Multiple glib files found - how to fix?

*** ‘pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0’ returned 2.2.0, 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

i’ve edited the path in /etc/ to include /usr/local/lib , and run ldconfig afterwards. however, i still cannot find where the two libraries are. i have been adding all of these things to my mandrake 9.0 install in the hopes of getting gaim .61 to run.


right now, im stuck at the libraries part. i’m a little new with linux, so any help is appreciated, as its so easy to reinstall if i screw up.

so after all that, does anyone know or have any idea where the two separate libraries are stored at? i would think that they are in the same directory, but i havent cornered them yet.

A very fast way to search on a Linux filesystem is done by using the internal database. Although this database needs to be updated once every while, and the updating can last a couple minutes, it really provides quick results…

in a console, do this:

  1. upgradedb (and wait for some time)
  2. locate <filename> (or part of the filename

If everything turns out well, you’ll get a list of results. If the list is too long to read, use locate <var> |more

Good luck :slight_smile:

tried that one :smiley: - but it wasnt finding two files in the same place, or anything else that seemed helpful. im trying it again now…


got this back for returns that seemed pertinent.


also found this, on closer inspection. odd, though, that it said glib 2.2 and 2.0.6 were detected…ill post anything i figure out / break tomorrow night - thanks for making me do locate again :smiley:
