Thread: Compileing IceCat

  1. #1

    Default Compileing IceCat

    Okay, so I downloaded the IceCat tarball and extracted it.
    Then i type ./configure and I receive the error message:

    checking for dbus-glib-1 >= 0.60... Package dbus-glib-1 was not found in the pkg-config search path. Perhaps you should add the directory containing `dbus-glib-1.pc' to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable No package 'dbus-glib-1' found
    configure: error: Library requirements (dbus-glib-1 >= 0.60) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

    It seems that automake cannot find the dbus-glib lilbrary, but it seems that I have this isntalled as dbus-1-glib, (smart packman and zypper say that package is installed) so, is there a way that I can get automake to use this package, If not where should I look for this library, I have already tried downloading the dbus sourcecode and installing it but it doesn't seem to include dbus-glib.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance, John

    Hi
    When compiling and you see a requirement for package x, they
    generally mean the corresponding development package,
    for example: dbus-1-glib-devel

    thanks, great advice for 2 libraries I used the "-devel" version and for cairo suse only has 1.4, so i installed that from source, I compiled everything and now it works perfectly.

    Thanks!

    I messed up somehow I can't figure out what it is though I probably shouldn't have recompiled dbus is what it seems like...

    Knetwork Manager crashes and I recieve this:
    System configuration startup check disabled.

    and the XINE daemon will not load. What should I do to fix this?

    What did you recompile dbus for?

    Try to reinstall it via YaST and hope you haven't installed in some other path. Next time when compiling stuff, build an .rpm before installing the compilation instead of commanding 'make install', that way you'll be able to manage the package hand in hand with your package-manager. 'make installed' packages are hard to deinstall and impossible to upgrade.

    Make love, not install.

    Maybe if it is specifically for just the machine you are using try check install
    People who do not break things first will never learn to create anything

    It's 'ckeckinstall', to be precise (I'm german, so forgive me being picky, kay?).

    checkinstall indeed is a quick'n'dirty way to make packages the fast way. Since I usually do not spread compilations, I use it mostly and it works pretty fine.

    I already tried reinstall dbus with yast, it doesn't do anything and I have also used the make uninstall command to remove the compiled version of dbus. I still get the error messages when loading knetwork and I cannot load the XINE engine. Sound doesn't work either. Any Ideas?

    (I recompiled dbus because the app needed a higher version)

    A higher Version of dbus? For a browser? Hm, that I do not quite get...

    Might be offtopic, but just *why* do you want to use IceCat at all? Use Firefox and spare yourself the hassle - I *might* be wrong, but to me it seems your sys is totally messed up. Maybe someone else sees a solution, I surely do not.

    Compiling needs a little knowledge beyond the average - for example the knowledge about what packages one should better do not touch.

    opening knetworkmanager from console I get the error message:
    Connection to D-Bus system message bus failed:
    Failed to connect to socket /usr/local/var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: no such file or directory.

    It seems I need to reinstall dbus or change some configuration files. Does anyone know what I should do about this dbus error?
