Xfce4.4RC1 fails to build missing dbus ?
When trying to compile xfce4.4RC1 it failes to locate a library. I have been unable to locate information on where this libary gets installed or from what package. only thing ive found is something on xfreedesktop about dbus. The libary sems linked to glib but that cant be since i have the lastet version of that installed glib-2.12.0 the install for xfce fails at runing configure for the xfce desktop manager error log says this
checking for dbus-glib-1 >= 0.34.... not found
1. Why is this not listed as a requirement on the xfce web page
2. Why the hell is it being used or at least checked for ( STOP USING OBSCURE LIBRARIES )
3. The dbus i could find fails to build on a system with glib12 lots of errors about bad code.
4. Why did xfce4.3 build just fine ?????
NOTE: Nothing more then anything annoys me more then a programmer that would use a library that no ones herd of to solve a problem in the code that could have been solved another way without its use. Stop being lazy and include the lib in your code if you know that its only present 2 palces on the entire web or would require a compleate recompile of X windows or something this is annoying and really just makes people not use your program.
