$ gimp Can't get gimp to launch
I am running fedora 7
Have not made any system changes since I last used gimp, only regular yum updates.
Gimp was running fine, but now when I try launch it I get this error.
$ gimp
gimp: error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib/ invalid ELF header
I tried uninstalling, rebooted and reinstalled but still get the same error.
Does anyone know what's up?

Try uninstalling/reinstalling gimp-libs (gimp-libs contains the file):

# rpm -e --nodeps gimp-libs
# yum install gimp-libs

It worked. And kept my separate config.
