Newtlib ist installed but compiling failed

Post by clemenshofer » Sun Jan 28, 2007 8:29 am

I wanted to compile the stable partimage-0.6.5 on my debian system.
So I installed all libraries and made ./configure.
However I got an error message "libnewt not found".

But libnewt-0.51 is already installed on my system.
Has anybody an idea, what that could be?
Why can compiling fail, when I have all libraries installed?

The dev package must be missing. On several distributions, you need both package.rpm and packagedev.rpm (libnewtdev or something like this)
