ATK for GTK+ installation problems with GLIB


I hate to sound blunt.. but

Code:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.1, but GLIB (2.0.6)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
no
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
what is that and how do i fix it? Obviously I have 2 versions of glib installed, as I just upgraded that as well... I'm unsure as how to remove the old version (what directory it would be in, whats safe to delete etc.)

Did you run '/sbin/ldconfig' after you installed the newer version?
Did you set (or change) the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH in your /etc/profile? You will also need to re-read that profile as well (usually in ~/.bashrc) by just doing a 'source ~/.bashrc'.

To see if it worked 'echo $LD_LIBRARY_PATH'

how are you installing the software? if it's rpm, try "rpm -qa | grep glib" and see what that says. i can't see how you managed to get in that situation, maybe you simply installed the wrong glibc-devel pacakge.

Yes I ran /sbin/ldconfig.

I am installing from source.

I think the problem is I had a version of GTK, then installed a newer version without removing the older one. Now im not sure what to do (I'm not even sure what files to delete to remove the old one).

well it says that glib is at fault, not gtk. it's how you installed glib, not gtk or atk that matters. maybe if you provide a tiiny bit more info about your system, (fill in your profile!) then we can get a bit further

I have the same problem running RedHat 8.0. I have no reference to LD_LIBRARY_PATH in the /etc/profile file! And when I echo$ LD_LIBRARY_PATH nothing happens ( a feild of black space appears where there would be a response ). What should the variable in the /etc/profile look like? MIde looks like this:

# /etc/profile

# System wide environment and startup programs, for login setup
# Functions and aliases go in /etc/bashrc

pathmunge () {
if ! echo $PATH | /bin/egrep -q "(^|$1($|" ; then
if [ "$2" = "after" ] ; then
PATH=$PATH:$1
else
PATH=$1:$PATH
fi
fi
}

# Path manipulation
if [ `id -u` = 0 ]; then
pathmunge /sbin
pathmunge /usr/sbin
pathmunge /usr/local/sbin
fi

pathmunge /usr/X11R6/bin after

unset pathmunge

# No core files by default
ulimit -S -c 0 > /dev/null 2>&1

USER="`id -un`"
LOGNAME=$USER
MAIL="/var/spool/mail/$USER"

HOSTNAME=`/bin/hostname`
HISTSIZE=1000

if [ -z "$INPUTRC" -a ! -f "$HOME/.inputrc" ]; then
INPUTRC=/etc/inputrc
fi

export PATH USER LOGNAME MAIL HOSTNAME HISTSIZE INPUTRC

for i in /etc/profile.d/*.sh ; do
if [ -r "$i" ]; then
. $i
fi
done

unset i


any help would be great....I too have upgraded to 2.2.X!!!
