    I'm trying to get irssi running through my terminal. But compiling it is proving to be some trouble. I've tried using the steps listed in this site:

    http://somethingabsurd.net/index.ph...e-irssi-for-mac-osx&catid=23:macosx&Itemid=89

    But it always comes up with an error saying I don't have glib installed (I've tried installing it many times using the 2.6.6 build)

    Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong, or help find step by step instructions? I've been looking everywhere.

    Thanks in advanced :)

    Be sure you aren't forgetting the sudo make install command when you install GLib. I did that when I compiled Wine...took a couple days to figure out why Wine wouldn't work. :eek:

    Yes, I use the commands given directly from the link I provided, so I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong.

    Alright, in case this helps, I'll list what's displayed when I try to use "./configure && make && sudo make install" on each directory (as it says in the above link)

    expat [2.0.1]: seems to compile and install correctly, no errors displayed from what I see.

    libiconv [1.13.1]: also seems to compile and install correctly.

    gettext [0.17]: (This one takes forever to compile). Seems to compile and install correctly, though these are displayed near the end:

    Making install in tests
    make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
    make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
    make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
    make[3]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.
    make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-exec-am'.
    make[2]: Nothing to be done for `install-data-am'.​

    pkg-config [0.23]: Not sure about this one. No obvious error messages.

    Glib [2.6.6]: Errors:

    /var/folders/lV/lVzavENWGwSHZ10XKhal3U+++TI/-Tmp-//ccsfP1ow.s:103:Incorrect register `%rdx' used with `l' suffix
    make[4]: *** [gatomic.lo] Error 1
    make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    pcre [8.00]: also seems to install correctly.

    Ncurses [5.7]: Errors:

    ld: library not found for -lcrt0.o
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
    make[1]: *** [tic] Error 1
    make: *** [all] Error 2

    irssi [0.8.14]: Errors:

    checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.7... yes
    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.6.0... no
    *** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
    *** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
    *** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
    *** trying without -lgmodule
    checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
    checking pkg-config is at least version 0.7... yes
    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.6.0... no
    *** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
    *** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
    *** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.

    *** If you don't have GLIB, you can get it from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/glib/
    *** We recommend you get the latest stable GLIB 2 version.
    *** Compile and install it, and make sure pkg-config finds it,
    *** by adding the path where the .pc file is located to PKG_CONFIG_PATH

    configure: error: GLIB is required to build irssi.

    I hope this helps. It seems like I'm asking a lot, but I'm really at a loss here and would like to get this working.
