    I've looked all over, but I can seem to figure out what to do. If anyone could tell me what the problem is, I would be eternally grateful.
    btw-i included the entire output b/c i'm not sure whats relevant.

    I believe the problem could be something to do with the fact that chbg requires either iimlib1, imlib2, or gdk-pixbuf, and none of their config files are found. I don't know where the files are or how to target them.

    Is gdk-pixbuf installed? It looks as if it's choking when trying to use one of the headers or libraries provided by gdk-pixbuf. Maybe try re-installing it and see if that helps any..?

    actually i just checked, via rpm, and chbg is already installed, along with gdk-pixbuf. i guess gdk-pixbuf must be in a weird location. anyway, since i don't need to figure out how to install this, i guess thats all. thanks for the advice though.

    If there's a devel RPM for gdk-pixbuf, make sure you install that too.

    Good to hear that you have it working!

    Just a note: I've found that sometimes things get weird with RPM (and even apt-based) distros as far as where stuff is when installing from source. If I decide to mess with any such thing again, I'll be sure to post some tips.
