    1st Mepis Post:) \ Pango pkg-config issues...

    Wow, I'm the first to post in the Mepis Threads! Ok here's my problem, when I try to configure pango-1.4.0 I get this error:

    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.4.0...
    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.10.0, but GLIB (2.8.5)
    *** 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/ 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
    configure: error:
    *** Glib 2.4.0 or better is required. The latest version of
    *** Glib is always available from
    I've tried to install glib-2.0, 2.4.0, 2.8.5, and 2.10.0 I still get this error ( I guess because of pkg-config which I don't know how to fix?) This is what I have in pkg-config now:

    root@1[pango-1.4.0]# pkg-config --list-all
    gmodule-export-2.0    GModule - Dynamic module loader for GLib
    renderproto           RenderProto - Render extension headers

    I'm having pretty much the same issue trying to compile Pango under MacOS X 10.4

    Anymore insight from your side?
