Installed Glib-2.17.2, pkg-config displays 2.8.1, so gtk-2.13 unable to install


Hi,
I am using Mandriva 2006.
I have installed GLIB version 2.17.2 using (./configure;make;make install)
But if I try to find the running version of glib using the command pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0 it displays 2.8.1

Similarly when I try to install the GLIB version 2.17.2 using (./configure;make;make install) commands also it displays it has been installed successfully.
But still the pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0 it displays 2.8.1
so gtk-2.13 is not getting installed as it requires higher version than that.

Can someone help me in this regards?

Thanks
Nilesh

./configure;make;make install put glib in the /usr/local hierarchy. I suspect your old version of glib is installed in the /usr hierarchy. Set PKG_CONFIG_PATH to look in /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig first.

yes you are right
so i resolved it by using ./configure -- prefix=/usr

Thanks a lot for your help
Now glib version returned as 2.17.3

That's another way of doing it, but I wasn't going to recommend it because your new glib libraries overwrite your old ones. Anything that was built against glib-2.8.1 and uses functions, variables, etc. that have been deprecated since may be broken. Upgrading glib means there's a good chance you'll need to rebuild other apps.
