    Glib???


    I am trying to install thenewest version of xmms and when I do ./configure it goes through a bunch of stuff and at the bottom it says:

    configure: error: *** GLIB >= 1.2.2 not installed - please install first ***

    now I went and downloaded what I think is a version of glib from www.gtk.org and when I try to install that I did ./configure and that went through no problem I think, but when I tried to run : make. It goes through a bunch of stuff and gives me an error at the end as follows:

    glib-2.6.0]$ make

    It looks like make is throwing an error at the name of your directory "My Downloads" because of the space. Try renaming the directory "My_Downloads" or something like that, and try again.
