Unhappy xmms says cant find glib, and wont install,but i have it !


Hi,
I am new to linux, i tried my hands on fc 6 with gnome, and hear that xmms is real good at playin mp3s, i get it and do ./configure. Then it tells me i need the GLIB, i download both GLIB and GTK and install them, still the same problem,.....i check out some forums and docs and find these are supposed to be there in any good distro.,...so what now says i ? i have seen solutions to use yum , but i dont have a net connection and so cant use that,.....if any of you could help me in any other way,...will be really greatfull.
I have a feeling that it has something to do with exporting the library o something,....with the export path or sometjing like that,...but please do explain as i dont know how these work.....cheers....

You probably just need to install the devel versions of those missing packages.

Could you possibly post the output it gives when you try to install it? Sometimes you think its complaining about one thing and it is really more concerned with something a couple lines up. That and we could probably help you better if we knew more of what was going on.

You snapshot says, that you don't have glib version higher than 1.2.2. And i could see glib-config doesn't exist, if you have one then set in the path to GLIB_CONFIG

export GLIB_CONFIG=/path/to/glib-confg.

Else you can try installing rpm (have look at Installing xmms music player on Fedora )
