Re: Fail to perform configure on solaris 8

Hello, Pavel!

I am trying to compile mc on my Solaris system. As described in instruction
- I performed :
./configure --prefix=/h/psimonov/FileMgr/mc_bin --without-x --without-gnome
--without-xview --with-glib-prefix=/h/psimonov/FileMgr/glib | & tee

I don't know where you found "--without-xview". It's quite meaningless
since the xview frontend has been removed.

Next time please mention the version of the software for which you report
problems, i.e. version of Midnight Commanger in this case.

But in fact GLIB_CONFIG is set and point to glib-config script:
psimonov xserver-~/FileMgr/mc-4.5.9-51 $GLIB_CONFIG

If it's indeed mc-4.5.9 then it's very old. Try the latest snapshot from

The AM_PATH_GLIB is quite complicated and picky. It may happen that it
behave incorrectly for you, but let's at least try a recent version.

Actually, you shouldn't be using both GLIB_CONFIG and --with-glib-prefix
in the same time. Any of them is supposed to be sufficient. Please report
if it still doesn't work for you.
