ok, so I don't actually know why, but I do *NOT* have that lgp2.so2 file anywhere on my system... this is WACKED...

I'm now going to reboot and try to install the newest version of libart from the site - www.levien.com (2.3.3 or something, apparently a stable version on the bottom)

Uh, is that really the site you are going to use?

I'd suggest you use the links that I provided above, it's at least going to deter those problems that occurs from not using things built for your system

Cool

I already had the other tow installed so i figured that there was a problem ro something with the install process... like why the hell doesn't it make such a needed file, if without the file startx craps out? Stupid...

Anyways, now, for some mightily unexplained God-reason, I have found the file. I copied it into my /usr/lib dir and i'm in gnome now...

So through this whole expereince i still don't get what happend, why the hell didn't i have the file and what causes this to happen?

Is my solution a long-term solution, or will i be fighting with stupid things like that yet to come because of it?

I don't know, but I do know that in Slackware, things like that don't happen

Actually, to be honest, if you are going to vear at all away from Redhat, I suggest you look at Gentoo or Debian, not Slackware, simply because of your setup and needs external to your OS (your sound setup and things). You'll want something more 'main stream' and with a package setup that will aide you with those audio apps.

And yeah, it should be long term, sometimes during an install, something gets lost, and if you are lucky, you fix it quickly and never see it again.

Another question:

when I got back into gnome, redhat network yells at me to install the new 20-9 version of my athlon kernel and source, seeing how i thought this would be a good idea, i did.

Now nothing works, i had to reinstall nvidia drivers, my sound is all screwed up

whta's the point of UPGRADING if all you're really doing is COMPLETELY #*$(ING OVER YOUR SYSTEM?

I mean damn... sounds little stupid to me...

ANways, I have the option of running the 20-8, so i do, and guess what? I STILL have to reinstall my nvidia driver so X works properly, except now i have a APM daemon startup error (it fails) so like i can't get any email... i mean shit...

so frustrating i feel like bashing my monitor with my keyboard..

and what happens when i install ximian desktop 2, am i going to have to reinstall that too so it works with 20-9?

i swear i'm gonna snap soon...

Kernel updates shouldn't be taken lightly. If you choose to do them, expect most of the drivers to not function properly.

In the future, now you know

Upgrading single packages on the other hand would be fine. That's normal. The only time I do a kernel update/recompile is when I have a piece of hardware not functioning correctly or how I'd like it to. Other than that, unless there is a feature I am dying to use, there is no need.

Cool
