Question Where does GLIB 2.6.0 normally install to?


I'm getting the error message below when trying to configure pango. I've installed GLIB 2.6.0 already and I'm guessing that software like GLIB will all install to the same place on the PC but Ijust don't know where!
Any suggestions will be appreciated, Cheers, Dom.

*** Could not run GLIB test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding GLIB or finding the wrong
*** version of GLIB. If it is not finding GLIB, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
***
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error:
*** Glib 2.5.7 or better is required. The latest version of
*** Glib is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.

It would be helpful if you let us know what distro you are using.

Hi,

in general Glib is in /usr/lib
to be sure that it's installed check that you have a directory named /usr/lib/glib-2.0/

If you are compiling it from source, do
$./configure --prefix=/usr
