List of common errors for the module libgsf.

Error - /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgsf-1

System details: 2006-08-20 09:21 MST - JHBuild, GNOME 2.16 - Ubuntu

Stage: Compile

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lgsf-1
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[2]: *** [gsfmodule.la] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/extra/cvs/gnome2/libgsf/python'
make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/extra/cvs/gnome2/libgsf'
make: *** [all] Error 2


The problem is that the python bindings try to link with the library before it's installed.


Drop to a shell, and perform a make install in the gsf subdirectory. The linking in the python subdirectory should then complete successfully.
