Description sombriks@gmail.com 2010-12-19 11:40:39 UTC
basically i have glib and gio, but i got the following error:

pk-client-helper.c: In function 'pk_client_helper_start':
pk-client-helper.c:491: warning: implicit declaration of function 'g_unix_socket_address_new_with_type'
make[4]: Saindo do diretório `/home/sombriks/workspace-helios-cpp/PackageKit-0.6.11/lib/packagekit-glib2'
pk-client-helper.c:491: error: 'G_UNIX_SOCKET_ADDRESS_PATH' undeclared (first use in this function)
pk-client-helper.c:491: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
pk-client-helper.c:491: error: for each function it appears in.)

on slackware it fails to find the headers, but i have them there:

so, any help to make packagekit find those headers are welcome.

Comment 2 sombriks@gmail.com 2011-01-10 16:48:18 UTC
Hello and thanks for the answer, that helped a lot.

now i'm using eclipse (which helped to point the lack of  GObject Introspection package) with linux tools.

the compilation then started to run pretty well but i got a polkit problem now...

on slackware, i have that polkit version:


and have some other packages aswell:


the compilation process quits with error and give me these messages:

/home/sombriks/workspace-helios-cpp/PackageKit-0.6.11/src/pk-transaction.c:5811: undefined reference to `polkit_authority_get_sync'

/home/sombriks/workspace-helios-cpp/PackageKit-0.6.11/src/pk-engine.c:1493: undefined reference to `polkit_authority_get_sync'

the things were going pretty well, any help will be very welcome.

Hi there, this is an old bug report and I presume you found the fix since then... if not, the mailing list would be a better candidate for your question.
