Description Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-04 09:32:24 EST
Description of problem:

$ gaim
Creating link /home/nim/.kde/socket-rousalka.dyndns.org.
can't create mcop directory


(problem probably not in gaim, but if Red Hat insists in having Gnome apps
depend on KDE stuff I can play dumb too)

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


How reproducible:


CCing mharris as this is one more modular X fallout, and shows nicely how apps
abused X11 before

This is not a Gaim bug, but a duplicate of bug 169631
I'm fairly sure it's totally unrelated to modular X too.
Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-04 12:36:42 EST
It's not unrelated to X11.

kde and arts were mucking with xorg to create these bits, and gor kicked out of
xorg when it got modularised

You're right about the duplicate part though

Though since bug #169631 has been closed without any fix, I won't duplicate it

I don't see how one of the main distro apps crashing on start when using
distro-provided settings is "not a bug"

KDE sockets have nothing to do with modular X, or X at all.  That's KDE
specific stuff.
