Description of problem:
I upgraded Gimp 2.0 to Gimp 2.2 with the rpm found here:

But when I start Gimp now, I get the following errors:

Upgrading gtk to version gtk2-2.6.0-1 (also on the site mentioned
above) solved this problem. It seems that some dependencies are not

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora Core 3
2. Upgrade Gimp to version 2.2.0-1
3. Start Gimp

Actual Results:  Several error messages, see description. Gimp does
not start.

Expected Results:  Gimp should start with no error messages

Comment 1 Nils Philippsen 2004-12-30 15:52:33 UTC
I won't fix this because it would because the burden to maintain separate spec
files for the various FC releases doesn't outweigh the benefit of being able to
run Rawhide gimp on FC3, especially if gimp-2.2.1 will be pushed to
fc3-updates-candidate soon (grab the packages from
http://people.redhat.com/nphilipp/BETA/gimp until they hit the mirrors).

Comment 2 Nils Philippsen 2004-12-30 15:59:48 UTC
Strike "because it would" above. Ouch.

Comment 3 Manish Singh 2005-02-21 22:22:16 UTC
At least update the dependencies to the latest gtk 2.4 please (where the
GtkEntry struct size is fixed), as this is frequently reported in our bug tracker.

As it is, it's way to easy for people to upgrade gimp but not gtk and get the
resultant breakage.

Comment 4 Nils Philippsen 2005-02-23 09:50:10 UTC
The new gimp 2.2.4 packages require gtk2 >= 2.4.14 and should hit
Rawhide/Updates soon.
