No, not install from source. As I said, I tried to install


...which is the binary download from Squeak.org. And I¹m using 32-bit Linux

The Synaptic package is out of date--the latest version it has is 3.8. I
need 3.9 (because I have development images of Seaside based on 3.9).

This is really goofy. What can possibly be wrong with my fresh Feisty Fawn

Squeak runs on Ubuntu 7.04 without problems here.
You download a tar.gz, so you want to install from source?
Try a pre-compiled Synaptic package instead. (Could be difficult on a
64bit Linux)

If you want to build from source, dont forget to install all the
development tools before.
Go to synaptic and install the "build-essential" package.

Hope that helps
