aaarrrgggghhgh install nightmare


I'm having enormous problems with installing stuff....

I was at the page for plugger, i downloaded everything i needed...
i compiled glib2.0 and installed it (i thought), now, other programs are saying the old version is still there and they need the new version.
rpm -q reports the old version as stil present, locate reports the same.
So i went through the ./configure, make, make install routine again....
same results, all three processes run without error, the result is files that have disappeared!??!!!

I seem to do better with rpm's, though, i have installed xanim, rpm -q reports it as present, but all attempts to load it or run it or use it get me nowhere, no error msgs, no crash, no nothing.....



HELP

or

point me in the direction of help please....

the glib2 will be installing in /usr/local/lib
unless you use
configure --prefix=/usr
you need to keep your old glib anyway
run ldconfig
after installing libraries

also, if you want to see what a program needs
and what you have.
you can
ldd /usr/bin/programname
and you'll get a list of stuff its linked against.
