libgpod install problem
« on: February 15, 2008, 07:33:03 am »

I'm trying to use checkinstall to install libgpod but I get the following error:

========================= Installation results ===========================
Making install in src

****  Installation failed. Aborting package creation.

The static library exists in the source package:
root:# find ./ -name libgpod.a

I tried man ginstall and it says the -c flag is ignored.

Any ideas?
