Hi all. I've gone about as far as I can with this without trashing my system. I'm running Mint 10 LXDE with XFCE.
Ultimate objective: Install latest Anjuta 3.0 from source (not yet in repos)
Anjuta ./configure reported a need for updated packages, such as GTK 3.0, Glib, Gio, etc.
I downloaded GTK 3.0 and 'config' reported a need for an updated Glib. So I downloaded that and have installed it successfully (no prefixes; from home dir.)
But now GTK config is stating that it has found two versions of Glib, which I guess makes sense since I made no attempt to replace the old one.
So, what is/was the proper way to replace the old Glib so there is only one version, or, is that a bad idea? Will some software still be dependent on the old Glib, or do the devs make the libraries backward compatible? Where do I go from here?
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.28.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.28.6, but GLIB (2.26.1)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
*** GLIB 2.28.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/gtk/.
