Question Installing GTK+


Hi I'm trying to install GTK+-2.0.6 and I got this error:

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.0.6 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

I have earlier versions of pango and atk.. should I just install over them or first remove them? and if I have to remove them.. please tell me how Thanks in advance for any help.

rpm -Uvh blah.rpm

Thanks for replying Actually I have them in tarball format.. I downloaded them from http://www.gtk.org/download/ I do know how to upgrade an rpm but I am clueless about tarballs.. should I use "--prefix" to install them over earlier versions I have? Sorry about asking basic questions

I installed the rpm's.. then ran into a zillion failed dependencies I'm on dial up and it's a pain to search for and install all the missing elements.. that's why I've found tarballs easier..but I still don't know how to install a newer version tarball when I have an existing one.. unlike rpm where I can simply use "U" I am clueless about upgrading with tarballs...I know I'm being a pain in the neck newbie
