Hmmm, which omlinux version got installed? I just released a newer
version of omlinux today and probably it is not yet in the mirrors. If
you have omlinux 4.7.1.beta you need to install gtk-canvas-devel and

The new package (4.7.2.beta-1) has this dependency error fixed. 

Caveats: make sure you have /dev/MidiShare, and that it is rw for the
user, "mknod /dev/MidiShare c 151 0" otherwise (this is fixed in the
latest midishare packages, still in the Planet Edge repository). Plus
the midishare kernel module has to be loaded
("/etc/rc.d/init.d/MidiShare start").
