Pango source and package


Linux newbie dashing face first into installing things, urg. The problem at hand is that while I was trying to install GTK+ and its tag alongs, atk, pango, etc, I stopped at Pango because I encountered some errors that seemed perplexing. It was then that I stumbled on to the .rpm concept and found a search engine to update pango's package for SuSe 9.1. But, after doing that I noticed that firefox, thunderbird, and azureus stopped working.

Under the cli this is what I get for starting azureus:

./azureus
Starting Azureus...
Java exec found in PATH. Verifying...
Suitable java version found [java = 1.4.2_03]
Configuring environment...
Loading Azureus:
java -Xms16m -Xmx128m -cp "/home/percy/azureus/Azureus2.jar:/home/percy/azureus/
swt.jar:/home/percy/azureus/swt-mozilla.jar:/home/percy/azureus/swt-pi.jar" -Dja
va.library.path="/home/percy/azureus" -Dazureus.install.path="/home/percy/azureu
s" org.gudy.azureus2.ui.swt.Main ''

I learned the lesson of not to mix source and rpm now. (At least I hope I have) What can I do to drag myself out of this mess?

As an aside, I didn't place the source files under the /usr/local/src either.

it's hard for us to tell what you have done and what was installed before you started
anything you installed from source is most likely in /usr/local and i bet are not causing you troubles

you installed an rpm and updated pango ?
did you have to force that somehow ?
i'd try to uninstall that and install the old one again

Hi, I took your advice and clawed back on the rpms that I installed. Now if I try to run something, say Firefox, the cli brings this:

./firefox

(firefox-bin:21893): GLib-GObject-WARNING **: specified class size for type `PangoXftFontMap' is smaller than the parent type's `PangoFontMap' class size

(firefox-bin:21893): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: file gobject.c: line 819 (g_object_new): assertion `G_TYPE_IS_OBJECT (object_type)' failed
./run-mozilla.sh: line 451: 21893 Segmentation fault "$prog" ${1+"$@"}

~~

I looked bits of this up on Google and I think this has something to do with old libraries? If this is the case then how would I fix this? If it's not, then maybe I ought to make the solution real easy and just reinstall Suse.
