Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Thanks to /i. for pointing that out!
hmmm... you should upgrade ( *manually*, i reckon swaret does NOT handle this "dependency" ) not only gtk+2,but also atk, pango and glib2 ( am i forgetting something ?!... dont think so... ) .... use "swaret --list -u" , if you like, to have a list of available upgrades... that way the gtk+2 applications ( should ) run ok.
I'm still having the same problem. I have tried rolling back GTK, removing all GTK packages and reinstalling, nothing will work. I still cannot use any GTK application (symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgtk-x11-2.0.so.0: undefined symbol: g_option_context_new) nor can I untar anything (bus error).
I stay pretty up-to-date with the slackware-current branch and was also having this problem after the [Tue Dec 21 19:07:25 PST 2004] update. The problem turned out to be related to the fact that I build KDE via Konstruct instead of using the Slackware packages. Konstruct appears to build it's own version of glib2 and I have "/opt/kde3.3/lib" before "/usr/lib" in my /etc/ld.so.conf, so apps end up using the KDE version of glib2 instead of the Slackware version. Now that I know this is happening, when I get time I'd like to figure out how to prevent Konstruct from building glib2 and just use the installed version. Any ideas?
Oh.... I forgot to mention that rebuilding KDE with the latest Konstuct (stable) fixed the problem in my case... as it now appears to build glib2-2.6.0 My guess is that others having the same problems may also have conflicting versions of glib2.
