Dear Glib maintainers, I’ve been unable to build Glib-1.322 (neither 1.323) on OS X (10.11 El Capitan). Either when trying ‘sudo cpanm Glib’ or trying to build from the .tar.gz sources, I’ve encountered the same error: Show quoted text
> error: '_GStaticAssertCompileTimeAssertion_0' declared as an array with a negative size
On the other hand, glib-2.48.2 seems to have been installed without any problem (using Homebrew). If you know anything I can do to solve this, I would be very thankful ! Thanks a lot, Benjamin Renaud p.-s. : attached is the complete build.log file ; I don’t know if it’s important, but typing ‘uname -a’, I get: Show quoted text

Are you sure that there's nothing in your environment, or in the root user's environment, that might be picked up when the Makefile.PL script in Glib is being run via 'sudo'? For example, do you have XQuartz or GIMP for Mac installed and set in your $PATH? Do you have any cross-compiling toolkits installed? Suggestion: use a fresh Perl via plenv/perlbrew as a normal user on OS X. This is how I compile and run the GTK Perl modules on OS X, using C libraries and Perl installed via Homebrew/plenv.

Thanks a lot for the quick answer! I’m not sure, but I don’t think I have anything special installed on my desktop mac. However, following your suggestion, I tried with my other computer (a brand new laptop, I almost hadn’t installed anything yet) the following: — installing perlbrew and homebrew; — installing fresh new perl (5.24.0); — installing pkg-config, pango, cairo, glib, gtk+ via homebrew; — installing Glib via cpanm (without sudo); — installing Gtk2 via cpanm (idem). Glib build was successful this time, but not Gtk2… Am I missing something? Attached is the build.log for Gtk2. Once again, thanks a lot if you can help! Benjamin

Hi. Can you please post this issue to the gtk2-perl mailing list [1], and/or open a separate ticket in the Gtk2 RT queue? I'm going to close this ticket, since your original Glib problem has been solved. Thanks, Brian [1] https://mail.gnome.org/mailman/listinfo/gtk-perl-list
