chmod 777 tmp
chmod 775 bin
chmod 775 lib
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=$HOME/lib/pkgconfig
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$HOME/lib:/usr/local/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
wget ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/glib/2.13/glib-2.13.6.tar.gz
tar -xvzf glib-2.13.6.tar.gz
rm glib-2.13.6.tar.gz
cd glib-2.13.6
./configure –prefix=$HOME
make
make install
cd ..
rm -rf glib-2.13.6
wget http://irssi.org/files/irssi-0.8.11.tar.gz

rm irssi-0.8.11.tar.gz
cd irssi-0.8.11
