Mandrake Limited Edition 2005 (i.e. 10.2) [Jun. 3rd, 2005|10:57 am]


Hi, I've run into a problem compiling Logjam on my ML 10.2 system. I didn't have any problems compiling it on my old 10.0 install, but for some reason I can't get beyond this point now:

checking for gtk+-2.0 glib-2.0 gobject-2.0 libxml-2.0... Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (gtk+-2.0 glib-2.0 gobject-2.0 libxml-2.0) not met; consideradjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix sopkg-config can find them.

Has anyone had any luck getting it to compile with this version? I've checked and it looks like all the libraries are installed, the configure script just can't seem to find them and I'm stumped as to how to make it work.

Do you have the gtk dev packages installed?

Hmmmm... that seems to be the problem. I had searched for any uninstalled dev packages and found none, but it looks like 10.2 doesn't actually include that package anywhere. I just checked on the CDs and in the directories where it copied all the rpms to and there is no dev package to be found for gtk.

Any suggestions on what I might do (other than switch distros ;)?

I don't know much about these RPM-based systems, but hopefully someone else will see your post and be able to help you. Sorry!

add a 'main' source to rpmdrake (use easyurpmi to find a mirror :)) and the -devel packages should show up and you'll be able to download them.

it's weird that they're not on the cds, although i haven't really dealt with mandrake cds since 9.2, been upgrading via the net since then.

Ah, thanks! I had never tried upgrading that way, but it actually helped me solve most of the problems I was having with this install (logjam wasn't the only program not compiling).

I don't know what they were thinking by not including the dev packages but it looks like they just wanted to fit the entire public install on 3 CDs (compared to FC4-T3 which fits on 4 plus 1 rescue CD).

Anyways, that did the trick, thanks again, I really appreciate it.
