Re: Could not find glib.h


Hi Andreas,

It was my program, it has been compiled for weeks without any issues
until I added an #include <glib.h>, despite the glib-2.0 was defined
in the recipe, the do_compile() stopped at following errors, I can see
glib-2.0 was built in build and image directory, I can see glib.h was
in build and image directory, is it a basic principle if a package
library was defined in DEPENDS, the bitback should automatically find
the header files and library links? Why it still complained no such

DEPENDS += "glib-2.0"
RDEPENDS += "glib-2.0"

do_compile() {
oe_runmake -e

fatal error: glib.h: No such file or directory #include <glib.h>

compilation terminated.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

- jupiter

Thanks Richard, where to run pkg-config? If I run pkg-config in the
host, it pointed to host Ubuntu package which is different to the
cross compiler.

You probably need to use pkg-config to find out which CFLAGS to use for
Maybe I missed something but there is not much information about what
you are trying to build. Starts with build system: autotools / cmake /
meson / qmake / waf?

Is there a place to look into the recipe? That might make support easier.
