    Problem installing Glib 2.6.2


    I need a newer version of glib than is installed on my OS. I DLed glib-2.6.2.

    I did:

    Code:
    ./configure
    make
    make install
    Everything went fine. No errors. Yet when I try to install anything that needs the newer version of glib, it says it's not installed. I do a:

    Code:
    rpm -qa | grep glib
    And it comes back with:

    Code:
    glib2-2.4.8-1.fc3
    glibc-headers-2.3.4-2.fc3
    dbus-glib-0.22-10.FC3.2
    glib2-devel-2.4.8-1.fc3
    glibc-devel-2.3.4-2.fc3
    glib-1.2.10-15
    glibc-kernheaders-2.4-9.1.87
    glibc-common-2.3.4-2.fc3
    glib2-2.4.8-1.fc3
    dbus-glib-0.22-10.FC3.2
    glib-1.2.10-15
    glib-devel-1.2.10-15
    glibc-2.3.4-2.fc3
    glibc-2.3.4-2.fc3
    does anyone know whats going on here? How do I get this installed correctly?

    Thanks.

    You might be able to coax your source-installed version of glib into the rpm database with a:
    Code:
    rpm --rebuilddb
    , but don't bet the farm on it.
