Linux Lorma linux 4.0 is the first distribution to be based on Fedora Core, outside of Redhat, that is. It is one of those new breed of single-CD distros that try to include only the best-of-breed applications.

I installed gtkmm recently. I had to sym-link the gtkmm package config file to my package config directory /usr/lib/pkgconfig. I had to set a LD_LIBRARY_PATH so that the gtkmm shared libraries (.so files) could be found, and I also had to set the PK_CONFIG_PATH for /usr/lib/pkgconfig and /usr/local/pkgconfig. It would have been easier if gtkmm came preinstalled or in an .rpm, but if you mess around on Linux as a developer for a year or two, the same library directories -I/usr/include/ or -I/usr/X11R6/include as well as the corresponding /libs/ get used over and over again. It's not as difficult to figure stuff out but the newbie is totally screwed.
