First of all: Hello to everyone (I’m new on the board)!
I’m trying to install fvwm-2.5.12.
runs nicely, giving me the following output:
With Asian bi-direct. text support? no: No fribidi-config found in PATH
With Gettext Native Lang support? yes (libc)
With GTK+ required for FvwmGtk? yes
With GDK image support in FvwmGtk? no: Failed on gdk-imlib, see config.log
With GNOME libs support in FvwmGtk? no: Can’t find working gnome-config
With Iconv support? yes (from C library)
With Mouse strokes (gestures)? no: Can’t find working libstroke
With PNG image support? yes
With ReadLine sup. in FvwmConsole? yes
With RPlay support in FvwmEvent? no: Can’t find working librplay

With Shared memory for XImage? yes
With Session Management support? yes
With Xinerama multi-head support? yes
With Xft anti-alias font support? yes (version 1)
With XPM image support? yes
With Xrender image support? yes
make also seems to be working and terminates without aborting.
As soon as I try to do checkinstall (or make install) I get the
/usr/bin/install -c -m 644 ./fvwm.1 /usr/local/man/man1/fvwm.1
/usr/bin/install: Aufruf von stat für »/usr/local/man/man1/fvwm.1«
nicht möglich: Zu viele Ebenen aus symbolischen Links
make: *** [install-man1] Fehler 1
make: Leaving directory

make: *** [install-recursive] Fehler 1
**** Installation failed. Aborting package creation.
My system-language is set to German, that’s why the messages are
the same. It says something about stat for … not possible because
of too many layers of symbolical links
I tried to install with and without the translucency patch, always
getting the same errors.
Can anyone help?
