Hi there,


I'm trying to get PDFTK to compile on a centos 3.9 box.  here's a quick rundown of what happens:

[root@ pdftk-1.41]# cat /etc/redhat-release
CentOS release 3.9 (Final)
[root@ pdftk-1.41]# rpm -qa|grep gcj

I'm uncertain of what additional information you might need to help diagnose/resolve.

I've tried building it from the DAG src rpm found here:
http://dag.wieers.com/rpm/packages/pdftk/

with similar issues.

Hi,

To compile a Java program you'll need java-devel libraries also. But you're missing them.

BTW I am not aware if 3.9 repositories still up somewhere. It s ancient. I'll suggest you to upgrade to the latest version of CentOS first.

If you can't find java devel try to install manually from Sun site. You'll need an SE package.JRE package wont do it.

Install it under /usr/java/jdk<version>
link the directory under /usr/lib/java
then export JAVA_HOME variable to point  /usr/lib/java
Make it permanenet adding it under /etc/profile
