This is my first attempt at installing software without Ubuntu's add/remove thingy. I'm using the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CompilingEasyHowTo
, which told me to install cvs, build-install, checkinstall, and subversion, all of which I did.
I'm now trying to install XMMS using their tar.gz archive.
I've got the package uncompressed, and I run ./configure. After some activity, I get the following message:
*** 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 looked through Synaptic and found numerous references to glib, so I'm guessing it's already installed, just not configured properly... maybe... and now I'm stuck. Can anyone shed some light on this?
