Thanks for the advice Lee, still no go - will not get past the configure
script - same error. Did some reading on the sgi site - apparently
there are problems with gnu configure scripts... Looks like this is
going to take me some time.

The funny thing is I was able to get the SANE package from loaded, with all the dependencies in check - though
when I run GIMP I get


/usr/people/madpoet/.gimp/plug-ins/xscanimage: GIMP support missing.
wire_read: unexpected EOF (plug-in crashed?)

Gdk-CRITICAL **: file gdkpixmap.c: line 63: assertion `(width != 0) &&
(height != 0)' failed.

Damn I want off my windows box, with Star office running on my sparc,
and hopefully soon scanner support on the SGI, wont need the windows box
for anything but games *grins*

Well I am out for now - going to take a break...
