liblogthread-dev is missing pkg-config file

Bug #627291 reported by Florian Haas on 2010-08-31

Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
redhat-cluster (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

liblogthread-dev should contain a pkg-config description, /usr/lib/pkgconfig/liblogthread.pc. The upstream Debian package, version 3.0.12-2 has this file. It is absent from the current Ubuntu version, 3.0.2-2ubuntu3.

This breaks the build process for any packages using liblogthread functionality in conjunction with pkg-config.

Hi Florian,

Could you please provide me with any example package that uses liblogthread-dev to build so I can test, and provide the adequate fix.

Thank you!

Andres, I'm not aware of any package that uses this at this point, but the missing pkg-config file is keeping me from building clusternet on ubuntu.

Try this:
git clone git://
cd clusternet

and then you get:

checking for logt... configure: error: Package requirements (liblogthread) were not met:
No package 'liblogthread' 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 logt_CFLAGS
and logt_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

liblogthread-dev is of course installed, it's just missing the appropriate .pc file.

Sorry for the delay. Do you still need this fixed?

Please test the new package that is located at my ppa, if you have the chance:

sudo apt-get install python-software-properties
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:andreserl/ha

Since maverick has 3.0.12-2ubuntu2, I assume this is fixed in maverick/natty.

Accepted redhat-cluster into lucid-proposed, the package will build now and be available in a few hours. Please test and give feedback here. See for documentation how to enable and use -proposed. Thank you in advance!
