Uninstalling glib 2.6.0

Hi there

When trying to ./configure pygtk-2.5.4 i get this message.....

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.6.0, but GLIB 2.6.2
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib

I installed GLIB 2.6.0 in a similar fashion. Im new to linux and do not know how to uninstall programs yet. Can someone tell me how to unstall GLIB 2.6.0?

Thank you kindly

did you keep the source directory around for glib-2.6.0? when you compile, you should be creating packages to install for easier upgrade/removal ( and rpm will know the package exist on your system). If you didn't keep the source directory, go redownload it, configure it exactly the same as you did before, and run "make uninstall" - you will probably have to reinstall 2.6.2 again.

sounds like you are doing exactly what I was doing yesterday. I just went through the same exercise to install streamtuner.

When I installed pygtk, I did a
 ./configure --disable-glibtest --disable-gtktest
and everything worked.
