    Syslog-ng v2.0 installation error


    I'm trying to install syslog-ng v2.0 and I keep getting this error. Errorlog is installed and the glib libraries too which provide the pkg_config files.

    Error messages occur when running "make".

    checking for EVTLOG... configure: error: Package requirements (eventlog) were not met:
    No package 'eventlog' 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 EVTLOG_CFLAGS
    and EVTLOG_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
    See the pkg-config man page for more details.
    I've looked on the web and some sites say I should do the following commands prior to running "make", but the errors remain.

    # EVTLOG_LIBS=/usr/local/lib/
    # export EVTLOG_LIBS
    # PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
    # export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    Any thoughts on what could be wrong?

    I had this problem when I upgraded Fedora. Try using just the

    # PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig/
    # export PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    and clear out your EVTLOG_LIBS definition. That can be done by logging in and out.

    Thanks. That fixed it.
