Some things missing in Gnome 2.6?


I upgraded my Slackware-current to the Gnome 2.6. I get some errors either on the screen in the log.

Error box 'failed to load image file-manager - file not found'

There also seem to be panel icons missing, hicolor style I think.

Anyone else with these issues?

Did you check the changelog for packages that were added and removed? Some packages were added (and some removed) so if you just used swaret or slapt-get to upgrade, it wouldn't have picked those up. You'll have to add and remove those packages individually, then everything should work fine...or atleast GNOME 2.6 is working beautifully for me.

Hmm, interesting point. I ran swaret --upgrade -a and it upgraded Gnome. I had the previously current gnome 2.4, which I went into to make sure it worked, but then didn't use again. I didn't think about new and removed packages.

FYI for everyone, here is the list from the current changelog:

REMOVED:
gnome/acme-2.4.2-i486-1.tgz: Removed.
gnome/gal2-2.1.4-i486-1.tgz: Removed.
gnome/gnome-extra-themes-1.0.1-noarch-1.tgz: Removed (no need for theme bloat).
gnome/linc-1.0.3-i486-1.tgz: Removed.

ADDED:
gnome/gnome-themes-extras-0.7-i486-1.tgz: Added gnome-themes-extras-0.7.
gnome/hicolor-icon-theme-0.5-noarch-1.tgz: Added hicolor-icon-theme-0.5.
gnome/libcroco-0.5.1-i486-1.tgz: Added libcroco-0.5.1.
gnome/libxklavier-1.02-i486-1.tgz: Added libxklavier-1.02.
gnome/shared-mime-info-0.14-i486-1.tgz: Added shared-mime-info-0.14
gnome/totem-0.99.11-i486-1.tgz: Added totem-0.99.11.
gnome/epiphany-extensions-0.8.2-i486-1.tgz: Added epiphany-extensions-0.8.2.
gnome/gpdf-0.131-i486-1.tgz: Added gpdf-0.131
gnome/gnome-keyring-0.2.1-i486-1.tgz: Added gnome-keyring-0.2.1.
gnome/gnome-netstatus-2.6.1-i486-1.tgz: Added gnome-netstatus-2.6.1.

RECOMPILED:

Yep, as I mentioned above just removepkg each of the removed packages individually and install the added packages with swaret and you should be fine.

I had problems with missing icons in Gnome 2.6 after I upgraded to Slack current a couple of days ago. Why doesn't Swaret pick up all the packages? I invoked it several times for upgrades but it just kept telling me that I was up to date.

So I opened Kpackage and manually compared what I had on my system with what was in the Slackware Current Gnome ftp directory. There were a few packages that Swaret didn't catch. Why??

So now I'm wondering if there are other packages that I'm missing outside the Gnome directory.

Also, how do you keep up with packages that are removed as part of Current? Do you occassionally read the change log and delete packages from your system accordingly? If you leave the "removed" packages on your system do they cause any harm or are they just obsolete?

i guess my overriding question is: How do you keep your system in sync with Slack current, given that packages are removed as part of Current, as well as being added? Swaret would catch the packages to be added, but what about the packages to be deleted?

Does the package:
gnome/gnome-keyring-0.2.1-i486-1.tgz: Added gnome-keyring-0.2.1.
contain libgnome-keyring.so.0?
I am getting about 20 packages flagging this as a missing dependancy

Based on what I'm seeing in Kpackage, gnome/gnome-keyring-0.2.1-i486-1.tgz does install libgnome-keyring.so.0.0.0

Hope this helps! I had to go through the gnome package on Slackware-current website to make sure I got all the files. Swaret had failed to download quite a few so my Gnome didn't display properly.

It works, for some reason swaret --ugrade -a was not fetching this.
Still need to fetch xklavier, but I can see that.
One error on liblinc but I have removed the linc package, required by gnomeicu.

Well couldnt you just do swaret --upgrade -a after its complete do swaret --dep then swaret --install gnome.. That will install any components not installed and it will say blah blah installed and it will skip that package.
