Description Valdis Kletnieks 2010-08-24 00:12:47 EDT
Description of problem:
Not sure if this is a gobject-introspection bug, a Gtk3 bug, or a clutter-gtk bug. Tripped over this when it broke seed, but I don't think it's seed's fault.
Filing against gtk3 because it owns Gtk-3.0.typelib, feel free to reassign.

% /usr/bin/seed
> Gtk = imports.gi.Gtk;
[object Object]
> GtkClutter = imports.gi.GtkClutter;
GIrepositoryError Requiring namespace 'Gtk' version '2.0', but '3.0' is already loaded

The problem is that seed calls gobject-introspection, which then goes and looks at both /usr/lib64/girepository-1.0/Gtk-2.0.typelib and /usr/lib64/girepository-1.0/Gtk-3.0.typelib, so Gtk becomes a gtk3 object.  This comes as a surprise to GtkClutter, which was built against gtk2.  There doesn't seem to be any way for seed to specify to gobject-introspection that it doesn't want gtk3.

How is this 2 lines of seed code supposed to work properly?
