Q. I’m trying to install lighttpd 1.5.0 while compiling source code I’m getting an error which read as follows:
checking for GTHREAD... configure: error: Package requirements (gthread-2.0 >= 2.4.0) were not met:
No package 'gthread-2.0' found
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively, you may set the environment variables GTHREAD_CFLAGS
and GTHREAD_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.
How do I fix this issue; I'm using Fedora Core 6.x.
A. You need to install a package called glib2-devel. Lighttpd 1.5.x+ requires glib2-2.4.0 or higher.
Type the following command if you are using Redhat (RHEL) or Fedora Core or Cent OS:
# yum install glib2-devel
If you are using Debian/Ubuntu try following command:
# apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
$ sudo apt-get install libglib2.0-dev
