pkg-config

Post by worker201 »

I was trying to build gmencoder today, and it uses a pkg-config search to check for the existence of libgnomeui. For some reason, libgnomeui.pc was not added to the pkg-config directory, or anywhere else, even though it is installed.

I looked at some other .pc files, and it seems likeI should be able to write one on my own. The manpage confirms the layout and syntax of these files. But before attempting that, I wanted to know if there was any way to have libgnomeui automatically added to the pkg-config directory by the system. Is there?

I'm building an FC3 RPM of this now. Should have it in the repo soon. I'm not sure why you are having the problem. I downloaded v0.1.0 and slightly modified the spec file included in it and it compiled/built with no errors.

See here:

Or if you have my repo:

# apt-get update; apt-get install gmencoder

As a favor to the community, could you make a sticky in the Fedora forum with your repo information? It took me awhile to track down the correct address for the FC3 repo.

Gmencoder works great, thanks for the binary.

Yeah I reorged the repo a little and used to have everything in the RPMS directory which has the repo info:
