installing GTK+2.2.0 (issues with atk-1.2.0 & pango-1.2.0)


If anyone can provide some assistance with this it would be GREATLY appreciated...

First I am running Redhat 9.0 on my Dell Inspiron 5100. Everything installed very easily, no issues aside from the integrated bcm4400 NIC.

I have successfully installed other software mplayer, etc... (Actually the --guiMplayer is what all of this is for, it requires gtk's)

I tried to install the gtk+-2.2.0 and it told me that I needed glib-2.0.0 or above installed. I have successfully installed glib, when I tried to run the install for gtk+ i get this:
Package atk was not found in the pkg-config search path.

This makes sense, I have not installed atk-1.0.1 yet. So I switch to the directory and run the ./configure and I recieve the following:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
[
I thought that I had GLIB-2.2.1 already installed. I am unsure how I can check to see if GLIB is installed or not...

I tried to move onto to Pango-1.2.0 to Pango-1.2.2 and they all tell me the following:
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.1.3... no
*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occured. This usually means GLIB is incorrectly installed.
configure: error:
*** Glib 2.1.3 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.

I have tried to find GLIB-2.1.3 at ftp.gtk.org and the latest they have is GLIB-2.2.1 which is the one that I have installed...

if you need any more information or have any ideas please let me know.

To start with
Doesn't Redhat includes gtk2.2 with its distro.
rpm -q gtk2
and
rpm -q gtk2-devel

rch... Thanks for the reply, I noticed I didn't mention that up until two weeks ago I was a full Windows user, so I am very new to Linux.

Here is the output! It appears that the gtk is installed however the devel is not!

[root@LINLAP01 root]# rpm -q gtk2
gtk2-2.2.1-4
[root@LINLAP01 root]# rpm -q gtk-devel
package gtk-devel is not installed

Thanks.

you looked for gtk-devel, not gtk2-devel.

easiest way to see everything would be...

rpm -qa | grep gtk

which will catch every pacakge with gtk in the name

well you're running on redhat, so i'd advise you to just use the RPM files. if you start installing software like gllib from source then the rpm database will not know that it is installing and thus refuse to install anything that needs it, unless you force it regardless.

Figured it out... here is the DVD player I used. This was the easiest to install and configure. Found it by looking at what the Xwindow system was trying to start when a dvd is detected in drive.

Thanks for everyone's help!
