I have the GLIB 2 or something like that I found it in /opt/gnome/include/glib. Thanks in advance to all help. I think I'm going to start a website about help with Linux so people like me don't go insane trying to figure it out. Smilie

Have you tried
# export GLIB_CONFIG="/full/path/to/glib-config"
# ./configure

Ok, I'm understanding Linux a little bit but I searched my files and folders and found nothing named GLIB_CONFIG. I just have a glib-2.0 folder. Thanks for taking the time to help zazzybob.

You need to search for "glib-config". Try something like
find / -name "glib-config" -print
as root. This will print the full path to the file.

Then, set the GLIB_CONFIG environment variable to contain this path, as shown with my command in the above post.

Ok, I found a glibconfig.h file in file:/opt/gnome/lib/glib-2.0/include is this what I'm looking for or is it just glib-config. Also I can't seem to login to root anymore it just keeps bringing up the Yast screen when I login to root...dumb linux *scratchs head*

I went into the root console from my user session and did a search and this is what is did:
linux:~ # find / -name "glib-config" -print
find: /media/cdrecorder: No medium found
find: /media/floppy: No medium found
linux:~ #

From what I can find it should be located in /usr/local/bin/glib-config but my /usr/local/bin/ folder is completely empty. I can go into YaST though and it shows all glib packages are installed. Maybe SuSE 9.2 Pro is deciding to hide everything Smilie Smilie

Hmm. I've heard of the logging in as root and getting YaST problem before. You can still do a "su" to root via a console though, as you have.

It might be worth firing up YaST anyway and re-installing the glib* packages (including any dev or devel packages) and/or lib*glib* packages.

You might also want to try searching for a XTheater RPM for SUSE - this will make the installation painless via rpm.

On my SuSE 8.2 machine, the full path to glib-config is
/usr/bin/glib-config, so do an ls -l /usr/bin/glib-config - if it's there, then export GLIB_CONFIG set to this path.

i.e. export GLIB_CONFIG=/usr/bin/glib-config
then re-run ./configure

You can do "glib-config --version" to see which version you're running.

If a "which glib-config" doesn't find the glib-config script then either it is not in your PATH or all of glib isn't installed.

In SUSE 8.2, an "rpm -qvf /usr/bin/glib-config" shows that it is contained within glib-devel-1.2.10-372.rpm (although your version should be newer).

A few things to try!

Ok, I'm about ready to strangle SuSE. I installed every single package off of all 5 cds and still nothing. In KDE when you goto the menu and tell it to "Find Files" in the "Named:" field how do you tell it to search for file names that just start with glib? Because when I do a search for glib it only pulls up the exact name of the file I entered. I typed glib-config --version and this is what I got...

linux:~ # glib-config --version
-bash: glib-config: command not found
linux:~ #

How in the world can it be installed but not be found...
