gnome-print-0.37: must create /opt/gnome/lib/ to get it to recognize libxml

Reported by: lucius1@… Owned by: blfs-book@…
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: ~CVS
Severity: normal Keywords:


The gnome-print-0.37 installation step "./configure --prefix=/opt/gnome --with-zlib=/usr" fails (claims that you must have libxml-1.8.8 or later installed, even though libxml-1.8.17 is already installed) unless you manually create the file /opt/gnome/lib/ to tell gnome-config about libxml-1.8.17:

# Sample /opt/gnome/lib/ cat > /opt/gnome/lib/ << EOF XML_LIBDIR="-L/usr/lib" XML_LIBS="-lxml" XML_INCLUDEDIR="-I/usr/include" MODULE_VERSION=xml-1.8.17 EOF

The above is valid for gnome components installed with prefix=/opt/gnome, with libxml-1.8.17 and various other gnome components (including gdk-pixbuf) installed as specified in the Beyond Linux From Scratch online book version 1.0 (except did not disable gtk-doc for gdk-pixbuf). Also, the installation instructions for gnome-print need a note that this package requires gdk-pixbuf.

However, the sample xmlConfig.h that I gave previously has an error. Here is a corrected one (at least works for installing gnome-print-0.37 -- gnome-print functionality testing will have to await abiword-1.0.6 installation and testing):

# Sample /opt/gnome/lib/ cat > /opt/gnome/lib/ << EOF XML_LIBDIR="-L/usr/lib" XML_LIBS="-lxml" XML_INCLUDEDIR="-I/usr/include/gnome-xml" MODULE_VERSION=xml-1.8.17 EOF

Built abiword-1.0.6 and briefly tested it -- seems to work (apart from the obvious bugs that abiword-1.0.6 has in importing Microsoft Word documents).
