Redhat 9 - GTK+-2.6.4

ok, so I have recently installed Redhat 9 (crossing over from windows) and with a few good pointers from this forum I am loving it.

Now I have installed a few pieces of software with the ./configure make,make install and used rpms. Now im only telling you this so you know where im coming from.

Now so I can use the latest bluefish I am trying to install gtk-+2.6.4 which says it needs atk, pango and glib

Ive got them ive run the ./configure mak,mak inst on them and gtk still sayes it needs glib.

Basically it seems to be installing fine but actually it doesnt..?

Any points as Ive searched around but cant solve this one myself.

there are countless threads on this, do a search for glib or gtk and you should find it no problem. Basically, ./configure, make, make install is not what you want alot of the time. you can do it here ( with gtk and deps), but you will have to set things up manually. make sure you don't have these libs installed already ( in /usr) and redo them with ./configure --prefix=/usr, make, etc.. also, you should check into making rpm's of your builds, if you do "make install" it doesn't upgrade the rpm database, so when you try to install an rpm that depends on gtk it will fail as rpm has no idea that you built one from source.

You could also try a more recent distro. Red Hat 9 is incredibly out of date. CentOS 4.0 will give you a stable Red Hat Distro that has a long support cycle. Fedora Core 3 is a more bleeding edge distro, but has a very short support cycle. They are way more up to date than Red Hat 9, and they are both Red Hat Distros (well, actually, CentOS is a clone of RHEL but it is practically identical.)
