Hi all,

I followed the README and tried to install
ghostview-1.5 on my Red Hat linux Fedora core 1. But
it failed. 

Here are the infomration about the errors:
 [root at cpe-65-189-147-4 ghostview-1.5]# xmkmf
  mv -f Makefile Makefile.bak
  imake -DUseInstalled -I/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/config

[root at cpe-65-189-147-4 ghostview-1.5]# make
gcc -m32 -O2  -pipe -march=i386 -mcpu=i686
-fno-strict-aliasing -pipe      -I/usr/X11R6/include  
 -Dlinux -D__i386__ -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199309L         
      -D_POSIX_SOURCE -D_XOPEN_SOURCE                 
        -D_BSD_SOURCE -D_SVID_SOURCE                  
-DSELFILE    -c -o misc.o misc.c
misc.c:64: error: conflicting types for `sys_errlist'
/usr/include/bits/sys_errlist.h:28: error: previous
declaration of `sys_errlist'make: *** [misc.o] Error 1

How do I fix the problem?

Another question: do I  need a root previlige to
install the software?

Thanks all guys,
