Sent this message July 4th and understand you were on vacation. Thought I would re-send as the problem still exists and I have not heard back. Thank you.

I have installed X11 and XCode 2.1 for Mac OS 10.4.1, then Fink 0.8.0 and installed Ethereal. No error messages with installs. When I go to run Ethereal from X11 I get this error message and it does not start:

I do not find a Pango install at /sw/etc/. Thank you in advance for your help.
