Re: [Gimp-developer] Problem with GIMP 2.9.x build dependencies

Dear GIMP experts,

I am having troubles to compile the dependencies required to build the
latest GEGL/GIMP versions from GIT.

The problem I am facing is the following:

* on one hand, GEGL requires GLIB > 2.44.0

* on the other hand, PyGTK (needed to have python support in GIMP) wants
pygobject-2.0, whose latest version I could find is 2.28.6
However, this version must be compiled against a gobject-introspection
version prior to this commit:
archives/commits-list/2011-August/msg03069.html <
archives/commits-list/2011-August/msg03069.html> (Deprecate ErrorDomain),
otherwise one gets compilation errors due to undefined enum values. So this
brings me to 1.29.16 as the latest usable gobject-introspection version (at
least according to release dates, see
GNOME/sources/gobject-introspection/1.29/ <
However, gobject-introspection-1.29.16 cannot be compiled against
glib-2.44.0 because of g_module_* functions having been moved into a sport
library, which gobject-introspection-1.29.16 is not linking…

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a recommended set of library versions
for compiling GIMP? Or should I patch object-introspection to add the
missing glib library?

Thanks a lot in advance!

Use pygtk-2.24 and you should be fine.
