    Problem with installation glib -1.2.10 on Fedora - Gnome - 64bit

    Hey guys !

    I 'm trying to install glib 1.2.10 on my fedora, 64bit.

    When I hit configure, I get the following response :

    loading cache ./config.cache
    checking for a BSD compatible install... (cached) /usr/bin/install -c
    checking whether build environment is sane... yes
    checking whether make sets ${MAKE}... (cached) yes
    checking for working aclocal... found
    checking for working autoconf... found
    checking for working automake... found
    checking for working autoheader... found
    checking for working makeinfo... found

    checking build system type... Invalid configuration `x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu': machine `x86_64-unknown' not recognized

    checking if the linker (/usr/bin/ld) is GNU ld... (cached) yes
    checking for BSD-compatible nm... (cached) /usr/bin/nm -B

    loading cache ./config.cache within ltconfig
    ltconfig: you must specify a host type if you use `--no-verify'
    Try `ltconfig --help' for more information.
    configure: error: libtool configure failed

    It's required for installing an old engineering software.

    any ideas on how to solve it, would be greatly appreciated.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    What version of fedora, and which kernel are you running? This may be a case where you need to manually edit the config files so it recognizes your system/kernel. I've had to do that before to get some source packages to configure and build.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
