Gaim 2

Hi,

I am building Gaim 2 for Arch64.... but getting this error

checking for pkg-config... no
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** A new enough version of pkg-config was not found.
*** See http://www.freedesktop.org/software/pkgconfig/
configure: error:
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.
make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found.  Stop.
==> ERROR: Build Failed.  Aborting...

Anyone give me any help ?

Have a feeling I need to rebuild glib ..... but pkgconfig I'm very confused

Re: Gaim 2

The glib2 pkg should be fine. But you can try to recompile it. It guess you need another configure option "--with-libdir" or something like that or a patch is needed.

For now I cannot understand why you try to compile unstable software. I think there is enough space for testing existing packages. A lot of bugs should be found and fixed. That is much more important on the way becoming an official port.

Re: Gaim 2

Err odd, Gaim 2.0 is working fine here. I just built it using aurbuild but I stripped it down a bit, I'll try rebuilding it (stupid aurbuild doesn't keep copies lying around mad) for you and email you a link smile
