I'm trying out the book "Developing Linux Applications with GTK+
and GDK". I'm first trying to install the software, following the
exact instructions from the book. I downloaded versions 1.2.3 from
www.gtk.org to my RedHat Linux 5.2
Ok, I first install GLIB, I run /sbin/ldconfig (which I have no
idea what it means -- the book says "you may need to run /sbin...
to configure the libraries"), I reboot, and then, when trying to
install GTK+, it tells me that it doesn't find GLIB, that GLIB 1.2.3
or higher is required.
After some struggle, I realized that I had to manually set the path
to /usr/local/bin (I have no idea why the install program doesn't
do it). Anyway, now it gives e a strange message, telling me
that the test program compiled but did not run, that this usually
means that the libraries are not properly configures. It mentions
something about an environment variable LIB_???_PATH. I tried
setting manually that variable to point to /usr/local/lib, but
Anyone can figure out what I'm doing wrong? Or what am I missing?
I appreciate any help.
Thanks, and have a nice day,
