"What it means dogone is that Barry had some insight to the T2 base that other like myself didn't know, And sometimes one file might look like its faulty but actually its another, and you have to compile the dependencies up to that file to get it all working right again, I still don't figure out how Barry's method worked when he's not including 'Cups' itself, when I compiled Cups, it worked, but Cups then had permissions problems, But Abiword no longer crashed. Anyways I like the detail he puts into blog logs it helps me understand fully whats up, and teaches me some new tricks:) Thanks Barry :) ttuuxxx

"Hi Barry, could you seriously think about updating gtk+glib, The newer GTK is stable, I've been using it for weeks on 2.14.1X and haven't had any issues, its not just because of Searchmonkey, but even today when I went to compile this small mediaplayer that uses Gstreamer on 4.15, I recieved this message, and yes I can lower the specs in the code, but its just a start of this release and its already outdated and looks like parts are missing/broken? ttuuxxx checking for gtk+-2.0 >= 2.16.0... found, but 2.14.7 *** The required package gtk+-2.0 was found on your system, *** but the installed version (2.14.7) is too old. *** Please upgrade gtk+-2.0 to atleast version 2.16.0, or adjust *** the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable if you installed *** the new version of the package in a nonstandard prefix so *** pkg-config is able to find it.

"Dogone; beware the creation of a Cargo Cult (see for an explanation). Not everything from "the gods" is what you might conclude it to be! But like you I'm amazed at how Barry just 'does it'.
