Xlib problem


Hi,

I'm trying to install gtkwave - however when i type ./configure i see an error message about:

checking for glib_config ... no
checking for glib - version => 1.2.0 ... no
.
.
.

configure: error cannot find GLIB: is gtk-config in the path



any thoughts how i get around this?

i've download what i think is the latest glib rpm...

I've went to package manager and filtered for glib, i got the following

glib-1.2.10-10.i386.rpm
glib2-2.2.1-1.i386.rpm
glibc-2.3.2-11.9.i686.rpm
glibc-common-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm
glibc-devel-2.3.2-11.9.i386.rpm
glibc-kernheaders-2.4-8.10.i386.rpm


But when i do the configure i still get the following error

checking for glib-config... no
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.0... no
*** 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: Cannot find GLIB: Is gtk-config in path?

once installing the package, was the anything else i should have done?

you're missing glib-devel-1.2.10-10.i386.rpm (assuming that it was that version of glib you're already running.

yep i downloaded that...

and clicked on it - the package manager opens and closes very quickly...
So i tried it from the terminal....

[root@localhost root]# rpm -ivh glib-devel-1.2.10-10.i386.rpm


but it has stayed like that for a good ten minutes?

the rpm i guess is alright...

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 113483 Oct 22 18:33 glib-devel-1.2.10-10.i386.rpm
