Glade compile error, could not read symbols: File in wrong format
I'm currently trying to compile glade on slackware 64 current, with multilib enabled. When trying to compile, I get:


In file included from /usr/include/python2.6/Python.h:8:0,
                from glade-python.c:27:

The first thing I notice is that its looking in /usr/lib/ instead of /usr/lib64. Up until that point, it seemed to have been using just /usr/lib64, and thus I assume this is the problem. Can't figure out how to fix this, any ideas?

With or without slackbuild, I get the same result.

Have you tried building the slackbuild with LDFLAGS="-L/usr/lib64 -L/lib64"?

As glade is primarily for use in gnome I assume you have gnome installed so why not just use slapt-get ( or gslapt ) to install it?

I have noticed that the odd .pc file or generated configure/makefiles seem to ignore the libdir variable and use /usr/lib ( the usual default ) instead of /usr/lib64, as a quick and dirty workaround you can try

sudo mv /usr/lib /usr/lib.BAK
compile your code and then do

sudo mv /usr/lib.BAK /usr/lib
You shouldn't have to do this very often its just because of some sloppy written makefiles.
This works with the glad3 slackbuild by the way.

I was going to update my SlackBuild to include that line, but SBo is overloaded with submissions at the moment.
