Re: [Help-smalltalk] Trying to run browser...

Ok, so what is basically going on here is that the package maintainers for the various distributions may or may not have compiled in the browser, depending on whether or not they wanted to have the dependencies on tcl/tk or gtk.

So building it from source should solve the problem... I'll give it a shot.

Also, on Mac OSX, I tried building from source and configure fails with:

configure: creating libtool
configure: error: "libffi has not been ported to i686-apple- darwin8.7.1."
configure: error: /bin/sh './configure' failed for libffi

That is because this is an Intel Mac - the pyobjc folks do have a libffi ported to the intel mac; is there a way to get the build to use that instead of the included one?

Also, I am not familiar with Ubuntu. If they build from source, do you have a log? In this case, also, you may want to check if you have a or file. If they install a binary, chances are that they do not provide the browser in their package.

I assume it is a binary package. If it is not dependent on any of tcl or tk, then again Ubuntu chose not to provide the browser in their package. Otherwise please send the content of these .sh files.
