configure error: SWORD library not found
I keep getting an error message when I try to configure Bibletime 1.4.1 on Mandrake 9.2 I installed the latest Sword RPMs (libsword & sword), and the path is /usr/share/sword. When I run ./configure for Bibletime, all goes well until it stops with

checking for Sword library files... configure: error: SWORD library not found. Try to use configure with --with-sword-dir=/your/SWORD/path!

I have used that sword path option, but I still get the same error. What else can I do?

Re: configure error: SWORD library not found
Is the sword-devel RPM installed?

No, the sword-devel rpm is not installed. Should it be? What is installed is libsword3-1.5.7-1mdk9.2.athlon.rpm and sword1.5.7-1mdk9.2.athlon.rpm.

Plese install the libsword3-devel-1.5.7-1mdk9.2.i586.rpm RPM.

I think it should work with this,
