got error while compiling...


I have debian woody installed with kernel 2.2.20.
I downloaded everybuddy-0.4.3 and started installing it (it's in source pacage (
Anyway, ./configure went ok but when I executed make I got somewhat following error:
Making all in XX
make[1] Nothing to be done for 'all'
make[1] Leaving directory 'where/I/am/installing/from'
...(a lot of files have same (problem?))
proxy.c:34:gtk/gtk.h: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [proxy.o] Error 1
make[1] Leaving directory 'where/I/am/installing/from'
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

I think I had the similar problem when trying to install an another program. It's something to do with my setup of compiler etc...

Any idea???
Thanks a million

you do not have the gtk-devel package installed.

hi acid_kewpie.

I thought that was the problem and did install it. But still, no change during installation (make). I double checked it even now.

thanks for your reply BTW.

DUDE!! Did you happen to look at the number of posts that acid-kewpie has???

Don't just tell him he's wrong!

You most certainly ARE missing gtk. Now, you may have installed it, and for reasons yet undetermined your system isn't seeing it (haven't run ldconfig); or it may be something else. We won't know until we have further info from you. But, I will guarantee you, with responses like that, NO ONE is going to respond to this thread!!

Yeah run ldconfig, check that gtk installation path is in /etc/ if not add it and re-run ldconfig.
Also delete config.cache in source dir of the program you're compiling.
If thats doesnt work check back here... maybe u need to modify the make file.
