    GTK+:GLIB version mismatch during installation ATK


    Hi!

    I'm currently installing GTK+ under Fedora Core 13. Before you install GTK+ you have to install GLIB, Pango and ATK.

    When installing ATK it goes wrong. After giving the "./configure" I get following error:

    checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
    *** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.25.8, but GLIB (2.24.1)
    *** 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/ld.so.conf. 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
    no
    configure: error:
    *** GLIB 2.0.0 or better is required. The latest version of
    *** GLIB is always available from (***********). If GLIB is installed
    *** but not in the same location as pkg-config add the location of the file
    *** glib-2.0.pc to the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH.


    Apparently there is an old version of GLIB on my system bugging my installation process.
    Does anybody know how to get rid of this old version?

    Thanks already!

    Hi.

    For the Fedora that I use:
    Code:
    OS, ker|rel, machine: Linux, 2.6.33.5-112.fc13.i686, i686
    Distribution        : Fedora release 13 (Goddard)
    There is a gtk+ available in the repository:
    Code:
    % yum info gtk+
    Loaded plugins: presto, refresh-packagekit
    Available Packages
    Name       : gtk+
    Arch       : i686
    Epoch      : 1
    Version    : 1.2.10

    Description: The gtk+ package contains the GIMP ToolKit (GTK+), a library for

    and the dependencies are:

       provider: glibc.i686 2.12-1
       provider: glibc.i686 2.12-3
    Your system and mine may differ, but I think most folks would install from the repository rather than compile, etc. See man yum for details.

    The yum commands above can be run by any user, but installs need to be run by root.

    Best wishes ... cheers, drl

    Hi,

    It did work out installing GTK+ with yum.

    Thanks for the hint.
