hey, i need some help here, been trying to figure this out for long time now...
I'm trying to install Mplayer, but i had lots of programs that was missing. so i started downloading and installing them but when i was supposed to install a program called atk-1.0.1 it said that i have several versions of a program called GLib. i cant use mandrakes packetremoval program because if i choose to uninstall version 2.2.1 of GLib it wants to remove my GCC, and i cant remove both because when i try to install GCC again it wants to install that old version of GLib.
This is the error log.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.3.1, but GLIB (2.2.1)
*** 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
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
So, my question is how can i remove the old GLib, or can i fix it someway else? i don't understand what i should modify in /etc/ld.so.conf
someone please help me out.
