Simple install procedure
========================
% gzip -cd glib-1.1.0.tar.gz | tar xvf - # unpack the sources
% cd glib-1.1.0 # change to the toplevel directory
% ./configure # run the `configure' script
% make # build GTK
[ Become root if necessary ]
% make install # install GTK
The Nitty-Gritty
================
The 'configure' script can be given a number of options to enable
and disable various features. For a complete list, type:
./configure --help
A few of the more important ones:
* --prefix=PREFIX install architecture-independent files in PREFIX
[ Defaults to /usr/local ]
* --exec-prefix=EPREFIX install architecture-dependent files in EPREFIX
[ Defaults to the value given to --prefix ]
Options can be given to the compiler and linker by setting
environment variables before running configure. A few of the more
important ones:
CC : The C compiler to use
CPPFLAGS : Flags for the C preprocesser such as -I and -D
CFLAGS : C compiler flags
The most important use of this is to set the
optimization/debugging flags. For instance, to compile with no
debugging information at all, run configure as:
CFLAGS=-O2 ./configure # Bourne compatible shells (sh/bash/zsh)
or,
setenv CFLAGS -O2 ; ./configure # csh and variants
Installation directories
========================
The location of the installed files is determined by the --prefix
and --exec-prefix options given to configure. There are also more
detailed flags to control individual directories. However, the
use of these flags is not tested.
One particular detail to note, is that the architecture-dependent
include file glibconfig.h is installed in:
$exec_pref/lib/glib/include/
if you have a version in $prefix/include, this is out of date
and should be deleted.
A shell script glib-config is created during the configure
process, and installed in the bin/ directory
($exec_prefix/bin). This is used to determine the location of glib
when building applications. If you move glib after installation,
it will be necessary to edit this file.
General Information
===================
This is GLib version 1.1.0. GLib, is a library which includes support
routines for C such as lists, trees, hashes, memory allocation, and
many other things.
Versions of GLib prior to 1.1.0 are distributed with GTK+ versions 1.1.0
and earlier.

Installation
============
See the file 'INSTALL'
How to report bugs
==================
To report a bug, send mail either to gtk-list, as mentioned
above, or to gtk-bugs@gtk.org. If you send mail to gtk-list, you
must be subscribed yourself.
In the mail include:
* The version of GLib
* Information about your system. For instance:
- What operating system and version
- What version of X
- For Linux, what version of the C library
And anything else you think is relevant.
* How to reproduce the bug.
If you can reproduce it with the testglib program that is built
in the glib/ directory, that will be most convenient. Otherwise,
please include a short test program that exhibits the behavior.
As a last resort, you can also provide a pointer to a larger piece
of software that can be downloaded.
* If the bug was a crash, the exact text that was printed out
when the crash occured.
* Further information such as stack traces may be useful, but
is not necessary.
Patches
=======
Patches can be uploaded to the incoming/ directory on
ftp.gtk.org. Please follow the instructions there, and include
your name and email address in the README file.
If the patch fixes a bug, it is usually a good idea to include
all the information described in "How to Report Bugs".
