Newbie Needs Help w/ Gimp/GTK compile


Hey all, I'm trying to compile and install gimp 2 from sources. I downloaded the tarball, unpacked it, and ran ./configure. it told me i needed GTK >= 2.2 something, so I got GTK 2.4 off the website (followed link from gimp.org) and did ./configure on that. It told me that among other things I needed a higher version glib, so I went to the same ftp site that I got GTK from and pulled the glib package. Then I ran (as root)

./configure
make
rm -rf /install-prefix/include/glib.h /install-prefix/include/gmodule.h
make install

The result was a lot of output (containing no obvious error messages, just a lot of "nothing to do for directory /..." messages)

However, when I run gtk+-2.4.0/configure, it still tells me i need 'glib-2.0 >= 2.4.0 but version of GLib is 2.2.3". What am I doing wrong???

-Alex

well to be asking those questions, i'd say what you're doing wrong is trying to compile them in the first place there's little real benefit in compiling gtk and glib from source... and besides that they ARE already installed on your system. to compile code based on these libraries you need to install the development packages that come with the main ones, e.g. gtk+-devel-2.4.0.i686.rpm

Gimp 2.0 and GTK >= 2.2 do not come with mandrake 10.0 Community (unless they updated w/o changing the version #). Thanks for the advice.

*edit: there are no -devel packages or tarballs in the main gtk directory...?

maybe not gimp, but i'm sure gtk is there. and if not, there are still cooker rpms out there for you.

I'm having the exact same problem. Where can we find rpm's? I've googled to no end and only found a pre-2.0 release.
