Building GLIB 2.12
Hi,
I would like to use Firefox 3 on RHEL 4.5. As it requires glib 2.1
et. al, I thought I'd have a crack at building the correct version of
GLIB for it to use. However, I seem to have hit a stupid problem.....
Can someone tell me why when I build GLIB 2.12, it creates libraries
of version 2.0?!?
When building using ./configure prefix=/opt/gtk2
GLIB builds fine, but then checking the lib directory inside the
prefix reveals the following files have been created:
gio libglib2.0.la libgmodule2.0.so.
0 libgthread2.0.la
glib2.0 libglib2.0.so libgmodule2.0.so.
0.1600.0 libgthread2.0.so
libgio2.0.la libglib2.0.so.0
libgobject2.0.la libgthread2.0.so.0
libgio2.0.so libglib2.0.so.0.1600.0
libgobject2.0.so libgthread2.0.so.0.1600.0
libgio2.0.so.0 libgmodule2.0.la libgobject2.0.so.
0 pkgconfig
libgio2.0.so.0.0.0 libgmodule2.0.so libgobject2.0.so.
0.1600.0
Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldnt the version numbers be
2.1.2, not 2.0?
Or am I missing something obvious?
