I do not know what .la files are, so I do not know what you mean with 'references the above file'.
I wonder why I have 957 .la files on my linux system if I do not need them.

The messages I get are:

I get this with any gnome app that I want to compile so there clearly something broken. But what, I have not yet been able to figure out.
But again garnome seems to link against gnome libraries in /usr/lib

I just meant to say what I changed in Off course I did not change this file during the compilation.

I hope you can give me some extra help.


Physics is a approximate description of a part of the physical phenomena, that are only a small portion of human perceptions.
