problem with the location of some library files on Slackware 10.2 while compiling atk


Hi everyone,
I experienced a little problem while trying to compile the atk package on slackware 10.2.
the ./configure works fine, when I give the make command everything starts fine but at a certain point I get the following message:
libtool: warning /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.6/../../..//libgobject-2.0.la seems to be moved.
I get this message three times for libgobject-2.0.la libgmodule-2.0.la and libglib-.2.0.la

I have these files in /usr/lib. how can I make make point at them?

Another question: do you know where I can find a good howto or manual about the configuration of fvwm2?

Thanks
Boris

ln -s /usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.la /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.6/../../..//libgobject-2.0.la

Just make sure you specify the exact directory to put the link in /../../..// wont work, it needs to be the location on the system.

the syntax broken down is...

ln [/original/file] [/new/link]
-s just makes an empty file.

That's the hard part! I have no idea what does ../../..// stands for. I've tried include/root/usr/lib but it doesn't work!

Anyway, thank you very much!

../ stands for the parent directory,
// is not correct but it is taken to be /
so :
/usr/lib/gcc-lib/i486-slackware-linux/3.3.6/../../..//libgobject-2.0.la
is the same as
/usr/lib/libgobject-2.0.la

BTW the message is just a warning not an error, you can ignore it, if you want.
