Re: [GnomeMeeting-list] Problems with 'make'ing Ekiga 2.0.2

I seem to have got a lot further, but now the "make" stops with the error: "/usr/lib/ could not read symbols: File in wrong format"

As you can see it is using the 32 bit file, although the 64 bit library is also installed:

# file /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ symbolic link to `'
# file /usr/lib/
/usr/lib/ ELF 32-bit LSB shared object, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), stripped

Any ideas?

All the best

So I reversed the order of the directories in PKG_CONFIG_PATH and managed to get past that problem. It would appear that Mandriva is not as good as he thinks?

It still has not completed the make, but I will have to try again in a few days.

Thanks for all the help

All the best

I wonder if Ekiga has been compiled on 64 bits before?


Yes, we even have 64 bits packs on the website.

The problem appears to be that on 32-bit machines the library used
is /usr/lib/glib-2.0/include/glibconfig.h which contains the macro
     #define GPOINTER_TO_INT(p) ((gint) (p))
64-bit machines use glibconfig.h
from /usr/lib64/glib-2.0/include/glibconfig.h which sets
     #define GPOINTER_TO_INT(p) ((gint) (glong) (p))
I used:
# PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig:/usr/lib64/pkgconfig:
# ./configure

to configure Ekiga, since I have both the 32bit and the 64bit
libraries installed, does that mean, do you think, that I am using the
wrong library?

It could be possible.

If I change the order of the PKG_CONFIG_PATH directories, would that
help, do you think?


Just try :-)

I just have the Mandriva packager next to me (@ GUADEC), and he tells
that a good distribution like Mandriva manages this transparently :)

Thanks for the help and explanations

All the best
