  3. configure fails - what's wrong?


why are there no binary packages?

simply because i don't know how to create them. if somebody could please tell me how to create .rpm and .deb files for KDE applications?

why are there so many windows in fibs mode?

generally, all KDE programs follow the single document interface standard. basically, that means that you do not have one large window that contains lots of small windows.

moreover, the design of bacKgammon has been influenced by the Fidonet message editor FleetStreet. the general idea is that you have small specialized windows. since each window can be disabled and all windows save their state and geometry at program exit, the program is highly customizable - you only see the information you care about.

configure fails - what's wrong?

that's hard to say - but you probably have to provide some options. details on the compilation should be able to help you.
