ok, well, the file that I showed you is for MY system. you see, different distro's put stuff in different places. I don't really know where redhat puts it's stuff, but you can find out by doing this:
first run "updatedb" this will scan your system and make a database of you'r files
then run "locate glib | less" the " | less" part means to pipe the output to a program called less, then you can use the arrows or space key to scroll up and down the info, otherwise it would all pass by you really fast and you wouldn't be able to see it (try it).
The /etc/ld.so.conf paths should point to the path where ALL of your libraries are, not just gtk. it probably should point to /usr/lib.
you had to type /sbin/ldconfig because the programs in /sbin are not in your $PATH. this is the directories that bash scans when you type a command.
If you want to be able to run these commands w/ out having to type /sbin/ first, you can add it to your path by doing this:
edit HOME/.bash_profile (where HOME is /root if you are root, and /home/user if you are logged in as a different user)
Where it says PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin add ":/sbin:/usr/sbin:"
to the end of it
good luck, keep on posting if you need more help... i'm not sure if all of this will solve your problem.
