This chapter provides tips for troubleshooting problems with the program.
When compiling from source, autogen.sh complains "libfwbuilder not installed"
As of version 0.9.6 the code has been split into three major parts: API, GUI and policy compilers. You need to download, compile and install API for the rest to compile. The API comes in a separate source archive called libfwbuilder-0.10.0.tar.gz. Compile and install it as usual, using "./autogen.sh; make; make install" procedure.
Trying to install Firewall Builder RPM but I get a bunch of errors "Failed dependencies: ...". What do I need to do ?
You need to install prerequisite libraries. See the list of RPMs in the appendix.
Do not use options "--force" or "--nodeps" when you install fwbuilder RPMs. If rpm complains about unsatisfied dependencies, this means your system is missing some libraries, or the wrong versions are installed. Forcing the package install won't fix that; most likely it will fail in one way or another.
