Description Nicolas Mailhot 2002-11-14 14:37:50 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; fr-FR; rv:1.2b) Gecko/20021114

Description of problem:
XFree86-devel install its pkgconfig files in /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig/, which is
not the default pkgconfig directory.

This confuses the system and hampers for example xft mozilla build, since it
needs xft.pc and does not find it in pkgconfig normal directory.

(and what's the point anyway of /usr/X11R6/lib/pkgconfig, it only contains two
files on my system)

So either pkgconfig should be fixed to also look in this dir or the pc files
should be installed in normal directory

(btw red mouse cursors are very outlandish ; is there a way to select gold ones
instead (or even in the relevant gnome2 dialog) ?)

Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2002-11-15 01:57:45 UTC
The pkgconfig stuff is currently in the location that XFree86 installs
it when building.  This is a known issue, and will be fixed soon.
