Hello everybody,

balsa-2.5.1 has been released with a next batch of goodies:
- ported to GNetworkMonitor

That port was not quite seamless :(

Short version: if you have glib version 2.32 or better, and configure --with-nm (the default), and do not have the NetworkManager-glib devel package installed, configure will fail.

Workaround: configure --with-nm=no.

Fix: has been pushed to the gtk3 branch.

Long version: glib version 2.32 introduced GNetworkMonitor, which can be used in place of NetworkManager to, well, monitor the network status. Balsa's code has been modified to detect that version of glib at compile time, and use GNetworkMonitor instead of NetworkManager, eliminating the need to link against the additional library. The configure script was similarly modified to detect an adequate version of glib at configure time, and notify the user that NetworkManager, while requested, was not used. But configure then wrongly checks that the -dev package is installed, when of course it should just move on.

With apologies for any inconvenience,

Well, if it is just a configure-time inconvenience, I am not worried. I would be more concerned if balsa compiled successfully without the correct code enabled properly...
