I need to upgrade to glib 2.8. However I don't know how to do this? I downloaded glib2.8.tar.gz, but I cannot uninstall glib2.0 because of dependancies. What do I do to do a simple upgrade? I heard about yum package manager, however I don't know the commands.

I tried this:

./configure
make
make install

It installed it fine, I think, however upon installing, glib2.8 is not being recognized because glib2.0 is still installed. What now?

If you have yum install (and run an rpm based system) then use :

yum update glib

That should update glib to the most current version (available via yum) and resolve any dependencies.

It says, no packages available for update, no actions to take. Do I need a glib2.8.rpm in order for this to work? What directory should I put the rpm in?

Where does it install glib? usr/share?

How can I check if the update happened?
