Finally got RH 6.0 installed (thanks to help form folks on this site :-) and now I'm trying to add the latest gimp. It needs the latest gtk which needs the latest glib... The versions I want to intall are the latest stable (gimp 1.0.4, gtk+ 1.2.7, glib 1.2.7).
Currently the system appears to have gtk 1.2.1 and glib 1.2.1.
The part of having trouble with is how to understand how to prepare for these upgrades. It looked like glib worked fine through configure, make and make install, but when I try to go to the next step, gtk, it complains that it needs glib 1.2.7.
I'm assuming I need to clean out all previous versions before going through these steps? When I search for this stuff it looks like there's quite a bit and I don't want to remove anything I don't understand to be removing, etc. Are there methods to do clean-up before an upgrade? I would really like to know general methods as well as it will be good to know for future stuff.
Any tips on this would be greatly appreciated!
