#60 closed defect (fixed)

Ubuntu doesnt need iconv. build fails

Reported by: yakumo9275@… Owned by: pulkomandy
Priority: minor Milestone: 2.5
Component: GrafX2 Version: 2.4
Keywords: iconv, ubuntu Cc:


Makefile has "-liconv" this is invalid on all the ubuntu deriviatives, maybe deiban as well, as iconv is part of libc, make files with -liconv present.

I dont know how to 'detect' if its needed or not to make the makefile work properly depending on which linux system its on (sorry I dont have a patch).

Can't we use pkg-config to detect it?

iconv is now part of libc as of POSIX 2008, so -liconv can be safely removed I think...

you fixed it with

It is difficult to auto detect the need of -liconv without some kind of configure script...
