Description derry 2000-01-26 14:53:26 EST
I upgraded from 5.2 to 6.0, and X-Windows crashes. Getting the following
gnome_login_check: error in loading shared
libraries: /usr/lib/libgnomeui.so.32: undefined symbol:
/usr/bin/gnome-session: error in loading shared
libraries: /usr/lib/libgnomeui.so.32: undefined symbol:

I have a S3 Trio32/64 video card on an IBM PC350. X-Windows was working
before the upgrade.
Comment 1 Havoc Pennington 2000-01-31 14:35:59 EST
You should be able to solve this problem by upgrading your Imlib package to the
latest version included on the 6.0 CD. GNOME and X in general should be even
nicer in the versions shipped with 6.1 and subsequent errata, however.
I'm not sure why the upgrade failed to install the proper Imlib though.
Comment 2 derry 2000-01-31 16:18:59 EST
I performed the upgrade booting up using installation CD, and made sure package,
imlib, is selected, and proceed with the upgrade. Error doesn't go away. In a
subsequent upgrade, I upgraded gnome-libs only thinking that may be you meant
for me to upgrade gnome-libs instead of imlib, error still persists.
Comment 3 Havoc Pennington 2000-01-31 16:55:59 EST
Please try installing the GNOME RPMs from here:

Use "rpm -Uvh <packagenames>" to install them. Also get the 6.1 version of
Imlib from the mirror of your choice:
