I downloaded glib 2.2.3. I ran the following commands in the
location where I decompressed the src:
as root. It looks like it succeed to me as I didnt see any error
msgs. Question #1: how do I know for certain?
Next, I downloaded xmms 1.2.8 and ran ./configure in the src location
for xmms and I get this error:
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install
I tried setting GLIB_CONFIG to /usr/local/lib where the lib files
are. I also tried setting it to the source location but I still can't
get xmms to configure. Question #2 is what should GLIB_CONFIG point
I've used locate, find and which to find a glib-config file. I have
not found anything on my system. I've read README and install in the
glib source dir. I've been to the gtk web. Searches on google
yielded a lot. Nothing proved helpful too me. I am really lost here.
I would be happy to RTFM if I could just find a FM to read :=)
I really would love to have an answer as to how to go about fixing
this....I'm begging plz :=)
