Gdome is the Gnome DOM engine, and aims to provide compatibility with all of DOM2 and some of DOM3 XPath. In eprints XML::GDOME is recommended as it's faster and uses much less RAM.

The article deals with missing glib-config in Fedora Core 3. (May be true for other versions of Fedora also).

The following RPMs are to installed for GDOME

gdome2-0.8.1-1.i386.rpm and gdome2-devel-0.8.0-1.i386.rpm

RPMs can be obtained from

-> ->

To install login as 'root' and execute the command given below:

->rpm -Uvh gdome2-0.8.1-1.i386.rpm gdome2-devel-0.8.1-1.i386.rpm

Fix the bug in gdome-config (already mentioned in Eprints2-wiki Installation on Readhat Enterprise Edition4)

To see the bug run -->gdome-config --libs

As root edit /usr/bin/gdome-config Around line 88 find these two lines: ->the_libs="$the_libs -L${exec_prefix}/lib -lgdome ` --libs` `xml2-config ->--libs`" ->the_flags="$the_flags -I${prefix}/include -I${prefix}/include/libgdome ` --cflags` `xml2-config --cflags`"

change them to this: ->the_libs="$the_libs -L${exec_prefix}/lib -lgdome `/usr/bin/glib-config ->--libs` `xml2-config --libs`" ->the_flags="$the_flags -I${prefix}/include -I${prefix}/include/libgdome ->`/usr/bin/glib-config --cflags` `xml2-config --cflags`"

If the following error occurs:

->No such file or directory /usr/bin/glib-config ->No such file or directory /usr/bin/glib-config

This means there is no glib-config file in Fedora Core 3. By default Fedora Core 3 has glib2-2.4.7-1, which doesn't seems to have glib-config.


To install GDOME we need to check for glib-config. glib-config is available in (glib-devel is needed to install XML::Gdome)

We can get glib1.2-devel rpm from

Then Install XML::GDOME ->XML::GDOME is a perl module that provides the DOM Level 2 Core API for ->accessing XML documents. It provides a XS wrapper around the gdome2 library.
