[fpc-pascal]Linux - Graph unit?

Thank you guys!  You're very helpful!

I downloaded the rpm and typed:

#rpm -i svgalib-1.4.1-2.src.rpm

I don't think this is how this type of RPM gets installed.... it's a 
"source" RPM I take it?

It didn't give any errors but didn't fix my compile problem, either.

Sorry for asking a Linux question.... but is there a right way to get 
the graphics library installed?

Thanks, again.


ps.  BTW, we're eventually converting a DOS-based Turbo Pascal program. 
  This program is used by scientists all over the world.  They will LOVE 
to upgrade to Linux!
