I've read nice things, too, about Arch. However, I'm not about to trash my
main server/workstation to accommodate something that might be nice, but is
If I can get all the dependencies for gnucash to build, then get gnucash
working, that's all I'm looking for.
Right now it's trying to find the libgnomeprintui that will build. The
darned things have one name for the package, but then something else looks
in pkgconfig under a different name. It's really a mess.
