 I have some problem with firefox after the last update to 3.03, it wil not start!

Code:
firefox
/usr/lib/MozillaFirefox/firefox-bin: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/libgnome-2.so.0: undefined symbol: g_dgettext

Anyone else with the same problem, or better yet, a solution?

Hello,

It seems that the package "libgnome" that came with the latest updates is faulty. Therefore a temporary solution that I could find is to remove the libgnome package with the following command:

sudo pisi rm libgnome --ignore-dependency

Hope this helps.

Aren't there other packages which depend on libgnome? Will those be affected by removing libgnome?

Reverse dependencies for libgnome are:

libbonoboui
gnome-python
anjuta
libgnomeui

If you try to remove libgnome without the parameter "ignore-dependency", the above packages will also be removed. As I said the solution I proposed is just a temporary one. To minimize the adverse effects of removing libgnome, I issued the command with the "ignore-dependency" parameter... If you do not remove lignome, the net effect is that you will not be able to use Firefox (or Netscape and possibly Flock). So the choice is yours... Smiley

I removed libgnome without removing other dependencies. My beloved firefox is back in action. Thanks a lot! Smiley
If this is a temporary fix then when will the proper fix come out? Is this a fault of the GNOME developers?

As I follow from the developer lists, Pardus developers are aware of the problem. So I think they will come up with a proper fix in a day or two...

Good to know that the developers are working on the fix. This is the first time I have come across a problem in this otherwise flawless distribution. I just love Pardus.

@trixon

Please edit the Thread as [solved] in your first post, because the problem is from developers fixed.

Thanks.
