Try installing glib version 1.2.2 or above.
1) Download:
wget ftp://fr.rpmfind.net/linux/redhat/9/...10-10.i386.rpm
2) Install
rpm -ivh glib-1.2.10-10.i386.rpm

That's a dependency and that package must be installed before the program that you are installing. Your distro would be noticed easier if you put it in your profile similar to mine. Look to the left of the post.

Re-read the INSTALL and README files to see if you need some flags in your ./configure or you may need to edit the makefile to reflect your system's differences from what the code expects to find.

Why not install it using Red Hat's package manager?

redhat-config-packages

xmms=x multi-media system

Methinks you are looking for gkrellm and it is in Red Hat's packages. At least it is in release 7.3.

Have you considered installing apt4rpm?

apt-get install gkrellm

would do the job nicely.

i found gkrellm 2.1.5-3 on my redhat cd; i tried to run the package and it processed the headers, read individual package headers and closed.

it didn't give me any package dependency problems just closed and is now running idle

it did this when i tried to install samba from the rpms too

why does it do this?

It sounds like a corrupt rpm database. Try this hten the install again:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_*
rpm --rebuilddb

it took the rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_* command fine

but the second command came back with this error:

error: db4 error(16) from dbenv->remove: Device or resource busy

Do a:
ps -ef | grep rpm

Kill of any rpm proccesses that are running. Confirm that they have stopped:
ps -ef | grep rpm

Then try the rebuild again:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_*
rpm --rebuilddb

i ran the ps command and this is the response:

root 2640 2127 0 11:24 pts/1 00:00:00 grep rpm

does this mean i have a process running

i tried to kill it anyway, but i cldn't do it, i may have not been typing the command right

no - the processes have probably ended by now.

Try the rebuild again:
rm -f /var/lib/rpm/_*
rpm --rebuilddb
