[Dxspider-support] ubuntu 7.4 feasty fawn

You'll need to install the 'c' compiler to build the client program 
(sudo apt-get install build-essential), but it sounds as though you 
haven't quite gotten to that point yet. 

Have you installed the perl stuff mentioned in the installation manual, 
and made the necessary changes to the configuration files?

Another thing that comes to mind is to check where you're directories 
are... they should be at ./spider/*... if they're at 
./home/username/spider/*, you'll get all sorts of errors unless you make 
some changes to the code... I found it quicker and easier to simply move 
everything to ./ as root and then change the permissions.

I have two nodes running, one is telnet-only and runs under Xubuntu 7.04 
(Ubuntu with XFCE rather than Gnome), the other has packet and telnet 
and runs under Debian Etch.  I'd be happy to send you copies of any of 
my config files, if that would be of help to you.
