GLib 2.2.1


i have reasons to believe this is a very common problem....i'm almost new......i need to install GTK package and then ATK, but ATK needs GLiB, so here comes my problem, i recieve this message trying to install (i have Red Hat 9.0, and comes with GTK and GliB version 2.2.1), so as it says to me it didn`t found glib upper than 2.0......so 8 i installed GliB 2.0.7) and....:
.................................................................................................... .....................
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.0.7, but GLIB (2.2.1)
*** was found! If pkg-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/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
no
configure: error:
*** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
*** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/.
.................................................................................................... ......................
Same with GTK.....it don`t exist says gtk_config........help?.

I have two linux machines.
On one, the glib install went fine, and I managed to compile gtk+, and on the other I have the same problem as reported here (can't find glib2).

Does anyone know what differences I should look for in the configurations of the machinces?

A1Ph4, you didn't say what distro you are using, which is a really important issue. if it's rpm based like redhat or mandrake, install the glib-devel files to get source to compiile, you shouldn't be compiling from source for what you want to achieve.

I'm using RH9 on both machines.

I just saw that on the second machine glib2-devel was not installed (with the gnome developement). This may be the root case for all this.

Thanks,
Amir
