dunno what to do with these error


Well trying to compile gxine gui and this is the error message i get

Package gtk+-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'gtk+-2.0' found
configure: error: Package requirements (gtk+-2.0 >= 2.2.0) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively you may set the GTK2_CFLAGS and GTK2_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for
more details.
[root@localhost gxine-0.4.5]#

I do have gtk installed gtk2.0 and the sub folder says 2.4.0

anyone can insturct me as what i can do to overcome this problem pls

You'll need the gtk+-2.0-devel package. The regular package is only the runtime binary, not suitable for development (i.e., compiling packages that need it).

that's not what it says...

try locate gtk+-2.0.pc
it should be i that pkgconfig path which means /path/to/pkgconfig/gtk+-2.0.pc

if you find it do:
PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/path/to/pkgconfig
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH

then re-run ./configure

if you dont find it, then macemoneta is right, you need that package...

cheers -JK

From the Mandrake 10.1 mirrors, like this one:

http://mandrake.mirrors.pair.com/Man...86/media/main/

I believe the package you want on Mandrake 10.1 is called libgtk+2.0_0-devel-2.4.9-9mdk.i586.rpm.

I am sure your problems can be solved by installing the gtk2 devel package by doing as root,
Code:
#urpmi libgtk+2.0_0-devel
If you haven't set up urpmi sources for your installation, then go to easyurpmi for a list of repositories.
