Description Mark Gooch 2003-02-08 10:31:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3; Linux)Description of problem:Fresh installation of RH8.0 - 'out of the box'When a new (mdi) project is created in KDevelop, compilation fails because the makefile can't be created because KDevelop can't find mcopidl and artsc-config.KDevelop asks if aRts has been installed properly.The problem is either:- KDevelop's standard project template requires two system files which were not installed by Anaconda, or- KDevelop's standard project template configuration requires files that I don't need (specific to aRts), and I can't 'turn them off'When files are copied from another RH8.0 installation into /usr/bin, KDevelop works properly.Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):How reproducible:AlwaysSteps to Reproduce:1.Install RH8.0, with KDevelop2.Open KDevelop3.Project -> New -> MDI4.( Ignore documentation indexing bux )5.Work through Wizard & Exit when project has been created6.Build->configure ( leaving options blank, as per default )7.Get error message    Actual Results:  KDevelop reports that a critical file mcopidl is missing, have you installed aRts correctly. When the file is installed in /usr/bin, it gives a similar message regarding artsc-config.Expected Results:  Build->configure should have found all required files in an out-of-the-box configurationAdditional info:Reproducibility - happens every time I tried to create a new project, with my KDevelop installationHaven't tried re-installing the system to see if it would pick up the extra files ( I was able to copy them from another RH8.0 installation on my laptop - then KDevelop works fine. )

you have to install arts/arts-devel if you want to have them.
it's not required and is not installed by default.
