Installing XMMS

Ok, when I do a ./configure for XMMS (After all, we have to listen to music on the new PC, don't we?)

I get this:

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The gtk-config script installed by GTK could not be found
*** If GTK was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GTK_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to gtk-config.
configure: error: *** GTK+ >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

So I downloaded gtk+-1.2.9 and got it installed.
But when I went BACK to XMMS I got this error msg.

checking for GTK - version >= 1.2.2...
*** 'gtk-config --version' returned 1.2.9, but GTK+ (1.2.10)
*** was found! If gtk-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GTK+. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If gtk-config was wrong, set the environment variable GTK_CONFIG
*** to point to the correct copy of gtk-config, and remove the file config.cache
*** before re-running configure

So it seems that gtk 1.2.10 is on my system, but isn't registering? Is that right?
Running Mandrake 10.

Thanks as always

So does that mean you installed gtk+-1.2.9 from source with ./configure, make, make install? The simple thing to do would have been to use the Mandrake package management tools to install libgtk-1.2-devel (that's not the exact name but I'm not rebooting just to look it up). Though now I come to think of it xmms should be on the Mandrake 10 CD's. It certainly was with Mandrake 9.1.
Anyway, I've wandered off topic. Try the Mandrake Control Centre, it should be possible to install what you need there. If that doesn't work you should be able to compile xmms from the source by setting these variables first.
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib/pkgconfig:$PKG_CONFIG_PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
export LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib"
