Installing Simdock in F9

Okay, so I'm trying to install Simdock manually in F9/Gnome and it's looking for two dependencies in the wrong place/by the wrong name. It says I'm missing gconf-2.0 and libwnck-1.0, but I've already checked via yumex and they're both installed, but the packages have been renamed Gconf2 and libwnck (no numerical suffix). How can I make the 'configure' file look in the right place? here's the output when I run ./configure:

# ./configure

checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for gawk... gawk

	gconf-2.0 >= 2.18.0,
	libwnck-1.0 >= 2.18.0
) were not met:

No package 'gconf-2.0' found
No package 'libwnck-1.0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables DEPS_CFLAGS
and DEPS_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

You are likely missing development files, packaged separately. By convention they end in -devel, so install GConf2-devel for example.

There is a Development Tools package group for some basic compilation tools.

Also look into learning rpm packaging, as you can build your own packages.

Re: Installing Simdock in F9

Here's the list of required packages:


If you have problems building it, install the src rpm and check out the patches and spec file. Even if you're building a newer version of an app, it can be helpful to see any workarounds used to build the old one.
