Are you using a rpm-based distribution? Like redhat, suse, caldera, or turbo?
If so, you could download binary rpm replacements for each one. When I first
wanted to do this, the rpm upgrade path for glib/gtk+ seemed very confusing.
You could also manually install the libraries. I have installed newer versions of
the drivers I previously installed via tarball archive "over top". I don't know if
this is the factory approved way of doing things; but its what I did. Now I use
debian, and this stuff kinda takes care of itself.
I would definitely check out a mailing list or two or newsgroup specific to your
distribution and see if redhat or whatever has released a newer version you could
just rpm upgrade to.
