Installing XMMS Error with glib

This is the message I get after running ./configure
How do I check if I have iglib installed properly? As you can see I did a gli then hit TAB and found those entriies. Let me know what or if more info is needed.

checking for glib-config... no
checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
*** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
*** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to glib-config.
configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***
[root@localhost xmms-1.2.10]# gli
glibcbug glib-genmarshal glib-mkenums
glibc-post-upgrade glib-gettextize

Try this: yum install glib*

Also, I installed xmms using yum install xmms

Good Luck!

You don't mention what distribution you are using but if it's one of those that uses a RPM type package system there is probably a precompiled rpm for xmms.

You need glib-devel and gtk+-devel.
(found relevant info at )

[root@host xmms-1.2.10]# yum install glib-devel gtk+-devel
then ./configure again
