gimp-print won't configure

gimp-print won't configure

Post by John Thompso » Sun, 31 Dec 1899 09:00:00



I just downloaded the gimp-print-4.0.2 and have been trying to
configure it to compile on my machine PII/350, RH v6.1 kernel
2.2.16 128MB RAM).  When I run ./configure it dies with the
following less-than-helpful message:

        [clip...]

checking for yacc... /usr/bin/yacc
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of
Makefiles... no
checking for gimptool... /usr/bin/gimptool
checking for GIMP - version >= 1.0.0... no
*** Could not run GIMP test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file

*** or that you have moved GIMP since it was installed. In the
latter case, you
*** may want to edit the gimptool script: /usr/bin/gimptool
configure: error: Cannot find GIMP libs: Please run ldconfig as
root

For some reason, the script thinks I have a version of gimp older
than v1.00, but I don't:


1.0.4

gimp-libgimp-1.0.4-5
gimp-devel-1.0.4-5
gimp-1.0.4-5
gimp-manual-1.0.0-6
gimp-data-extras-1.0.0-4

As far as I can tell, I have the required packages installed,
gimp is at v1.04 (newer than 1.0.0 I think...) yet the configure
script doesn't recognize this.

The config.log file shows this:

        [clip...]

directory

        [clip...]

Which made me go check to see if limits.h was missing, yet it
appears to exist in abundance:

/usr/include/limits.h
/usr/include/kpathsea/c-limits.h

/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/include/limits.h
/usr/i386-glibc20-linux/include/linux/limits.h

Gimp runs fine; I doubt it is incorrectly installed.  I haven't
moved gimp since installing it.  I've run ldconfig as root with
no joy.

What am I missing here?

gimp-print won't configure

Hey:

I've just come here with the exact same problem. I'm using RH6.2 and the
2.2.16 kernel - and I think I've discovered what the problem is, but not
how to solve it.

It's to do with this:

Quote:> /usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:27: linux/limits.h: No such file or
> directory

Here's line 27 of /usr/include/bits/local_lim.h:

#include <linux/limits.h>

If it's replaced by this

#include "/usr/src/linux-2.2.16/include/linux/limits.h"

the ./configure script runs fine, but then make fails complaining about
a similar "#include <linux/something.h>" line.

So it would seem the compiler's looking in the wrong place for
<linux/something.h> files, yeah? Thing is, I don't know where that's
defined - anyone like to help out?

1. can't compile gimp-print.-4.0.2

I've been trying to compile gimp-print for my system (RH v6.1,
kernel 2.2.16) without success.  Running the configure script
produces the following:

checking for yacc... /usr/bin/yacc
checking whether to enable maintainer-specific portions of
Makefiles... no
checking for gimptool... /usr/bin/gimptool
checking for GIMP - version >= 1.0.0... no
*** Could not run GIMP test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file
config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GIMP was
incorrectly installed
*** or that you have moved GIMP since it was installed. In the
latter case, you
*** may want to edit the gimptool script: /usr/bin/gimptool
configure: error: Cannot find GIMP libs: Please run ldconfig as
root

This seems to suggest that my gimp version is below 1.0.0, but
this is not the case:

gimp-libgimp-1.0.4-5
gimp-devel-1.0.4-5
gimp-1.0.4-5
gimp-manual-1.0.0-6
gimp-data-extras-1.0.0-4

All these packages are above v1.0 as far as I can tell.  Gimptool
gives similar results:


1.0.4

ldconfig shows that the gimp libraries should be available:


        [clip...]

        libgimpui.so.1 => libgimpui.so.1.0.4
        libgimp.so.1 => libgimp.so.1.0.4
        libgimpui.so.1 => libgimpui.so.1.0.4
        libgimp.so.1 => libgimp.so.1.0.4
        libgtkxmhtml.so.1 => libgtkxmhtml.so.1.0.1
        libgnorbagtk.so.0 => libgnorbagtk.so.0.0.0
        libgtk.so.1 => libgtk.so.1.0.6
        libgtk-1.2.so.0 => libgtk-1.2.so.0.5.0
        libgtkxmhtml.so.1 => libgtkxmhtml.so.1.0.1
        libgnorbagtk.so.0 => libgnorbagtk.so.0.0.0
        libgtk.so.1 => libgtk.so.1.0.6
        libgtk-1.2.so.0 => libgtk-1.2.so.0.5.0

        [clip...]

Nor has gimp been moved or tampered with since installation.

So what gives?  Why can't I compile this thing?
