 Thank you very much for your kind advice. 
 Actually I have another related question. I installed the
latest version of glib-2.0, etc. from tarball in order to
build some simulation library(libswarm). Latest version of
glib locates at /usr/local/lib. Since then Gnome becomes
to freeze, I think.
 I don't know how to resolve such a problem: I want use
some application or library which requires the latest
version of fundamental library(like glib). On the other
hand, older version of that library which was installed
from package still remains at /usr/lib. That is, there
exists two different version of the same library on the
system. How can I use safely latest version at
/usr/local/lib for some app/lib without bothering older
version at /usr/lib to work for other existing packages?
 I've been stucked at this problem for a few years. Could
you give me any enlightenment?
 I'm sorry for my quite long question. Thanks in advance.
