Description Richard Budd 2002-05-24 20:51:46 UTC
Tried to emerge gnome 2 per the instructions that Spider gave on mailing lists,
etc. Got all the way to /control-center- and got the following::
checking for IMLIB - version >= 1.8.2... yes
checking for gnome-vfs library >= 0.9... ./configure: gnome-vfs-config: command
not found
./configure: gnome-vfs-config: command not found
configure: error: Did not find gnome-vfs installed

!!! ERROR: The ebuild did not complete successfully.
!!! Function src_compile, Line 17, Exitcode 1
!!! (no error message)
!!! emerge aborting on  /usr/portage/gnome-base/control-center

I have kernel  linux 2.4.19-gentoo-r5
Compiler       2.95.3 20010315 (releasecontrol-center- .
 Any more info needed just let me know.
Comment 1 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-24 21:32:31 UTC
okay, did you forget to unmask control-center perhaps?

I'd guess that's whats happening here really, since "gnome-vfs-config" is part
of the check for gnome-vfs >= 0.9 , and all gnome2 packages use "pkg-config" to
get version information.

Went back and checked for a un#ed control-center. Yep, my bad. Thanks for the
quick help.
