Hi, okay than the configure file is the one I have been looking at, I am not sure where to look inside of this file to find the error. I have installed it. and I thought I followed all of the directions but I guess I must have missed something somewhere. Could you tell me where in the configure file I might find where the error was generated so I can post it here? thanks
