I just tried installing the newest version of xmms and it decided to tell me that:
code:#tar -xvzf xmms-someversion.tar.gz
then I get this error message
"checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***"
I say fine, and I go pick up the latest tar.gz of glib (2.4.8). I go through the install (tar -xvzf, cd, ./configure, make, su root, make install) and everything is fine. I go back to complete my xmms installion:
And I end up with the same error message as before! Whats going on?
Ps. I know that this means ./configure cannot find my Glib updated packages. However I don't know where my updated packages are, and I don't know how to telll ./configure (as well as make and make install), where they are.
Pps. It would also be nice if I were able to move these Glib packages to a place where other "./configure's, make, and make install"s will be able to find and use them.
