GTK "gseal" fix

December 09, 2011 — BarryK
Wary and Racy 5.2.2 users have reported applications failing to compile, with "gseal" error messages.

I had gone through a rather tiring process of getting GTK to work properly prior to releasing 5.2.2, and didn't feel like getting into that again. Here are some of the pre-5.2.2 deliberations:

Well, the "gseal" problem needed to be fixed. I have rolled back to GTK 2.24.5, compiled with this:

# ./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-t2-linux-gnu --with-xinput=yes --enable-debug=minimum --enable-introspection=no

After installing it, I tested 'quicksetup' and the dropdown lists are fast (that was a big problem before). I compiled gtktetris, that ttuuxxx had reported gave the "gseal" errors -- now it compiles.

Here are the PETs (2.3MB, 266KB):

The next releases of Wary and Racy will be built with these.
