NetworkManager will not use gnutls-3.4.4.1; complains about libgnutls.so.28


After applying the updates from that big batch on Friday (thanks Pat!) I have discovered that NetworkManager does not like the new version of gnutls.

I've tried recompiling NetworkManager from source so that it might link against the new gnutls; no luck.

Next, I tried compiling mozilla-nss (There's a new version out, 3.20) and then recompiling NetworkManager against that; still no love.

Last, I tried changing the configure options in the SlackBuild to use gnutls instead of nss for crypto. Alas, no go.

I'm at my wits' end. Is there something which I missed, some configuration option, some symlink? Or is this just the state in which -current is right now?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Regards,

Matt

Try to come up with more detailed error messages. It may be something else than NetworkManager... for instance a library against which NetworkManager is linking may still need an upgrade.

Use "ldd" to find out what is missing.

I can be so dense sometimes; I missed the rebuild of glib-networking-2.44.0, and the version on my system was 2.42.1. After upgrading, all was well. It could be that with all the updates, I overlooked that line. As careful as I tend to be with my system, this proves that I can still be quite human, for better or for worse. Thanks for the help, AlienBOB. Your suggestion to use ldd was spot-on.

NOTE: In retrospect, I think it was the reference to gnutls that was throwing me off. I should have read the error messages a little more; it clearly referenced a 'libgiognutls' which, when googled, led me to look at the glib-networking package. A little further down the line, I discovered my oversight. Sometimes, I just need not to discard any error information, as it can help in diagnostics.
