Thread: OpenSuse Different Library Names

  1. #1

    Default OpenSuse Different Library Names

    Hi all.
    I have downloaded stardict 3.0.4 .tar from code.google.
    when i try to run ./configure it gives me the message that

    "
    configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 glib-2.0 >= 2.8 zlib libxml-2.0 >= 2.5) were not met:
    No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
    No package 'glib-2.0' found
    No package 'zlib' found
    No package 'libxml-2.0' found"

    but I have installed all of them,zlib,libxml2-2 gtk2 and gtk3 and glib,and all the versions are higher than the required.

    what's wrong?
    I have seen later that some names of opensuse libraries are different than other distros, i mean they have some letters of semiword inaddition to the orginal name.
    How to fix that?

    To compile, you need the -devel versions of the mentioned packages to be installed.

    But...... did you check this: http://software.opensuse.org/search?...upported=false

    instead of tripping around the net and picking up apps from who knows
    who (ok, so we know Google, but), why not just use the neat, tidy and
    hopefully CLEAN and easy to install applications in the openSUSE repos??

    stardic is right there in the basic oss repo, so just pop open YaST >
    Software Management, search on 'stardict', mark it for installation and
    then click "Accept".....done, no messing around with downloading,
    compiling (after finding all the pieces, some with different names
    depending on the disto, etc etc etc), installing, figuring out how to
    add it to a menu, etc etc etc..

    OR, just pop open a terminal, become root with "su -", and enter
    Code:
    zypper in stardict
    done! don't even have to open YaST

    OR, go to http://software.opensuse.org, click the tool icon and dial in
    your openSUSE version number, type in stardict and follow your nose..

    but, to your question "what's wrong? . . .all the versions are higher
    than the required."

    well, "higher than" is not always "better than" or "good enough
    for"...that is, if i tell you stardict requires libsomething1.2.3 you
    should not assume it will run with libsomething1.2.4, 1.2.5 or anything
    other than what it *requires* (in this case lib1.2.3! if you don't give
    it 1.2.3 it very often won't run.)

    and, when you say "but I have installed all of them", so how did you
    install them? did you use YaST or zypper so that everything gets to the
    correct place, and all the links are set up as required, or did you just
    .. . . . what? (they must be installed correctly, and *if* you manually
    installed them all to the correct places, did you then run ldconfig to
    get them rescanned by the system??)
