Hi everyone,

After I successfully upgraded KDE and some other things I am getting a little problem now.

I am trying to upgrade GIMP but this is what happens.
checking for pkg-config... /usr/local/bin/pkg-config
checking for GLIB - version >= 2.2.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.2.1, but GLIB (2.0.6)
*** 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: Test for GLIB failed. See the file 'INSTALL' for help.

Anyone in here got any idea where glib leaves or where and how I can remove the old version of it?

Many Thanks

I have tried:

r1co:/dsk/2/Linux/glib2 # rpm -qa | grep glib
r1co:/dsk/2/Linux/glib2 # ls -al

r1co:/dsk/2/Linux/glib2 # rpm --force --nodeps -Uvh glib2-2.2.1-18.i586.rpm

everything stopped working,

I had to back track and returned to the previeuws versions. :cry:

Any Idea??? :?:
