If you're running Redhat 9, you need gtk2-2.2.1-4.src.rpm. Find it here.

Install it as root, typing:

rpmbuild --rebuild <packagename.src.rpm>
check the last few lines of the output to find out where the rpms end up (something like /usr/share/src/Redhat/RPMS) and install those with the regular

rpm -ivh <packagename.rpm>

Leon.

I believe it would be gtk2 that provides that library.
