I am very new to linux,,,,I tried installing Gmedia renderer in Redhat Linux.It required following libraries

libupnp-1.3.1 ,,, Gstreamer-0.8.7 & Gstreamer plugins-0.8.6

I installed the above libraries and when I tried installing Gmedia renderer the ./configure worked and then it gave me the following error.

A better way in my opinion would be to leave the tarballs alone and install rpm packages. To look for your packages & depedencie google for "pkgname rpm",or go to advance search in and deselect all os versions except yours. Then tick the "Filename" and "provides" checkboxes below the OS checkboxes. Download the required package and install as root with rpm -iv pkgname.rpm
