need help with libgio-2.0.so.0 g_thread_gettime error at vmware startup


Hi all,

topic pretty much states my problem!
When I try to start vmware server 2, I get this:
Code:
gtl@predator:~$ vmware
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmware: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgio-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_thread_gettime
gtl@predator:~$
Thoughts on how to solve this are most welcome!

Thanks!

EDIT: Ignore this post. I apparently failed to read the actual error message; instead I chose to home in on "libgio" and assume that *it* was missing.

libgio was introduced in glib2-2.17.x (the devel branch leading to 2.18.x). That means you'll either need to upgrade glib2 (DO NOT USE THE PACKAGE FROM THE -CURRENT TREE -- build it yourself if you go that route), upgrade fully to the -current tree (which is the development branch of Slackware), or wait for the next Slackware release.

Note that building glib2 on your own really isn't recommended, but it's certainly doable. Just note that you're on your own :-)

Hrm, this just might be a bug in glib-2.18.4. Based on some other reports I'm seeing via google, it appears that the g_thread_gettime() function is a call to g_thread_gettime_impl(), and then g_thread_gettime_impl() isn't defined.

I'm not *certain* about that diagnosis, but it might be worth pursuing a bug report with upstream glib. If you do, please CC me (rw at rlworkman.net) on the bug report.

Hi , I could fix it with reinstalling " gnome-desktop " the libgnome-desktop library that contains APIs
I had the same error today after removing the Gnome-Desktop Environment and i manually removed some gnome-base system apps .
gnome-desktop was one of them .

VMware 1.0.10 OpenSUSE11.1 KDE3.5
