in reply to Installing Glib on Debian

As far as I can tell I have all necessary prerequisites installed...

What are they?

gobject-2.0 is one of them, as is glib-2.0, and they appear to be missing

Any advice on how to attack this?

install gobject/glib/pkg-config

Maybe  apt-get install perl-gnome2 , something like that

    install gobject/glib/pkg-config
    I have all of that.

    Note that if I didn't the configuration-step would already fail as MakeMaker checks for that.

    But for whatever reason I only get a warning (something I dit not get on the other machine) and a .so is compiled but that does not seem to work. Unfortunately both perl-version and library-versions are slightly different on my other machine...

        You have what? Where is it?

        I really would like to understand why I get the warning on this machine but not on the other...
