Question ploblem installation glib with xmms


Hi ,
This is my first time using linux Mandrake 10 and under KDE3.2 , so i want to install xmms, but it display that i need to install glib and i download this "glibc-2.3.4.tar.tar" and i type command tar -zxvf glibc-2.3.4.tar.tar then it extract the files.

After i type "./configure" and it display error messages and said that not allow me to install on that source of file. I read the INSTALL and i am not quite understanding about few sentences.

What it mean about copy the libc to another directory and what files should i copy and another question. Could anyone tell me the step by step should i do to install xmms and glib.

Thanks.

You have the wrong file! You do NOT want glibc, that is the standard C library and is entirely different to glib which is a library for the Gimp Tookit (GTK).

You need to install gtk and glib (both versions 1.x and not 2.x). This can be done by using your distributions package manager urpmi, eg as root, do "urpmi xmms". this will install xmms and all its dependencies.
