tar.gz question <---NOOOOOB QUESTION


Hi all...
ok, i was trying to install guiftp so i ran the "tar -xvzf guiftp-etc-etc.tar.gz" that i downloaded to the "/root" directory. then i cd into the new directory and ran the "./configure" and now it tells me i dont have the GLIB...so i go and download it, to the /root directory. i extract it the same way i did the guiftp and then cd into the directory and run the ./config and it tells me i'm missing some other file...

now, my question is... do i have to run the tar.gz from a specific directory? i was thinking maybe that's why it doesn't find the files it needs...

thanks in advance

Welcome to LQ.org, jairo

Post the trailing 10 lines of the output by directing it to a file.

./configure > configureout.txt

It's probably because either you don't have the libraries in your path, GLIB_CONFIG variable is set wrong or the LD_LIBRARY_PATH is pointing somewhere funny.

thanks for the welcome and the help =)

here are the last 10 lines of the output:

checking for gmsgfmt... no
checking for xgettext... :
checking for catalogs to be installed... fr
checking for sed... /bin/sed
checking for glib-config... no
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.

Depending on your distro, you'll need to install gnome development libraries.

Have a look over here.

We all have to wait for some apps to update the Gnome version they're coding against. In the mean time, there might be pre-compiled binaries available for your distro. What is your distro - it's not in your sig.?
