configure: error: event-config.h not found!

Post by fargo » Fri Nov 19, 2010 1:00 am

I run CentOS4 and installed the latest versions of all decencies required for Transmission, as per the wiki page. Now, I get the following error message after issuing the command './autogen.sh && make -s':

configure: error: event-config.h not found!

Any help please? Thanks :)

that wiki page is probably out of date since it was written when libevent was included in the transmission source package, but it isn't in now. it happened to me also running Debian, and solution was to:

apt-get install libevent-dev

which brings in version 1.4, older versions won't work. i googled around and in your case you might need to do something like:

yum install libevent-devel
