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"
^ In case your program links successfully this can go

you could write

do_compile() {
CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} `pkg-config --cflags glib-2.0`"
LDFLAGS="${LDFLAGS} `pkg-config --libs glib-2.0`"
oe_runmake -e

Or similar in your Makefile

And and don't forget

inherit pkgconfig

in your recipe


do_compile() {
oe_runmake -e

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

compilation terminated.

Thank you.

Kind regards,

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
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
