Problem installing pygtk-2.9.0
I want to install this package on my fedora core 5 system.
It is a tar package. I untarred it.
Then now when I run the ./configure script, I get the following error.

checking pkg-config is at least version 0.9.0... yes
checking for PYGOBJECT... configure: error: Package requirements (pygobject-2.0 >= 2.10.0) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively you may set the PYGOBJECT_CFLAGS and PYGOBJECT_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for
more details.

I had configured the pygobject from the source and its version was 2.10.0.
I'm new to linux and don't know how to set these variables.
Plz help.

To set environment variables you use the "export" command - so for example since you installed pygobject from source it was likely installed in /usr/local, but PKG_CONFIG_PATH is only finding the ones in /usr. To set it properly, run the following in a terminal right before ./configure for pygtk:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

How about just doing "yum install pygtk2".
