libatk-bridge.so: undefined symbol: atk_misc_get_instance
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
tried to run vmware player, it gives:
GThread-ERROR **: GThread system may only be initialized once.
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gail": /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/libgail.so:
undefined symbol: atk_misc_instance
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmplayer: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/libatk-bridge.so: undefined symbol: atk_misc_get_instance
Looks like it's atk's fault
What version of atk do you have installed ?
atk_misc_get_instance was added in atk 1.13. I've bumped the atk requirement to
that version now.
Still doesn't work with current rawhide.
not clear to me what is happening here.
[mclasen@localhost atk-1.17.0]$ nm -D /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/libgail.so | grep atk
[mclasen@localhost atk-1.17.0]$ nm -D /usr/lib/libatk-1.0.so.0 | grep atk_misc
0587e170 T atk_misc_get_instance
0587e190 T atk_misc_get_type
058877e0 B atk_misc_instance
0587e130 T atk_misc_threads_enter
0587e150 T atk_misc_threads_leave
Certainly looks to me like libatk is providing what gail needs.
I get the same.
If you think it's vmplayer's fault, please close this. I haven't got a reply
It looks like it's vmplayer, since other gnome/gtk apps are working ok.
Thanks for that information; closing then.
