Re: Unable to compile Hello World

Check your pkg-config command, it should be --cflags and --libs with two '-', not just one

(Sorry for the repetition Aitor, I forgot to post to the list)

My name is Aitor and I’m new to this list. I have some experience with C programming, but this is the first time I’m trying to do something more appealing than a simple DOS console, for which I hace decided to use GTK+. I’ll try to be as thorough as possible about my problem:


The question is: whenever I try to compile the first example in the tutorial ( I get the following message:


$ gcc base.c –o base `pkg-config –cflags –libs gtk+-2.0`

c:/mingw/bin/../lib/gcc/mingw32/4.5.0/../../../libmingw32.a(main.o):main.c:(.text+0xd2): referencia a `WinMain 16´ sin definir

Collect2: ld returned 1 exit status


I’m using MinGW with Windows Vista. Both \bin\ folders of the MinGW and GTK are registered in the PATH environment variable. When I execute pkg-config by itself it works properly, listing all the libraries. I’ve made myself sure that I’m using the backquote character, but still doesn’t work.


Any clues, please?
