Hey Brett, thanks for the info and url. It certainly give me new knowledge.
FYI, I've already done it before(compiling gaim1.5) and successfully installed it. But I forgot the steps how I accomplished the job and having a difficult time remembering it.Hehe...
Right now, I'm facing a new problem. The pkg-config is now working, but the gtk+ seems have gone missing.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... yes (version 2.2.3)
checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for GTK+ - version >= 2.0.0... no
*** Could not run GTK+ test program, checking why...
*** The test program failed to compile or link. See the file config.log for the
*** exact error that occurred. This usually means GTK+ is incorrectly installed.configure: error:
*** GTK+ 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GTK+
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GTK+ is
*** always available at http://www.gtk.org/.
I checked with the yast and found that gtk2 (version 2.2.4) was already installed(or did I
). I don't know if I have to configure gtk or not in this case. Any idea?
