adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable


Hello everyone! i ran into a problem while isntalling xine player on fedora 11, i first of all installed its core engine 'xine-lib' successfully with standard prefix! when i run the './configure' for its frontend (xine-ui) it gives this error.


No package 'libxine' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables XINE_CFLAGS
and XINE_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

any help will be appreciated.

Hi,

I guess that when you say standard prefix, you mean that you ran just plain ./configure for xine-libs. If that's the case, you can use:
Code:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
before running ./configure for xine-ui.

Regards

No package 'liblircclient0' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables LIRC_CFLAGS
and LIRC_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

thx for your response!

I guess you miss liblirc.
Why don't you use
Code:
yum install xine-ui
so you don't have to do all this job resolving and installing dependencies
