View Full Version : [ubuntu] Upograde Tracker

April 3rd, 2011, 04:03 PM
Hello all,

I am a big fan of the tracker software. However, the latest version installed on my computer is 0.6.95. I went on the website (http://projects.gnome.org/tracker/) and the latest stable version appears to be 0.10.6

I downloaded the tracker-0.10.6 tar, and ran

/configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var

However, it fails with

configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.26.0) were not met:

Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.26.0' but version of GLib is 2.24.1
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GVDB_CFLAGS
and GVDB_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

I'm guessing I need to upgrade glib to install it? But I have no idea how. Any ideas? I'm running 64 bit ubuntu 10.04 lts
