If you want to hack on the GLib project, you'll need to have the
following packages installed:
- GNU autoconf 2.62
- GNU automake 1.11
- GNU libtool 2.2
- GNU gettext 0.10.40
- pkg-config 0.16
- gtk-doc
- libffi 3.0.0
These should be available by ftp from or any of the
fine GNU mirrors. Beta software can be found at
To compile a GIT version of glib on your system, you will need to take
several steps to setup the tree for compilation. You can do all these
steps at once by running:
checkout/glib# ./
Basically this does the following for you:
checkout/glib# aclocal; automake; autoconf
The above commands create the "configure" script. Now you
can run the configure script in checkout/glib to create all
the Makefiles.
Before running or configure, make sure you have libtool
in your path.
Note that runs configure for you. If you wish to pass
options like --prefix=/usr to configure you can give those options
to and they will be passed on to configure.
For information about submitting patches see the README file.
