    Cannot 'make'. Missing GLIB 1.2.2

    I'm trying to install XMMS-1.2.1 on Mandrake 10. During
    I receive the following errors:

    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 ***
    I tried to install the glibc-2.3.3-10mdk.i586.rpm from the Mandrake CD, but it says it is already installed. Am I trying to install the wrong thing or is GLIB 1.2.2 missing?

    First off: glibc != glib.
    GLibc is the GNU C Library, while GLib is the library used with GTK+.
    Second, you most likely have GTK+-2.x instead of GTK+-1.x, as GTK/Glib/etc-1.x use their own configuration tools for dependencies, while 2.x use pkg-config.
