Problem configuring gxine to install.


Ok, while trying to configure gxine for installation I have had two problems so far. The first was related to dev dependencies being unable to install, which I fixed by downgrading some lib. Now I have a different problem:

Code:
checking for GLIB2... configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.2.0) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you
installed software in a non-standard prefix.

Alternatively you may set the GLIB2_CFLAGS and GLIB2_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config.  See the pkg-config man page for
more details.
I checked the man page, but there's too much stuff in it that I think I'll never figure out what to do myself. Could someone help me out here? Just to note, the version of glib-2.0 I have right now is 2.6.5-1.

I'm using Debian.

OIh, I figured out what I THINK I have to do, which is declaring CFLAGS and LIBS, but I not sure which ones. I thought -GTK2 might do it, but it didn't.

have you tried adding Debian Backports to your sources.lst

http://backports.org/

and then doing an

apt-get install gxine

which should then download and install all required dependencies, thereby relieving you all all these errors.

According to apt-get gxine is still not there even though I think I added Backports correctly to sources.list:

Code:
deb http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free
deb-src http://mirrors.kernel.org/debian/ testing main contrib non-free
deb ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ testing main
deb http://www.backports.org/debian stable all
deb-src http://www.backports.org/debian stable all
That's right, right? (The forth one on the list was for Win32 codecs)

looks like you need the glib 2.0 or above packages, here are the dependencies for gxine. Give it a look.
