Same with most  (all?) gnome programs. Some - gnome-terminal - complain but
still start.

(The new gdk-pixbuf is part of gtk2 package)

I believe this was librsvg2 overwriting the loaders file, and it should be 
fixed in our latest packages, not sure if they're on rawhide yet.
Comment 2 sean 2002-12-23 12:08:16 EST
Yep. Just reinstalled gdk-pixbuf. Everything works again.

Thanks for the quick response.

Comment 3 sean 2002-12-23 12:11:35 EST
Spoke too quickly.  Reinstalling did *NOT* write gdk-pixbuf.loaders. Both gedit
and gftp fail.

Where does it come from? 
Comment 4 Owen Taylor 2002-12-23 16:26:25 EST
gdk-pixbuf is the gnome-1.4 package, not involved here.

Reinstall the gtk2 package, or better, install the current
librsvg2 package, which is the source of the problem.
(It incorrectly packaged the loaders file which is meant
to be generated.)
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2002-12-23 16:27:19 EST
A post script.
/usr/bin/gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders > /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders
should do it for you.
Comment 6 sean 2002-12-23 22:32:18 EST
OK. reinstalled librsvg2. Both gedit and gftp work.


 rpm -qif /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk*
file /etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders is not owned by any package

I still don't understand how it failed to begin with.
