gtk+-2.2.4 not installing due to lack of glib


Hello,

I have looked through SO many HOW-TOs and so many threads and i cant figure out what to do. I've been trying for a week to get GAIM 0.68 installed on my PC.

I order to do this, i require gtk and in order to install gtk, I need glib. I dowloaded gtk+-2.2.4 and glib-2.0.0.

I followed the INSTALL file for glib, that is, ./configure, make, make install. Everything went without a problem.

Then I tried to install gtk. When I type ./configure, it checks for a bit and then returns:



checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4' but version of GLib is 2.0.0

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >=
1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.



At which point it stops. I have tried the export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig command as suggested by some threads, but it didn't work.

I feel like I am very close and just need one piece of the jigsaw.

PLEASE help. Thanks in advance for any help.

how about installing the correct version of glib, this on perhaps? although why are you installing from source, all you need is the gtk/glib development rpm's im sure someone in the red hat forum can tell you where they are.

Thanks for your quick response.

When you reffer to the gtk/glib development rpm's, are these the same as GTK tools?

many thanks for your time

ive never really used an rpm based distribution myself so i dont know anything about rpm's but it looks to me like you would want this and this if you ask on the red hat forum which rpms you need for gtk2 and glib2 development im sure they'll help you out.
