Installing gnome 2.4


hey,
I'm trying to install gnome 2.4 and I'm haveing some troubles. Each packages I try to install I get this error:

checking for glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.0.1... Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'glib-2.0' found

configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.1.4 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >=
1.0.1) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

----

Then I added a PKG_CONFIG_PATH to my .bash_profile with the paath where my packages are ( /home/supermax/gnome2.4 ) but still no results....

TIA, Max.

It isn't having trouble finding your packages, it can't find the libraries. You need to tell it where glib-2.0, etc. are. Do you have the required versions installed?

No. You just have to make sure you have at least the minimum version of all the required libraries installed. For example, what version of glib-2.0 do you have installed? What version of pango? Etc.

As for release numbers, even numbers (2.2, 2.4, etc.) are user releases. Odd numbers (2.1, 2.3, etc.) are unstable development versions.

is there a way to find out if I have glib 2.0 ? I looked in rpmdrake and I don't have it installed, but how you find out programs compiled by yourself? not from RPM?

They usually live in /usr/lib, so have a look around there, or use whereis to see if they live somewhere else on your system.
