Just trying to help.

As another clue, you may need to type “ldconfig” after you install
the libcares  library. At least that is sometimes needed on Ubuntu;
don’t know about slackware.

I downloaded from source (this is slackware so no packages)

What I need to know is what Quagga is looking for and we can then make sure it is there :)

I ran into this same thing on Ubuntu 14.0.4. I fixed it by doing:

  # apt-get install libc-ares-dev

After installing the libc-ares-dev package, the quagga configure
command worked fine.

Hope this helps.

 HI

I am moving this separate from the BGP thread I had.

I am trying to compile Quagga 1.2.0 on a Slakeware (14.1)

However I am getting:


--
checking whether system has GNU regex... checking for regexec in -lc... yes
checking for CARES... no
configure: error: Package requirements (libcares) were not met:

No package 'libcares' 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 CARES_CFLAGS
and CARES_LIBS to avoid the need to call pkg-config.
See the pkg-config man page for more details.

----

This is with Slakeware 14.1 (it also seems to fail on 14.1)

I have compiled / installed libcares but this has not as yet helped... Open to suggestions on what I am missing ...

Thanks in advance
