Postby WAQAS AZIZ » Thu Apr 14, 2005 9:55 am

i have installed xine 1.0.0 but when i try to install its gui and try to configure it it says that i dont have xine 1.0.0 but ihave installed 1.0.0 the message is
checking for size_t... (cached) yes
checking for xine-config... /usr/local/bin/xine-config
checking for XINE-LIB version >= 1.0.0... no
*** Could not run XINE test program, checking why...
*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
*** that the run-time linker is not finding XINE or finding the wrong
*** version of XINE. If it is not finding XINE, you'll need to set your
*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ to point
*** to the installed location Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
*** is required on your system
*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH
configure: error: *** You should install xine-lib first ***

now if i want to uninstall xine how can i do it
