I have been updating all my machines to gimp 2.2.10. It works fine on all of them except for my HP ZD 7000 laptop. 2.2.0 worked fine on this box. I'm getting the infamous wire_read error whenever I try to open a file. I've googled for some time and there seem to be countless solutions, none of which work for me. The error I get is:

that is a message that is sent by a healthy script-fu server when gimp

i wonder if your gimp is using the old gimp libraries.

I don't think so.  Here is a ldd dump:

did you build this gimp yourself or did your distribution install it?

I built it myself, which I am accustomed to doing. I am on SuSE 9.0 boxes, so everything basically goes into /opt/gnome.

one quick way to check to see if it is using the wrong library is to:
[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~> whereis gimp

[EMAIL PROTECTED]:~> whereis libgimp

They are both correct.

if you have some gimp stuff in /usr/lib and also in /usr/local/lib that
would be what is making the crash.

if you still have the gimp-2.2.0 sources around, as root, "make
uninstall"  and then in the new gimp-2.2.10 sources, "make install"

I also had already done this.  I don't like stray stuff laying around.

let me know how this goes


Thanks for you help.
