Lib issue...


First time here. Yes thank you! let's go... :)

I have tried to solve this issue for a while now, but without any luck.
This is what I get for trying to start x... <sigh>

Have a feeling Cairo is the bad guy here, but I'm unsure of how to solve this problem.
I recently compiled and installed Cairo 1.0.2, and configured the libs too. All the paths are in /etc/
and 'ldd /opt/gnome/bin/gnome-session' doesn't show anything weird.

ideas anyone? oh, and yes, I have searched the forum and google without any luck.

thanx in advance!

I'm running...
SuSE 10.0

I am happy to say that I have solved the problem. I just typed 'make uninstall' as root, in my cairo-1.0.2 directory. Now Gnome starts without a problem...
