Question Gaim 0.68 for mandrake 9.1


I have downloaded the latest version of gaim source code ( 0.68) for my mandrake 9.1. When I ran ./configure i got an error message saying that glib version 2.0 is not available.

So I downloaded latest version of glib source code (2.0.7, I think) from and installed in my mandrake machine.

Even after this when I did a ./configure for the gaim I was getting the same error.

What shall I do now? Do I need to set some environment variable for the configure to detect glib?

Any help is appreciated..

After going through the threads related to this problem, I decided to install the development packgaes from the Mnadrake 9.1 CD directly. The installation went fine and I installed gtk , glib and all the dependent libraries. I did ldconfig , exported the PKG_CONFIG_PATH etc...

The problem still appears!. Probably I may not be doing the installtion in the correct order?.

Can somebody post the exact step that one should follow to install gaim0.68 and related packages?.

I am sure many people are going face the same problem..
