im tring to install gnome-python-2.5.90 but it cant find the package pygtk-2.0, I have also downloaded it and installed it.. the errors that i get is...
checking for python extension module directory... ${exec_prefix}/lib/python2.3/site-packages
checking for headers required to compile python extensions... found
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for pygtk-2.0 >= 2.3.96... Package pygtk-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `pygtk-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'pygtk-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (pygtk-2.0 >= 2.3.96) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.
Do i have to login to gnome for this? cause.. i have checked in the dir where it was installed and i cant find that file.. looks like it didnt create it. Any ideas?

You should install Pygtk with:
./configure --prefix=/usr

Do a /sbin/ldconfig after the make install.

Gnome-Python also needs:
./configure --prefix=/usr

Just on the off chance that you may some day need pyorbit,
It's best to install this before the other two. (--prefix=/usr)

Just a note:

--prefix=/usr will put .pc files in /usr/lib/pkgconfig/
If a compile complains about not finding them, you can do:

eport PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/lib/pkgconfig
