glib-config problem
I was ./configure a software and error comes, how could i solve this issue

ecking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.10...
*** 'glib-config --version' returned 1.2.2, but GLIB (1.2.10)
*** was found! If glib-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLIB. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If glib-config was wrong, set the environment variable GLIB_CONFIG
*** to point to the correct copy of glib-config, and remove the file config.cache
*** before re-running configure

Did you follow the instructions provided by configure script?

NOTE: I'm fairly new to Linux myself, so if this is not correct, please correct me.

When glib was last configured someone might have used:


when they should have used:


./configure --prefix=/usr
You can check to see if this is the case by entering:

sudo find / -name glib-2.0.pc -print
If you see a search result for both (as below):


Then you know that is the problem.

If so, configure glib using


./configure --prefix=/usr/local
It should override the previous version of glib. Then you should be able to configure your other software.
