Im’ new to linux and not 100% if what I’m doing is correct. I’m attempting to compile gnubg on what I believe is a Fedora core 4 system. I’ve downloaded the 0.13 source files from ftp://alpha.gnu.org/gnu/gnubg.

Wrong start.... The tarball at alpha.gnu is antique.

You should rather do:
cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/gnubg co gnubg

Now then, what I need is to be able to compile gnubg with only the CLI. I **think** gnubg can be compiled so that it can only use the commandline. To do that, I’ve done is ran the following command after I unzipped everything.

configure --without-gtk --without-gtk2 --without-x

Yes, I believe this should do. But I think you need some automake magic first, at least if you check out from cvs.

if this would then complete, and not hang on the following error, I think we’d be gold. But as it is, I get an error =/

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0... no

Yes, this is true. GNU Backgammon requires glib to compile, even if you're not compiling with the GUI.

At this point I tried installing multiple versions of of glib that were anywhere from 2.10 – 2.13, but everytime, the configure refused to acknowledge that it had been installed.

Any modern Linux distribution has glib runtime libs installed. Maybe there is a development rpm you're missing?
