Alright, the script is looking for glib-config (similar to pkg-config). Try executing this:
glib-config --libs --cflags

linux:~ # glib-config --libs --cflags
bash: glib-config: command not found

Is this one of the things that might be in the devel packages?

Yeah, and that's why things are choking on you. You can run another find command to look for glib-config, but I don't think it'll be found. One thing to try is removing the devel, and reinstalling it. It's solely a development program, and I doubt it would be in the core/base package. If that doesn't fix it, then we can try to "fake it" with a small shell script (not ideal).

Ok. There was a reply you made on the first page that led me to believe it was already installed. I guess I misunderstood, or Suse was wrong when it told you what packages were installed. Once it's installed, that should fix the problem.

OK...i found glib-config:

linux:/home/jhartney # find / -name "glib-config"
/opt/gnome/bin/glib-config
/usr/local/bin/glib-config
/home/jhartney/Desktop/Trash/glib-1.2.2/glib-config
/home/jhartney/Desktop/Trash/glib-1.2.9/glib-config
find: /proc/18757/fd: No such file or directory
find: /proc/12356/fd: No such file or directory


But i'm getting the same exact error when i run ./configure from that last tarball you sent me

Bingo! Type this, and then give it another try:
PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/opt/gnome/bin

Alright, glad I could help, but there's still one other thing left to do.

That change will only stay until you log out of that shell. In fact, it wouldn't be present if you switched to another shell right now. So, we need to make it permanent. You'll need to modify one of two files.

If you are the only user of the system, open ~/.bash_profile in a text editor
If you're not the only person using the system, open /etc/profile in a text editor (you'll have to be root to modify the file in this case)

Look for a line similar to the one I told you to type. If you find one, just tack on the :/usr/local/bin:/opt/gnome/bin to the end. If you don't find a similar line, scroll to the bottom of the file and add this:
export PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/bin:/opt/gnome/bin

Save, exit, and then the change will be automatic next time you log in.

As for an intro to linux in general, I've heard lots of people like the Rute User's Tutorial. You can find a copy of it here:
http://burks.brighton.ac.uk/burks/linux/rute/

It looks like it covers just about everything. Otherwise, a Linux admin book or something similar at the bookstore can get you going. O'Reilly books tend to be good.
