The same happened to me. I also knew about the 3.0 rpm but I needed
3.2gamma to keep group convention.
So, I decided to give it another try, I downloaded the .orig.tar.gz from
the debian's ftp... and tried the configure, etc. ritual again, and this
time it worked! Live and learn. :)
The only thing I did different was to have a "build" directory and typed
the commands from there. That way I didn't get any errors - when I
cd(ed) all the way up to /misc and then ./configure I got one error
sqXWindow-something (more or less). So as it happens most of the times
in this cases, (to me anyhow), it was a really stupid really small
detail. Sorry about that.
Now I have Squeak3.2gamma up and running in Linux Mandrake 8.2. It looks
a bit different and I have to get used to just one button and no scrool
wheel, but it works! :D
Thank you all for the help.
