relocation error

/usr/lib/transgaming_point2play/bin/python: relocation error: /usr/lib/ undefined symbol: g_type_class_add_private
Does anyone have any idea what that actually means?

P2P was a working install and then I upgrade gtk and about a dozen other libraries like gnome-python and Porbit. Then it all went wrong. The underlying Cedega still works fine, it's just P2P.

I've managed to rm all the affected packages and reinstall original versions, ldconfig'd till I'm blue in the face but this damn error keeps cropping up.

Other python apps like gramps and grapevine run fine.

I've also noticed the Firefox keeps crashing when trying to display some (most) web pages - upgrade to vs 1 has no effect.

gkellm uses /usr/lib/ and that runs fine ( i know 'cos I renamed it, got other errors with P2P and grellm disappeared).

There is only one instant of libpangoft2 as follows,

mark@pisces:/usr/lib$ ls -la | grep libpangoft2
-rw-r--r--    1 root root       829 2004-03-17 03:39
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root        26 2004-11-12 20:42 ->*                            
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root root        26 2004-11-13 01:14 ->*
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root root    151444 2004-03-17 03:40*

Looks like you're right.

I've just loaded up the 'small' version of P2P and it runs without error.
P2P is only issued as a pre-compiled package with the large version coming with all dependencies and the small version relying on what is already installed.

Thanks for that, i feel wiser `<:-)
