compile error on libzip:adjust PKG_CONFIG_PATH

Hi,

I tried to compile the mysql workbench. I get to this stage:
checking for ZIP... configure: error: Package requirements (libzip) were not met:

No package 'libzip' 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 ZIP_CFLAGS
and ZIP_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

Open in new window


So I run the yum install:
[root@seokingdomheaven mysql-workbench-gpl-5.2.38-src]# yum install libzip
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror
Repository remi is listed more than once in the configuration
Repository remi-test is listed more than once in the configuration

But I still get the error. How do I adjust the PKG_CONFIG_PATH and where do find out where the libzip is?
Running find / -name libzip returns nothing.

Thanks,
Victor

Hi!

Try:
# locate libzip

Maybe you need the developement package of libzip?
libzip-devel

The file you are missing is called libzip.pc. Its correct location is /usr/lib/pkgconfig/libzip.pc.
Google does find a libzip-devel as Tobias suggested - that looks like what you need. It will also supply /usr/include/zip.h I expect.
