need help with gtkglare

Hi all,

I tried to install visual-2.1.9 for python2.2. When I type ./configure, the following error obtained
checkline GtkGlArea ... no
configure : error : gtkglarea is required on unix-like system

I have download the gtkglarea-1.2.2-16.src.rpm and install using rpm -ihv, and no error. I use RH9.

After that, I tried running ./configure again and the error above was still obtained.

If there are any suggestion about this problem

You're installing the SOURCE RPM, not the binary RPM. If the file has .src.rpm at the end, it is a source package. Install the binary version of the package (i.e. without the "src" bit).

I'm not familiar with the software you are trying to install, but if it has any "-devel" packages, install them too.
