Installation of GLib Networking

Install GLib Networking by running the following commands:

./configure --prefix=/usr             \
            --without-ca-certificates \
            --disable-static          &&
make

To test the results, issue: make -k check.

Now, as the root user:

make install

Command Explanations

--without-ca-certificates: This parameter forces use of PKCS #11 modules for TLS certificate validation instead of a bundle of certificates.

--disable-static: This switch prevents installation of static versions of the libraries.
