opensuse install : gio-sharp missing

Asked by rob on 2010-06-03

Hi,

I followed the installation guide for an Opensuse 11.2 install and had the folllowing message from the autogen script::

checking for GIO_SHARP... configure: error: Package requirements (gio-sharp-2.0) were not met:
No package 'gio-sharp-2.0' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GIO_SHARP_CFLAGS
and GIO_SHARP_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I then installed gio-sharp (version 2.22-6.1 (i586)) from an Opensuse repository. A re-run of the autogen script resulted in the same error.

I would appreciate some help. (easy instructions for someone not familiar with Linux!!)

Regards
Rob

I'm running under fedora.

To solve this, I grabbed the source from the tree, and installed it. It was installed under /usr/local/lib.

Thus, I update the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH with:
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

rerun the autogen script, and everything worked.

@rob: You would also need to install the corresponding devel package, gio-sharp-devel-2.22-6.1
