Unhappy "signal_connect" via package "Gtk2::Window"


Hi all,

I want one day install pgAdmin but this require wxwidgets but this require gtk but this require glib....

In order to get pgadmin i install and install some source i have a "few" problems "like normal" and now i haven't sounds can't open rpmdrake and other perhaps undetectable things.

Problem in here is that when i run rpmdrake this result:

Can't locate object method "signal_connect" via package "Gtk2::Window" at /usr/lib/libDrakX/mygtk2.pm line 772.

if someone can help me i'll be thanks in advance.

Did you read the sticky "Installing .rpm and .tar.gz"?
Have you got a fast internet connection?
if yes use easyurpmi to set your sources

It sounds like you have reached dependency hell
and installed manually packages that broke your system

maybe a solution is to use rpm -i on the drakconf rpm files
on your installation cd, and hope that it takes all the
dependencies that would overwrite whatever you installed
with pgAdmin

Anyhow, I am sorry I do not have any good suggestion,
you will need to rely on further contribution than mine
You may want to explain in further details what steps /where from
you installed pgAdmin

Well, maybe heavy-handed, but fast and efficient.
This was my next suggestion.
Glad you resolved your issue. It is part of that learning curve.
Good luck with linux

BTW, I do not think you need to PGP your messages, even if it is cool.
I imagine if you can post your are logged in, that should be enough

Another one hits the dependency hell

Well, I did the same stupid thing!

I tried to compile the latest Gaim, which required updates to gtk2 and glib, and pango, and a few others that gtk/glib requires, so I did rpm -e --nodeps to gtk,glib,etc, and installed those from source.

Well, I have the latest gaim running just fine, but Mandriva 2006 tools like drakconf.real, drakclock, or anything else, no longer work.

So I 'undid' my changes, by re-installing GTK/GLIB from RPM's, and I even went and did the whole "kde" RPM set, but I still get the same errors!, namely:
Can't locate object method "signal_connect" via package "Gtk2::Window" at /usr/sbin/drakconf.real line 98

Does anyone know which package(s) are responsible for this so I can restore them to the Mandriva level?

Many thanks!

I just encountered the same problem.

I had installed various updated libraries, including libglib, libgtk, libpango etc. in /usr/local/lib and these are being used instead of the default ones.

A simple workaround was to temporarily set the environment variable LD_LIBRARY_PATH to /usr/lib before calling drakconf, diskdrak etc.:

setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /usr/lib
drakconf

This worked for me!
