Description Diego Escalante Urrelo 2008-11-14 01:32:08 UTC
checking for QTCORE... configure: error: Package requirements (QtCore >= 4.4.0) were not met:

No package 'QtCore' found

Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

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

Only --disable-qt lets you continue.
Comment 1 Richard Hughes 2008-11-14 01:38:14 UTC
What do you think the bug is? Does --disable-qt work?
Comment 2 Diego Escalante Urrelo 2008-11-14 01:41:03 UTC
Yes, --disable-qt works. 

Perhaps this is wrong in configure.ac:
AC_ARG_ENABLE(qt, AS_HELP_STRING([--enable-qt],[Build PackageKit-Qt]),

I think that means it defaults to "yes".
Comment 3 Diego Escalante Urrelo 2008-11-14 01:43:26 UTC
Changing configure.ac does the trick.
Comment 4 Richard Hughes 2008-11-14 01:49:46 UTC
Right, but I think the QT library is as important as the Glib one -- I think it's a user/distro choice if the QT library is built or not. Upstream should default to yes IMO.
Comment 5 Diego Escalante Urrelo 2008-11-14 01:58:47 UTC
Oh I see, I thought it was the Qt frontend... in that case it makes sense...
Comment 6 Richard Hughes 2008-11-14 02:26:53 UTC
No, just the library.
