Mandrake 10 and GAIM


I currently installed GAIM from urpmi.

It opens, but once I hit Add on the account screen it crashes.

I thing went to my /usr/bin and ran it form there and get this error message:

./gaim: symbol lookup error: ./gaim: undefined symbol:
gtk_combo_box_new_with_model


This is the error the shows in the console after I actually run it and hit add.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

Sounds like it could be a GTK problem. Which GTK version are you using? Have you tried upgrading GTK? It can be a real pain, but I can tell you how to do it.

i am trying to install gaim 1.1.4, but when i try to run ./configure i get an error

checking for GLIB - version >= 2.0.0...
*** 'pkg-config --modversion glib-2.0' returned 2.6.3, but GLIB (2.4.6)
*** was found! If pkg-config was correct, then it is best
*** to remove the old version of GLib. You may also be able to fix the error
*** by modifying your LD_LIBRARY_PATH enviroment variable, or by editing
*** /etc/ld.so.conf. Make sure you have run ldconfig if that is
*** required on your system.
*** If pkg-config was wrong, set the environment variable PKG_CONFIG_PATH
*** to point to the correct configuration files
no
configure: error:
*** GLib 2.0 is required to build Gaim; please make sure you have the GLib
*** development headers installed. The latest version of GLib is

i dont know how to fix this

YOu have an old version of GLIB. It says on the first line right there. To grab the new versions, you have to go to

http://www.gtk.org

Do you know how to install them? i fnot, let me know and I can walk you through it

i have already installed glib 2.6.3 and did everything the install file said to, and i still have the same problem with gaim. i think the problem is i might have 2 versions of glib on my computer, but i dont know how to get rid of one. i have gtk+ 2.0. i tried install 2.6, but i need a newer version of atk, which needs the new glib

How did you install GTK, ATK, PANGO and GLIB? RPM? Source? I have installed all those in my /usr directory and have not had a problem with it.

This is part of the reason why GAIM cannot find the recent versions of GTK, GLIB, ATK, and Pango. I don't know exactly how to do this, but if you installed them to your /home directory, you have to tell your Linux system where these new versions are. Unfortunately, as I mentioned, I do not know how to do that. Something about exporting libraries and path, if you know that much. This is why I chose to ./configure and put it into my /usr directory where it installs it SYSTEMWIDE. Every user will have access to the new GLIB,GTK, ATK, and Pango by default without having to export anything. If you do not want this, then maybe someone else can help you with exporting library paths and such.

Also, I do not know if you are aware but you can also just type in the console as root:

urpmi gaim

and it will automatically download it and install it for you. you then just type 'gaim' to get it working.

Or, you can go into your Mandrake Control Center --> software --> install and search for gaim. You can install it that way, too!
