Hi Manikandan,

You should use --with-xml=expat in the configure script.

Subject: Issue with dbus configure script

Hello All,

I am trying to cross compile dbus for ARM platform. I am using the following configure option 

./configure --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi

checking for XML_ParserCreate_MM in -lexpat... no
configure: error: Could not find expat.h, check config.log for failed attempts

I downloaded the expat source and got it cross-compiled. How do i specify dbus configure to use the cross-compiled directory for expat?

I tried the following configure script, it doesn't work

./configure --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu --host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi --with-xml=/home/mani/temproot/
