Re: SCREEM html editor on FC2 / libgtkhtml libpango issues



A couple of things to note here, depending on how your system is
installed:

If you have compiled some libraries from source and installed them in
the standard configure locations (/usr/local), then you will need to
modify your PKG_CONFIG_PATH variable.

Red Hat puts everything in /usr, and the default pkg-config directory is
in /usr/share/pkgconfig.

Installing from source will normally create a /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig
directory.

Before running configure, do the following from a bash shell:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/share/pkgconfig

./configure should then find all of the appropriately configured
libraries.

The other thing that Red Hat does is separate a development package from
a running package.  In particular the include files are going to be
missing.

You'll need to use yum / apt-get / rpm to install the development
packages (normally <pkg-name>-devel) in order to actually build the
software.

That said, the official libcroco packages are too old (0.4.0 as opposed
to the required >= 0.5.0).  Attempting to remove the current version of
libcroco and libcroco-devel creates a raft of dependency issues.

I suppose one could do a ./configure --prefix=/usr for the latest
version of libcroco (0.5.1) and install on top of the current version.

Another way to approach this would be to build both a libcroco and
libcroco-devel rpm with the 0.5.1 source code.

Before modifying libcroco and libcroco-devel, you should check to see
what changed between 0.4.0 and 0.5.1 so that you don't break other
packages.

This is not the clearest of paths . . . sorry I wasn't more helpful.

/mde/
just my two cents . . . .
