Description of problem:
Trying to put the system monitor applet on the panel in FC3.  I right
click with the mouse on the panel, select `Add to panel`, scroll down
to  System Monitor and select it.  A box titled `Question` pops up
with the message:

The panel encountered a problem while loading
Details: Failed to resolve, or extend

Do you want to delete the applet from your configuration?

If I select `Delete`, no applet is added to the panel, and if I select
`Don't Delete`, no applet is added to the panel.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome panel 2.8.1

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select `add to panel` on the gnome panel.
2. Select System Monitor from gui box.

Actual Results:  Error message opens, and no applet is added to the panel.

Expected Results:  The System Monitor applet should have appeared on
the panel.

If you do:

  $> gnome-session-remove gnome-panel
  $> /usr/libexec/multiload-applet-2

and from another command line do:

  $> GNOME_PANEL_DEBUG=1 gnome-panel

do you see any error messages from either the panel or
multiload-applet-2? If so paste the error messages here.

If multiload-applet-2 crashes, please see:


on how to get a stack trace.

Comment 2 Michael Zemcov 2004-11-15 09:55:20 UTC
Right, did

$> gnome-session-remove gnome-panel
$> /usr/libexec/multiload-applet-2

And I get the following error (using gdb):

/usr/libexec/multiload-applet-2: error while loading shared libraries:
libgtop-2.0.so.2: cannot open shared object file: No such file or

Program exited with code 0177.

So it looks like it's missing a .so file is all.

Comment 3 Mark McLoughlin 2004-11-15 11:14:39 UTC
Right, you need the libgtop2 package.

The gnome-applets package requires this, so you must have installed
--force or something ?
