Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-26 11:28:27 EDT
What version of glib2 do you have installed?
Comment 2 Henrique Martins 2006-10-26 11:33:23 EDT
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-26 11:48:57 EDT
Do you have a /usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0 file?

Are there glib-related errors in your upgrade log?
Comment 4 Henrique Martins 2006-10-26 12:03:26 EDT
% ll /usr/lib/libglib* 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     21 Oct 25 06:23 /usr/lib/libglib-1.2.so.0 ->
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 169884 Aug 29 11:14 /usr/lib/libglib-1.2.so.0.0.10*

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root     21 Oct 25 06:23 /usr/lib/libglib.so -> libglib-1.2.s\

I don't think I have any glib-related errors in upgrade.log.  I'll attach the
output of
  grep -i -e error -e warning ~root/upgrade.log

Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2006-10-26 12:16:22 EDT
You have an old glib2 in /usr (/usr/lib/libglib-2.0.so.0.600.6). Removing that
and rerunning ldconfig should fix things.
Comment 7 Henrique Martins 2006-10-26 12:53:36 EDT
Bitten by an ATRPMS package.  That stuff come in with:
which I may have needed at some point.  I just noticed that I still have a lot
of fc4 and fc5 packages, mostly from ATRPMS, that I'll need to clean up.

I removed the package above, rerun ldconfig, and now I have another missing
symbol, g_initially_unowned_get_type, but I guess I should spend some time and
get rid of old libs, then try it again :-)
Comment 8 Henrique Martins 2006-10-26 13:12:25 EDT
Needed to remove these three additional glib2 packages from ATRPMS that were
lingering on my system
Reran ldconfig, and now gnucash comes up.  I'm running it from home, to work,
over ssh, thus can't really run it to see is something else is screwed up, but
I'd bet that is it.
