gimp-1.3.15 compilation problem

Post by Jürgen Koslowsk » Wed, 18 Jun 2003 21:41:01


Since about gimp-1.3.11 I haven't been able to compile new versions.  
The latest one ends with the following message when linking:

Any ideas?

Just wondering... have you removed the old distributions lately?
Is it possible that the new stuff is polluting the new distro?
Have you done a make uninstall, then checked out a fresh copy to
see what happens?

This error looks weird... but kind of tallies with what I say
below. Kind of looks like some magic number not matching up.

These two are also odd, since bind_textdomain_codeset is defined
in glibc 2.2 - normally you wouldn't be linking against it unless
you had half an old libc and half a new libc lying around... did
you upgrade glibc recently? Could be the source of your problems
if you're compiling against new headers and an old libc library.

That's just about it.

1. GIMP compilation problem - Perl

Hi there. I have following problem while running configure script:

Warning: prerequisite Parse::RecDescent failed to load: Can't locate

5.6.0 /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0/i386-linux
/usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.6.0 /
usr/lib/perl5/site_perl) at (eval 18) line 3.

Error: Unable to locate installed Perl libraries or Perl source code.

It is recommended that you install perl in a standard location before
building extensions. Some precompiled versions of perl do not contain
these header files, so you cannot build extensions. In such a case,
please build and install your perl from a fresh perl distribution. It
usually solves this kind of problem.

(You get this message, because MakeMaker could not find

Indeed, there's no perl.h file in that directory  (there's
I have installed Perl from Mandrake8.0 distribution (by rpm). My Perl seems
to be installed in /usr/lib/perl5/5.6.0 directory.
Anybody knows how to fix it ?
