Description Paul F. Johnson 2006-11-02 17:12:55 EST
Description of problem:
When I try to pull in pygtk2 for gDeskCal on the buildsys, I find I get the
following error which doesn't occur on FC-6 or rawhide. Is this a buildsys
problem or pygtk2?

checking for pkg-config... no
checking for PYGTK... configure: error: The pkg-config script could not be found
or is too old.  Make sure it
is in your PATH or set the PKG_CONFIG environment variable to the full
path to pkg-config.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables PYGTK_CFLAGS
and PYGTK_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Could you please attach your config.log ?  That might give some useful clues.
Comment 2 Paul F. Johnson 2006-11-04 17:51:13 EST
Does it matter that my config log is for rawhide?
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-04 18:24:01 EST
Should be alright, as long as it shows the error you're seeing.
Comment 4 Paul F. Johnson 2006-11-04 18:38:32 EST
The error I'm seeing is coming from the Fedora buildsys. It's building fine on
my system here. 


contains the buildlog
Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2006-11-04 18:54:39 EST
Okay, but I'd like to see the config.log file that the configure script is
generating.  It contains more information about how the configure script is
testing for things and (hopefully) why the pkg-config tests are failing.

Sure - I'll rebuild it and post the results in the morning.

I think this might be a symptom of the problem reported in bug #220692.

Paul, do you concur?
Comment 9 Paul F. Johnson 2006-12-30 16:57:51 EST
Yes. I'll mark this bug as such and close it.
