pkg-config error , no package found...


Hi,

I am trying to install enlightenment windows manager from sources on a fresh arch install. I stuck with an error : package 'eina' not found.

PKG_CONFIG_PATH is set to : /usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
The latter location contains file eina.pc.

Do you know where may lie the problem?

enlightenment 0.18.xxxx is in the "extra" repository - no need to install it from source!

how about /usr/lib64/pkgconfig? I presume we're 64 bit.

We're 32bit. Well, none of you helped me with the direct problem. I've managed to work around this issue by passing `pkg-config --cflags -- libs eina` to gcc flags. Still got stuck on another thing. F** building from sources I've lost 5+ hours for that. Thanks for info about the package!

Building from source requires discipline and great patience. I have spent days at it.

This is obvious, but is there a subsequent command like
Code:
 export PKG_CONFIG_PATH

You're right that's obvious. It was exported
