I'm running Mandrake 9.1 now
When I try to install several applications (for example Gaim) it complains that I'm running a version of glib that's to old. But as far as I know I'm running glib-2.2.0, and the installer complains about version >= 1.3. (actually, Gaim complains about Aspell, but it's installed. If I try to (re)install, Aspell complains about an old glibversion, and glib complains..... and so on... )
I heard that Mandrake puts the libraries in different places. I tried to find the lib-directories, put them in /etc/ld.so.conf, but that didn't help. I reinstalled glibc2.2.0, but that didn't work neither. After install I can find some files from the package, but not all.
Is anyone familiar with this problem, and can help me to solve this ? I really love Mandrake, but if it's differentiated from a standard linuxversion with commercial things in mind, I better get back to ms :-)
