[Slackbuilds-users] Upgrading glib2 on 14.1

   Gnucash has been upgraded to 2.6.17. Trying to build that on this 14.1
host I'm told that I need gtk+3 > the installed 3.8.2. When I try to build
gtk+-3.18.9 it wants me to upgrade a half-dozen libraries. One of which is
glib-2.0 >=2.45.8 and I installed is 2.36.4.

   I find glib2 in SBo (other than Ruby-glib2), but glib2-2.46.2 is in the
14.2 library patches at osuosl.org. I've upgraded other packages here with
versions from 14.2I and assume that I can build this from source here and
upgrade the current glib2. Am I assume correct in this assumption?

   Measure twice; cut once. I want to be sure I won't break anything.
