I downloaded and installed a few updates from slackware.com, including gtk+2-2.8.20-i486-1.tgz, pango-1.12.4-i486-1.tgz, libglade-2.5.1-i486-1.tgz, and cairo-1.0.4-i486-1.tgz. I also found python gtk+ bindings in .rpm and installed those using rpm2tgz. Now when I try to start gvim I get an error:
gvim: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_object_compat_control
I also installed a few other updates, including cairo, libglade, pango and python-gtk bindings.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Maybe that symbol was actually supposed to be g_object_compact_control and someone just had a typo =P
