another release , another hair-pulling session [Feb. 19th, 2004|07:07 pm]
Trying to compile 4.3.1 on SuSE 8.2:

libtool: link: cannot find the library `/opt/gnome/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.la'
make[2]: *** [logjam] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/logjam-4.3.1/src'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/src/logjam-4.3.1'
make: *** [all] Error 2
dustpuppy:/usr/local/src/logjam-4.3.1 #

said file is in /usr/lib--why doesn't autoconf find it there? I thought that was the point of using autoconf--so you didn't have to chase hither and yon to find all the various library files that are in arbitrary places that vary from one distro to another.

And whatever happened to the Linux Filesystem Standard, anyway?

LogJam is certainly not doing that-- it's your system.

I'd guess that your pkg-config install is messed up. grep around /usr/lib/pkgconfig for mention of that weird /opt/gnome path.

SUSE 8.2? the GTK that logjam needs is in /opt/gnome2/lib/ Or should be. From config.log:

It was created by logjam configure 4.3.1, which was
generated by GNU Autoconf 2.57.  Invocation command line was

  $ ./configure --with-gtkspell=/opt/gnome2/lib --with-gtkhtml=/opt/gnome2/lib

uname -s = Linux

Also make sure the requisite -devel packages are installed. (Followup-to Evan so he gets this too.)

Depends. There is an update on ftp.gwdg.de (advanced SuSErs know that place, I think :) for those that want to upgrade their GNOME 2.2 to GNOME 2.4. The new GNOME is installed into /opt/gnome/.

Dunno about the Linux Filesystem Standard, but I suppose it might be good to bugreport it to SuSE. I solved my problem compiling and described how I did it here.
