I have also tried installing GTK 2.4 on SuSE 9.1 without success. I have not tried 2.6 yet. SuSE 9.1 comes with GTK 2.2.4. Many things stop working when GTK 2.4 is installed and it appears that many applications would need to be rebuilt to get things working again. I am considering installing SuSE 9.2 as it comes with GTK 2.4. Wish there was a better way to deal with these libraries. But again don't stop moving forward on my account. -- Hal V. Engel
