Conflicting SDL Version Problem


Okay, on Red Hat 9 SDL 1.2.5 was included. Now this was all fine and dandy until I needed to get the new version of StepMania working which required SDL 1.2.6 or higher, so back when I was a little less smart than I am now I just installed 1.2.6. I didn't see any problems but now I'm running into some.

*** 'sdl-config --version' returned 1.2.5, but the minimum version
*** of SDL required is 1.2.6. If sdl-config is correct, then it is
*** best to upgrade to the required version.
*** If sdl-config was wrong, set the environment variable SDL_CONFIG
*** to point to the correct copy of sdl-config, and remove the file
*** config.cache before re-running configure

So I have both versions on my comp but only 1.2.5 is registered. How can I remove 1.2.5 and tell my computer that it should point to 1.2.6 instead? I'm really confused. thanks a bunch.

EDIT: I wanted to check exactly what I had installed as far as SDL was concerned (I did all of these by RPM if memory serves me right) I thought this might be important/help.

[ynadji@localhost bin]$ rpm -qa | grep SDL
SDL-1.2.6-1
SDL_mixer-1.2.4-7
SDL_mixer-devel-1.2.4-7
SDL_net-devel-1.2.4-5
SDL_image-devel-1.2.3-1
SDL_image-1.2.3-1
SDL-1.2.5-3
SDL_net-1.2.4-5
SDL-devel-1.2.5-3

Remove both versions of SDL and then install 1.2.6. Assuming that you installed both versions using rpm I would use:
rpm --nodeps -e SDL
to remove SDL and keep repeating that command until it tells you that SDL is not installed. Then install the new version and configure it.
