Re: [Gimp-user] CentOS packanges for 2.8?

You need to build things in the selected build directory, babl, gegl
and gimp

If glib and gtk versions are too low, you need to build those and
their dependancies in the selected directory.

DO NOT BUILD IN /usr or /usr/local

Make sure that the console you are working is the console that you
have exported the paths as per the gimp users tutorial. That way,
looking for libraries ensures the first searched path is your build
directory, not /usr or /usr/local

Got it... I'm currently wallowing in dependency hell.  Each thing
needs another thing... so far I have downloaded the following: cairo,
pango, gdk-pixbuf, gtk+, atk, libffi and glib along with the previous
babl and gegl and now it's telling me I will need poppler and pixman
as well.  The rabbit hole goes deeper and deeper and the passages ever

I just want to make graphics... you know?  This stuff is making me
tired and my eyes dry.

That's why you should opt for a general usage distro. Fedora, SUSE,
Ubuntu, and probably the best IMHO, is Mint.

If you want to play with Centos and other boutique distros, be
prepared to do the hard yards.
