Hi, if they're not already installed you need to install the glib libraries from the l/ directory of the slackware cdrom.
glib-1.2.10-i386-2.tgz and glib2-2.2.3-i486-1.tgz (Slack 9.1).
The glib2 package contains the gobject library where the g_type_class_add_private function is defined.

Alright, if you're sure you've got the gtk and glib packages installed then maybe pango is the causing the problem.
Try,
Code:
ls /usr/lib/*pango*
if you don't see any output form this command then you need to install the pango package, pango-1.2.5-i486-1.tgz, which is also in the l/
directory of the first slackware CD.

Ok, where is gnome installed? Is it in /opt/gnome or somewhere else? Possibly the linker isn't finding the libraries.

Maybe your libgtk-x11-2.0 is too recent for your Gnome installation so you have to upgrade Gnome as well (gnome 2.6)

So is there a subdirectory in the gnome directory called /lib where all the shared libraries are stored?
If so you may need to add that directory to the /etc/ld.so.conf file so the linker can find them.
Code:
 cat /etc/ld.so.conf
/usr/local/lib
/usr/X11R6/lib
/usr/i486-slackware-linux/lib
/usr/lib
That is what the file looks like on my system, you would have to add the line,
Code:
/usr/local/gnome/lib
if that's where the gnome libraries are installed, then run,
Code:
/sbin/ldconfig

Hi. Ok if you've installed all the packages form the slackware cdrom then the versions of the libraries shouldn't be causing any problems.
It still looks as if you're either missing a library somewhere, or the linker can't find it.
Could you please post the output of:
Code:
grep -ir g_type_class_add_private /usr/lib

After looking into this further I believe keefaz was on the right track.
I assumed you had just installed gtk2 from the package on the first slackware 9.1 cd ( gtk+2-2.2.4-i486-1.tgz ).
Please also post the output from,
Code:
ls -l /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0
so we can see what version of libgtk this symlink actually points to, and
Code:
ls /usr/lib/*gtk*
so we can see all the gtk libs in /usr/lib, just to make sure you don't have multiple versions of libgtk+-2.x installed.
Thanks.
