I want to install Gens emulator (genesys/megadrive) in knoppix linux in HD. Before (knoppix 3.3) I used to WINE it from windows partition, but Gens has a linux port.

I've downloaded and try to compile, but ./configure said that I need latest GTK+ and knoppix has older ones. What I have to do? Update GTK+? Could this destroy system?

Older Gens version doesn't use gtk, but sdl -> same problem

Probably you will tell me that I can use other emulator, but I like this one (can play, copy music and bmps to hd, ...)
