Eroaster built from source error


Hi All,
I just downloaded eroaster and tried to install from source. Everything worked fine, I received no errors when compiling or making the install, but when I was done and typed eroaster to launch the program, I got this---

(eroaster:10520): Gtk-WARNING **: /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/2.0.0/engines/libmetal.so: undefined symbol: gtk_toggle_button_get_type
26.10.2002 08:51:09.270 ERROR main [Main] cannot import name GtkVBox

Anyone have a clue what this error is?

I'm running RH 8.0 on a 700MHz Athlon with 512 MG of memory. Thanks in advance!

you didn't get compilation errors as it is not compiled, it's written in python, which is a script langauge, not a programming language. eroaster doesn't use gtk2, make sure you have gtk1.2 installed and try again, it is presumably picking up the wrong library paths somehow.

I don't have GTK1.2 installed, will this cause problems since I have GTK2?

RH8 dropped support for the python-gtk bindings for gtk1.2. ERoaster uses this bindings, therefore it doesn't work. The only way to get it to work is to port eroaster to pygtk2 which is some work and probably too early, because not all distributions include pygtk2 yet. For more information on that problem, please read this thread: https://sourceforge.net/tracker/inde...95&atid=362895
and the note on the homepage: http://eclipt.uni-klu.ac.at/modules....=article&sid=9

Wow, what a disappointment!

Thanks for the help. I actually dug a little deeper and found that I did have GTK1.2 so I was really confused. I guess we'll have to wait.

Thanks!

That depends. If you're looking to burn mp3 or files or whatever, try my script that works on RH.

looking at that script there are a reasonable amount of changes i'd instantly make. firstly write it in perl, so as to make it so much easier to expand. also why should a user have to select the scsi channel? this should really be autodetected, and given a more limited choice if necessary. There's a load of cleanup code i'd add too, like removing the unwanted wav files. (or maybe you should speed things up by not requiring an iso file to be made in the first place. it's possible to decode the mp3 files directly on the burning cd after all.) anyway, it's a nifty little script by the look of it so far.

acid_kewpie, thanks. Some of your suggestions are going to my to-do list. It's very interesting that from the begining, I just wanted to write a simple script that would copy iso. It's evolving. As for Perl, I don't know anything about it. When you say iso, do you mean the script duplicates an iso to copy? It was gone. If you mean converting mp3 to iso, it doesn't. Try it. Before it burns, exit. Take a look at your folder. The making of iso for others like copying cd is done for improved performance. Plus, that's what some doc says: mkisofs then cdrecord.

palm1, let me know how it goes. PM me here.
