I have also tried installing GTK 2.4 on SuSE 9.1 without success. I=20
have not tried 2.6 yet. SuSE 9.1 comes with GTK 2.2.4. Many things=20
stop working when GTK 2.4 is installed and it appears that many=20
applications would need to be rebuilt to get things working again. I=20
am considering installing SuSE 9.2 as it comes with GTK 2.4. Wish=20
there was a better way to deal with these libraries. But again don't=20
stop moving forward on my account.
I was able to install GTK 2.4 from usr-local-bin.org, but they don't
have 2.6 up at this time. I recall having a lot of problems trying to
compile either 2.4 or 2.6.
