package does not update


Hi there,

I have a working Mandriva Free 2008.1 distribution and want to update glibc (version 2.7-12).

The Software Manager did not find glibc as an independent package, so...

I downloaded version 2.18.0. ./configure, make, make install work without any errors but rmp -q glibc returns the older version.

I have tried searching for an RMP package of glibc of version 2.17 or higher but till now I did not find it.

Any ideas?
Thanks

If you update a software from a tar ball dont expect it to go to the rpm database.
So you probably have the latest version of glibc.

updating packages

Thanks for replying,

When I try to compile other applications through ./configure the system says that it does not have the required version (too old).

Another example is:

"Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.17.6' but version of GLib is 2.16.2" or
No package 'atk' found

But i 'installed' 2.18.0 and atk 1.22.0
I even rebooted to make sure that the new packages would be loaded.
Do I have to uninstall the previous versions before?

Walter

Just to make things clear, there is a difference between glib and glibc. So is it glib or glibc that you are trying to install? or is it for different packages?

I dont see a reason why the other programs dont see the newer versions i.e. if the install went with out any errors.

Hi, I have found that source install generally install to /usr/local/bin

You may need to make some sym links to /usr/bin

glib fails on 'make'

OK, so the situation is this:

glibc seems to have been updated because ./configure does not display any warnings on it.

With regards to glib i redownloaded the file and it did compile.

The following error still remains on ./configure of gtk+-2.14.0:


Requested 'glib-2.0 >= 2.17.6' but version of GLib is 2.16.2
No package 'atk' found


Are there any command by which I can check the version no. of particular packages? some kind of alternative for rpm -q. Is it necessary to reboot Linux in order for it to embrace the newly installed packages?

Regards /usr/local/bin there are very few files in this dir, mainly Lilypond and Pango, and I found glib files in /usr/bin so I think the install dir is OK.

Thanks alot for your help
