Can't Install xmms


downloaded xmms-1.2.10

i unziped it and then runed ./configure in consol
When it was finshed did i get this messege

** 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 first ***

I guess that i shoud install glib but where, how and where can i get it.

what distobution do u use ??

as its simpler to use a package managment (apt,yum,urpmi,...) for installing software as it will install any other package that xmms needs

e.g. for apt u just type : apt-get install xmms

no it isnt nessecary

mandrake is quite easy to use

u will find xmms in the cds so just open mandrake control center -> software manager -> install software then type xmms

its that easy

and to setup urpmi which is mandrake's package manager which will let u install other software that are not on the cds as easy as above just go to this site
