I have run into a persistent problem when attempting to complile a program from source code. I have limited experience doing this, but I have tried this with several versions of gAIM and the result is always the same during the "./configure" process:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.
I know I have at least GLib v. 2.2.3 installed. This is very frustrating as the RPM version of the same application installs without issue. I had one successful compile from source code process work when I installed the latest GLib from www.gtk.org
the first time I encountered the problem.
I am using SuSE 9.0 Personal with kernel 2.4.21-99-default reporting.
Anything one could provide is appreciated.
