Description Bill Nottingham 2010-12-13 16:33:59 EST
Description of problem:

Via brasero libs. Given the app and the other extensions are linked against gtk2, this could be bad.

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

gthumb-2.12.1-1.fc15.x86_64

I'd like to fully understand the issue, please can you be a little bit more specific: ;-)

a) what's the specific problem, what can "be bad"

b) what's the best practice to solve this issue? Compiling gthumb against gtk3? What if there isn't a full gtk3 port yet? ...

Use the wrong version of the symbols, and therefore crash, etc. It's avoided in apps by having them abort on start if they're linked against both versions; in plugins it's a bit murkier.

1) port gthumb to gtk3
2) disable the brasero plugin
3) figure out if the plugin and brasero libs actually need GTK... if not, take them out of the link

There may be other solutions.

I have temporarily disabled the brasero plugin and created a new RAWHIDE build:

https://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=209266

Additionally I've created a bug report upstream for porting gthumb to GTK+3 (including a description of the mixed linkage issue).
