Hi,

We want to install the wireshark development kit, and we have successfully installed autoconf, automake and libtool. But when we tried to install the wireshark, it gave the dependency error on gpk, and gpk had a dependency on glib. We are getting the following error when we try to install glib. Python 2.75 is installed. Please let us know.

[[email protected] glib-2.36.4]# python --version
Python 2.7.5

This isn't the place to ask for help installing glib--there are many other places for that type of question.
