Streamripper 1.64 GLIB >= 2.16.0

    In Ubuntu 9.10 (2.6.31-14-generic)  ./configure in streamripper  1.64.6 fails complaining: "error: Glib 2.16 or greater required"

    According to Ubuntu's synaptic, I have  libglib2.0-0 is installed which is greater than 2.16.

    Is there way to fix this error so that  "configure" runs correctly?

    Actually that is version 2.0, so that is before 2.16.  Look for the version 2.16 or greater for Ubuntu 9.10.

    Sorry. Confusion on my part.   The Ubuntu Package is libglib2.0-0  but the version I have installed on the PC is   2.22.1-2.   So I'm still puzzled as why ./configure is urging  Glib greater than 2.16 when I have 2.22.1-2 which satisfies the condition.

    Try doing a reinstall of the package.

    More Noob stumbles:  Turns out I didn't have the development  files for the GLib library installed after all.   After I installed  libglib2.0-dev using Ubuntu's 9.10  Synaptic,  "./configure",  "make"  and "sudo make install" all ran without error.  "streamripper -v" nows shows version 1.64.6 . My error was that  I saw  libglib2.0-0 listed in Synaptic  as installed then assumed that configure should be happy with it. Alas, configure was never happy!     I really should know better.  (:-{   Thanks for your help.
