Description Beer 2005-05-04 05:19:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.7) Gecko/20050416 Fedora/1.0.3-1.3.1 Firefox/1.0.3

Description of problem:
You must include GTKmm this time, we love GTK OO with class inheritance!!!
libstdc++ is included but no way to present a graphical interface with C++ OO, we need the GTKmm rpm on anaconda's package list.

The Program fails to load gtkmm so dependancy and fails. This is caused by the module loader searching the LD_LIBRARY_PATH directories for the libgtkmm.so file and not being able to find it, thus failing to load it in the proc address.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gtkmm20-2.2.12-1

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install FC
2. Use a program that depends on C++ GTK, aka gtkmm
3. See program not able to load dependant so module in proc address and die
  

Actual Results:  The Program fails to load gtkmm so dependancy and fails. This is caused by the module loader searching the LD_LIBRARY_PATH directories for the libgtkmm.so file and not being able to find it, thus failing to load it in the proc address.

Expected Results:  that anaconda installs gtkmm20 rpm on OS install and C++ programmers have a means to use GTKmm for OOriented graphical displays and class inheritance on GTK objects instead of passing a gobject pointer to every single function that performs actions on widgets.

Additional info:

not having GTKmm installed with FCore is annoying at best, and sucky at worst.

gtkmm is included in Fedora Extras
