking in general terms, yes, in some cases is a pain....
But that's not the case with efax.
I can send you the rpm created by checkinstall but, they are not very
robust and they are not make for distribution. If you follow the step by
step of the guide you should be able to install the whole thing in less
than half hour.
Note: I assume you have a modem. I assume the modem is an external modem
or an internal complete modem (no window model). If it is a windows
model then the problem can get a little more complicated. This has
nothing to do with the efax-gui program.
