in reply to [SOLVED]: Issue with Glib1.261 & 1.260

You have been given the solution to remove all libs and reinstall, but in case a Gtk newbie is reading this, I would like to explain that the libs are dependent on an install order, and if you change/upgrade 1 library in that chain, all the librarys later in the chain must be recompiled/reinstalled. See Building Gtk , where the install order command is:

build and install the GTK+ libraries in the order: GLib, Pango, ATK, then GTK+.

So that means if you change Glib, you need to rebuild Pango, ATK, and GTK+.

    Hi zentara

    Sorry. I miss something here. As of now, I am using ActiveState perl's PPM & sisyphusion's repository to install Glib, Gtk2, Cairo, Pango etc... dependencies as a Binary installation.
    should I build and install Gtk2 myself?
    Do you suspect the sisyphusion's repository builds?



    Thanks & Regards,

      Hi, all I am pointing out is that these GTK+ libraries are interdependent in their versions, and you just can't upgrade 1, without messing up the dependency chain. They should be built as a set.

      Do you suspect the sisyphusion's repository builds?

      No, I'm sure what Sisyphus does is beyond any suspiscion.
