Grip/curl problems


I am trying to install the latest Grip from source off the website. I am trying to run ./configure, and it checks everything and then tells me this:

checking curl/curl.h usability... yes
checking curl/curl.h presence... yes
checking for curl/curl.h... yes
checking for curl_global_init in -lcurl... no
configure: error: curl libs are missing

I have curl installed, 7.12.0 from slackware-current. I also tried installing it from source and it still tells me that. Why won't it find the libraries?

I'm having the exact same problem on SuSe 9.1

I'm also a linux n00b though, so I have no idea what to do about it

where exactly is curl located on your system (what prefix)?

also notice it is looking for something specific in the library not just that the lib exist (namely the function curl_global_init).

On yours Beck, do you have the curl-devel package installed and what errors exactly does ./configure give you?

The ./configure gives me this:

checking curl/curl.h usability... yes
checking curl/curl.h presence... yes
checking for curl/curl.h... yes
checking for curl_global_init in -lcurl... no
configure: error: curl libs are missing

the exact same as Wynd.

I did install curl-devel, it didn't change anything when installing Grip from source.
I installed Grip from an rpm through YaST and it works fine. I still don't know what the curl problem is and that doesn't really help Wynd.

Thanx for all your help!

it might be just a version mismatch between the one you have installed and the one the configure script is looking for since the script is compiling a small program looking for a particular function.
