    Is it possible to install XMMS with GLib-2?


    When I try to configure XMMS, I get the error:

    checking for glib-config... no
    checking for GLIB - version >= 1.2.2... no
    *** The glib-config script installed by GLIB could not be found
    *** If GLIB was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
    *** your path, or set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to the
    *** full path to glib-config.
    configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

    This is because GLib 2 uses pkgconfig insteadd of glib-config. Is there any way to get XMMS to use pkgconfig instead of glib-config? I would install Glib-1.2.2, but it gives me an error because it can't install over Glib 2.

    Thanks

    I tried that, but I guess I'll try it again since I didn't reall know what to change.

    Is this the part that I should edit?
    Code:
      if test x$glib_config_exec_prefix != x ; then
         glib_config_args="$glib_config_args --exec-prefix=$glib_config_exec_prefix"
         if test x${GLIB_CONFIG+set} != xset ; then
            GLIB_CONFIG=$glib_config_exec_prefix/bin/glib-config
         fi
      fi
      if test x$glib_config_prefix != x ; then
         glib_config_args="$glib_config_args --prefix=$glib_config_prefix"
         if test x${GLIB_CONFIG+set} != xset ; then
            GLIB_CONFIG=$glib_config_prefix/bin/glib-config
    What exactly should I change?

    Beep Media Player is a gtk2/glib2 port of xmms. But gtk1/glib1 and gtk2/glib2 can exist together on a system so installing gtk1.x/glib1.x could also be an option.

    Wow, it's funny that you suggested BMP because I just installed it and was going to post this to say that I solved my problem. It seems to be just as good as XMMS, and it supports Winamp skins, so I'll stick with it.

    I messed up with gtk and glib in my post, so I corrected that. Glad my advice appeared to be a good solution for you, even it was too late
