Hello there,

Im trying to install on ubuntu 11.10 and its failing because i have gdl3 and its expecting gdl1. How best should i resolve this?

Here is the result of ./waf configure

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gdl-1.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gdl-1.0' found

Many thanks

Hi ,
an dirty very derti way to compile is to instal libgdl1 and libgdl3 from older ubuntu versions manually.
(e.g. Download form : http://pkgs.org/ubuntu-11.04/ubuntu-universe-i386/libgdl-1-dev_2.30.1-1_i386.deb/download/)
Activate valac-12 and valac-12-dev; deinstall libgdl-3-dev.

then ./waf config .....
The compilation works well,

BUT : at the moment one error :
valide: error while loading shared libraries: libvalide-0.0.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Well .... im working on this but
the dependencis should be fixed for Ubuntu LTS ....
