Description Jaromír Cápík 2012-03-22 14:02:29 EDT
Description of problem:
I experienced the following error with gtk3-3.3.18-1 combined with glib2-2.31.16-1 ...

symbol lookup error: /lib/libgtk-3.so.0: undefined symbol: g_signal_set_va_marshaller

The problem disappeared after updating glib2 to 2.31.20-1 ...

I've checked the spec file and the problem lies in the %global glib2_version definition ... it's currently set to 2.31.16 and that doesn't seem to work correctly with gtk3 3.3.18 (and possibly higher).
Please, update the spec and rebuild ... 

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

Hit the same issue with:

# export GTK_BACKEND=broadway
# gcalctool 
GLib-GIO-Message: Using the 'memory' GSettings backend.  Your settings will not be saved or shared with other applications.
gcalctool: symbol lookup error: /lib64/libgtk-3.so.0: undefined symbol: g_signal_set_va_marshaller

Now upgrading to the latest versions.
