Description of problem:
After upgrading some packages, among them glib2, almost all Gnome-related
programs started to crash.  Owen Taylor explained the background for this:

   You need to upgrade your libgnomeui package. The somewhat detailed  
   explanation is that

   - It's been illegal to create base class types like GObject, or tkWidget. But 
     it used to more or less do something.

   - We enforced the restriction in GLib-2.2, which showed that libgnomeui was 
     doing g_object_new (GTK_TYPE_WIDGET, NULL); in one spot, which caused a 
     crash.

There oght to be attributes in the RPM:s to protect this from happening. 
(Assuming no --force or similar, of course.)

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

How reproducible:
Always

Additional info:

A "Conflicts: libgnomeui < 2.1.90" in glib2 looks like an appropriate thing to me.
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2004-05-19 16:40:23 EDT
There's acutally a Conflicts: libgnomeui <= 2.2.0
