Please could someone help me? I have been learning Linux for only a few weeks, and have hit a major problem trying to install the precursors for GTK+ 2.8.15 yesterday. I needed this to read a .CHM file to help with another application I've succesfully installed on RH9 (SAP Netweaver), but I've fell to earth with a thud
The symptoms are explained almost exactly in Bugzilla 111821. Specifically, I get
(xconf. Py:5568): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type ‘PangoXftFontMap’ is smaller than the parent type’s ‘PangoFontMap’ class size.
(xconf. Py:5568): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: g_object_new: assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed.
/usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/redhat-config-xfree86: line 2: 5568 Segmentation fault
python 2.2 /usr/share/redhat-config-xfree86/xconf.py $@
I first installed the latest releases of pkg-config, then GLIB, then Cairo then Pango and then ATK. When I tried to install GTK+ it gave me the following error
configure: error: Package requirements (glib-2.0 >= 2.8.5 atk >= 1.0.1 pango >= 1.9.0 cairo >= 0.9.2) were not met.
Consider adjusting the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed software in a non-standard prefix.
Alternatively you may set the BASE_DEPENDENCIES_CFLAGS and BASE_DEPENDENCIES_LIBS environment variables
to avoid the need to call pkg-config. See the pkg-config man page for more details.
It was after I installed again using ./configure –profile /usr that things stopped working.
Bugzilla comment from Jakub Jelinekon said to see duplicates in /etc/ld.so.cache. Specifically
Libnss_wins.so , libnss_windbind.so, libattr.so and libacl.so both exist in /usr/lib/ and /lib/
libGLU.so and libGL.so exists in /usr/lib/ and /usr/X11R6/lib/.
When I edit /etc/ld.so.conf, I see only four lines:
If I change /usr/X11R6/lib to /usr/lib and compile with ldconfig, xfs will not start with message ( and gnome still wont load):
xfs: error while loading shard libraries libXfont.so.1: cannot open shared object file. No such file or directory
Is make clean an option now ? Any help would be so appreciated.
