    glib error when compiling


    i tried to install gstreamer from source and me an error saying that glib wasnt installed.

    prior to trying to install gstreamer i installed the latest version of glib.

    is there a way to do something to force the ./configure thing to seach somewhere else for glib?
    i dont know where glib installed itself to though.

    try installing glib through urpmi, that should fix the problem.

    ok, but how do you do it?

    would it be urpmi <http adress> install

    or something like that?

    as root, type into a terminal:

    Code:
    urpmi glib
    and it will download and install glib for you. if it cannot find a specific package called "glib", it will display packages which contain "glib" in it, then you choose which one to install using the urpmi command. e.g. urpmi glibc-1.4.xxx
