noob alert

how do I get past this !! I have already have Diamondback and now I am trying to install fuerte ( on Fedora 17 ) without removing Diamondback I am installing fuerte because I am confused whether the stacks openni_camera openni_tracker and openni_launch would work alright with Diamondback ... what I understand is the older stack openni_kinect is now divided into 2 - openni_camera and openni_tracker .. and their pages show install commands only for fuerte also there is more support for fuerte now i think

I went through the process of installing Fuerte on Fedora 17 yesterday and had to install A LOT of additional libraries. This particular dependency was resolved by installing wxWidgets, wxPython, wxPython-devel, if I remember correctly.

Only wxGTK-devel seems to be sufficient. I just ran into this error and installing this one package solved it.

EDIT: The make command failed requiring wxPython. Heh.
