where is libffi.so.6?
I'm trying to satisfy dependancies for gimp 2.8
I've been trying to install glib 2.32.1 but I'm getting errors loading libffi.so.6.
It doesn't appear to be installed on my system. I have installed libffi 3.0.11 and it appears to correctly install but still not libffi.so.6
Aren't you able to find the package in /usr/lib?
If it is a rpm based installation, please use the following command,
Still the Debian Sid based Crunchbang ?
Today's Debian Sid has libglib2.0-0 version 2.32.2,
and it uses libffi5 : libffi.so.5
If you have the libffi.so.6 from libffi 3.0.11 in a hideaway location,
glib 2.32.1 may not be able to find it.
Anyway, gimp-2.8.0 will do fine with glib-2.30.2, which is often
compiled to use libffi.so.4 or libffi.so.5
here is what I had in my /usr/lib
2.30.2 seems to have installed ok. I guess I'll give that a try
Gimp 2.8 also requires Pango >= 1.29.4 which requires libffi.so.6 arggggg!
Where do you get those strange packages that require libffi.so.6 ? ?
The current Debian Sid : libpango ver. 1.30.0 :
Depends on a glib2, built with libffi.so -> libffi.so.5
Which OS are you using ? Version ?
I was trying to compile from source
I did a gimp-2.8.0 build on Suse 12.1 yesterday.
That's the one with the "old" libffi-4.6.2 : libffi.so -> libffi.so.4 !
And pango-1.29.4 is the default installed system version.
No issues at all.
