Problems during install

Post by Guest »

Hello everyone,

I can't install XnView on Slackware 10 with Kernel 2.6.7, as soon as I start the install script, I'll get this error:

Code: Select all

  OS  : Linux, version 2.6.7
./install: line 26: syntax error near unexpected token `('
./install: line 26: `   uid=*(root)*)'
what does this mean, how can I install XnView?

many thanks in advance.
