    xmms and glib

    Hi all,

    having a huge problem trying to install XMMS on fedora core 3.
    Basically when i go to ./configure i get told that i don't have glib-2.1.1.

    With this i went and downloaded glib 2.3.1 and did ./configure then install then make and it all seemed fine.

    I went to ./configure xmms again and i got the same output, i'm totally confused as to why this is happening, i noticed the output says it cannot find glib-Config script installed by glib. I'm confused! Should my install of GLIB have made this file?!?!

    I've seen this problem crop up on a few forums but i can't find an answer. Am i doing something wrong when installing glib? i can find a file called glibconfig.h in my /usr/local/lib/glib-2.0/include and theres also a load of files that sound like config in the directory /home/user /glib-2.3.1 where i made the install!

    I've tried loads of stuff including altering the $PATH variable to look in these directories, moving files around, trying other multimedia (MP3 is what i want) players.

    Please help if you can,

    look in you glib sources directory and do
    find ./ -name "glib-config" -print
    if this doesn't work, try replacing glib with glibc or libc. If it finds a file, should not have an extension, copy it to /usr/local/bin. Try running the configure script for xmms again.

    Download and install glib 2.1.1 like it said. Glib dependencies can be hell, best to use the specific version it says it needs to avoid mass confusion.
