Missing Gnome shared library on upgraded 9.0
I just upgraded my system from 8.1 to 9.0. everything went well except for the fact that my gaim wont load. Every time i try to start is i get this error:

gaim: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

could someone tell me where i can get that shared library. i searched but everything there was rpm's for redhat. my aim name is tuxx0rz if anyone can upload me the file im almost always on.

u can get corresponding pkg from slack8.1 mirror
look at MANIFEST file

or if it's just gaim, i would upgrade gaim

If you have the 9.0 cd, the file you're missing is part of the gtk+2-2.2.1-i386-1.tgz package. So to install that package on my machine I would:

cd /mnt/cdrom/slackware/l
installpkg gtk+2-2.2.1-i386-1.tgz

You can search the cd for files you may be looking for by searching the file MANIFEST.gz (which is located under the slackware directory on the cd):

zless /mnt/cdrom/slackware/MANIFEST.gz
then hit the / key and type any words/filenames you're looking for.
