    installing DCTC error


    checking for glib-2.0 gthread-2.0... Package glib-2.0 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
    Perhaps you should add the directory containing `glib-2.0.pc'
    to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
    No package 'glib-2.0' found

    configure: error: Library requirements (glib-2.0 gthread-2.0) not met; consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if your libraries are in a nonstandard prefix so pkg-config can find them.

    while no trying to labour the point, as Ol Man is correct, if you come across this problem (dependencies) you could try attacking it like this :-

    1- Make a note of the dependency
    2- Go to http://rpmfind.net
    3- enter the dependency in their search field
    4- It will, hopefully, show you what rpm has that dependency in it
    5- Download and install the appropriate rpm

    have fun

    TweakerFD,
    there is no need to feel stupid. We all have to learn some time. 'Stupid' would have been to give up or plough on regardless.

    have fun
