first, lets start off with a success, i installed gcc! i had to install three packages before gcc would install correctly. (this is a grand success for me!
I'm trying to install a simple program (for livejournal) called drivel, if youre familiar with it, that's a plus
but I dont think it's anything out of the ordinary.
I ran into this error:
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0... Package libgnomeui-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `libgnomeui-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'libgnomeui-2.0' found
configure: error: Library requirements (libgnomeui-2.0 >= 2.0.0) not met; consider adjusting
the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
therefore, I downloaded libgnomeui-2.2.1 and installed it. i ran the ./configure for drivel again and ran into the same error. I did some more reading up on the issue and found out what directories libgnomeui installed itself into (using rpm -ql libgnomeui-2.2.1-3)
(if detail on output of this command is needed, please ask. I think its too long and not completely necessary)
the three directories that looked crucial were noted and i executed these commands
[root@localhost root]# export PKG_CONFIG=/usr/local/bin/pkg-config
[root@localhost root]# export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/libglade/2.0/
[root@localhost root]# export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/
I believe that the command 'export PKG_CONFIG=' directs what directories the program pkgconfig can search for for libraries.
then i ran ./configure again for drivel. and im still getting the same error.
Please advise! much thanks in advance
