Question gtk


Hi!

I would like to know if its possible to have both gtk 1.2 and 2.x on the same system. I guess I could install them in different directories, but then how would applications know where which version is located?

Thanks!

they do get installed side by side just fine. the pacakge names are gtk and gtk2, and are designed to be together. just don't upgrade to gtk2, install it (i.e rpm -i not rpm -U) they have different file names for drviers and all, so they are distinguished and used in the same way as any other package, from a #include <gtk2.h> in a c code file rather than <gtk.h> etc.

Thank you very much for clearing all that up
