    Uninstall glib 2.10.3???


    Okay, I'm trying to install rox as the file manager and use it alongside fluxbox. Anyways, here's my problem. I'm trying to install the dependancies for it and I keep getting this error with atk.

    Code:
    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.5.7...
    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.12.0, but GLIB (2.10.3)
    *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
    *** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
    *** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
    *** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
    *** required on your system.
    *** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    *** to point to the correct configuration files
    no
    checking for pkg-config... (cached) /usr/bin/pkg-config
    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.12.0, but GLIB (2.10.3)
    *** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best

    *** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
    *** to point to the correct configuration files
    no
    configure: error:
    *** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
    *** GLIB is always available from ftp://ftp.gtk.org/. If GLIB is installed
    *** but not in the same location as pkg-config add the location of the file
    *** glib-2.0.pc to the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.
    How do I remove the old glib? More importantly, why does it even care?

    Thanks.

    would you mind sharing how you did it?

    im barely starting with linux now, and my head is way up my ass, so its very dark

    edit:
    well i guess i saw some light....

    i changed the install path of the newest glib using
    Code:
    ./configure --prefix=/usr
    and it seemed to work...

    I just configured the old glib. Then uninstalled it.

    sudo make uninstall

    Apparently my head is further in the dark either that or RHEL4 is a bigger pain than FC5. I tried to install the latest glib using ./configure --prefix=/usr and it "appears" to work. However even after the install RHEL4 keeps saying that the old libraries are still around. I can unistall the new libraries NP. Uninstalling the OLD ones isn't so clean b/c RedHat loves to repackage. This smacks of a need to compile the kernel but I'm on shaky ground here and I don't want to F-up. I know I can start stripping things down using system-config-packages >groan< but I REALLY don't want to do that. Any idears out there?

    Can I ask why you're compiling glib on EL4 instead of installing the rpm?

    Googling

    Two years ago, I didn't know how much I didn't know. Now, I DO know how much I don't know. I'm in the same boat as the one who started this thread. Compiling (or trying to) gtk, and all it depends on, on Ubuntu. I have failed miserably to get anything to run that wasn't installed by SynapticPackageManager
