PKG-CONFIG, Installed Yet Not?
Well the name says it all was requested by glb ot install pkg-config so I did the install with all the default settings it installed fione I did the stardard ldconfig too, yet as soon as I do a configre in glib I still get the following error:

configure: error: *** pkg-config not found. See

yet when I do:

S01060020ed57a91d:/home/mike/glib-2.4.4 # whereis pkgconfig

I get this:

pkgconfig: /usr/lib/pkgconfig /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

There has to be something that I am missing here. Please anything would help. Thanks

pkconfig or pkg-config
/Documents/Downloads/glib-2.4.0$ whereis pkgconfig
pkgconfig: /usr/lib/pkgconfig /usr/local/lib/pkgconfig

/Documents/Downloads/glib-2.4.0$ whereis pkg-config
pkg-config: /usr/bin/pkg-config /usr/share/man/man1/pkg-config.1.gz

did you mean PKG-Config or PKGConfig

im not knowledgable enough on the damn thing, and didnt even know there was 2 different pkgconfig things until just now.. -i still have no idea what they do, mind.. although my pkg-config is saying ive got an olde glib installed, and I really need to upgrade it if, im to get GKrellm working. (see other thread in this forum.. same problem everyone else is having, with GTK / Glib...

Perhaps /usr/local/bin isn't in your $PATH? Maybe you should install it in /usr? But first, uninstall what you've just installed.

tar xzf pkgconfig-0.15.0.tar.gz
cd pkgconfig-0.15.0
make uninstall
cd ../
rm -rf pkgconfig-0.15.0
tar xzf pkgconfig-0.15.0.tar.gz
cd pkgconfig-0.15.0
./configure --prefix=/usr
make install
