upgraded glib but problems

Hi, I downloaded glib and compiled it, installed it and everything was ok (on my knoppix hd installed system without gnome). But after that I tried to install pango and it said it expected 2.x.x but found (the newer) 2.4.0 and suggested to uninstall the older first. Now I'm confused since another thread ( tells me I shouldn't. And it also doesn't tell how I could.
Should I buy another computer or is there an answer?

That thread isn't relevent. The questioner asks about glib and the answer talks about glibc. These are two totally different things so the answer is wrong.
In your situation, what you need to do is tell pango to use the version of glib you just installed. If you just installed glib-2.4 with
make install
then it will be in /usr/local and you can point to it with some variables
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"
Then try again with pango. No, you don't need to buy another computer, unless you want to.

Hi and thank you for your answer. It solved my problem. I do wonder how newbies are supposed to gather all that knowledge though.
