I have a question about what is reported by ./configure and what is listed in the manuals.
checking for dbus-glib-1 >= 0.84... found, but 0.76 *** The required package dbus-glib-1 was found on your system, *** but the installed version (0.76) is too old.
Ok lets check installed.
SAPLNX1:/usr/sap/downloads # rpm -qa | grep dbus dbus-1-glib-0.76-34.22.1 dbus-1-python-0.83.0-27.1.43 dbus-1-qt3-0.62-223.1.43 yast2-dbus-client-2.17.0-0.1.65 dbus-1-devel-1.2.10-3.9.1 dbus-1-glib-32bit-0.76-34.22.1 dbus-1-1.2.10-3.27.1 dbus-1-32bit-1.2.10-3.27.1 dbus-1-glib-devel-0.76-34.10.1 yast2-dbus-server-2.17.4-0.5.118 dbus-1-x11-1.2.10-3.27.1 dbus-1-devel-doc-1.2.10-3.9.1
Ok I see dbus-1-glib-0 listed at 76 like configure reported BUT it said "dbus-glib-1"
so to get new version search the WWW
As my distro only has 76 available SLES 11 SP2.
I find dbus-glib-0.100.tar.gz
I find D-Bus GLib Bindings-0.100 theses look to be the same thing.
also find some RPM for dbus-1-devel which is reported by RPM in above screen.
But I am using a s390x Distro so nobody normally has RPM for it.
I have not tried a x86_64 rpm on this system but because its a Enterprise server I was reluctant to try any RPM not s390 platform.
The XFCE4 doc states DBUS-GLIB needed for xfconf.
So could someone shine a light on my confusion?
o I tried dbus 1.4.8 and it did not meet the lib needs.
dbus-glib.0.88 did met the needs.
SO I answered my own question the configure and manual are the ones to follow NOT the Distro.
