How do you know you have 1.8.2 ?  As a first step you'll want to
find out where 1.8.2 is installed and uninstalled the 1.7.2 packages
(and its devel package).

Thank you for your reply, Jody.

I managed to install 1.2.1 in the end. I'm reporting what i did in case anyone running slackware 9.0 should encounter my problems.

The needed libraries were installed, in fact i installed them myself, but the configure script wasn't able to see them, because it calls the pkg-config function to check their presence, and it seems that pkg-config can't see libraries installed out of /usr/lib.
The default install dir for libgsf-1 is /usr/local/lib for slack...

So what i did was to issue the commands:

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/usr/local/lib


so that the right dir was added to pkg-config's path.

(Also rebooted, dunno if it was necessary)

Then i also uninstalled the 1.1.16 version and the old libraries using pkgtool, and succesfully run the installation scripts.

Seems this is a common problem with slack, have a look here also:*slackware*%26lr%3Dlang_en%26num%3D100%26hl%3Den
