34 libraries useful for providing data structure handling for C, portability
35 wrappers and interfaces for such runtime functionality as an

128 <para>If desired, apply the optional patch. In many cases, applications that
129 use this library, either directly or indirectly via other libraries such
130 as <xref linkend="gtk3"/>, output numerous warnings when run from the
131 command line. This patch enables the use of an environment variable,
132 GLIB_LOG_LEVEL, that supresses unwanted messages. The value of the
133 variable is a digit that corresponds to:</para>

143 <para>For instance GLIB_LOG_LEVEL=4 will skip output of Warning and
144 Notice messages (and Info/Debug messages if they are turned on).
145 If GLIB_LOG_LEVEL is not defined, normal message output will not
146 be affected.</para>

153 If upgrading from a previous version of GLib that was built using
154 autotools, and the <application>libtool</application> archives (.la
155 files) were installed, you will need to adjust all installed libtool
156 archives,
157 <filename>/usr/lib/libg{io,lib,module,object,thread}-2.0.la</filename>,
158 to replace references to the libtool archives for this package with the
159 appropriate linker library flag (-l),
160 <command>-lg{io,lib,module,object,thread}</command>. 600+ files must be
161 modified on a complete gnome desktop.

221 To test the results, after having installed the package, issue:

223 One test, gdatetime, is known to fail on sysvinit systems.
224 <!-- Needs /etc/localtime to be a symbolic link. In addition
225 the link must be to some place like /usr/share/zoneinfo/...

227 This can be overcome if the line below in glib/tests/gdatetime.c
228 is removed or commented out.
