What versions of freetype and fontconfig are you using?
How could I find this out? (Sorry for being so amateur, but I switched to Linux only three months ago.)
Go to the mandrake control center, package category, and launch the remove package tool. There you can search for "fontconfig" and "freetype", and it should return you the name of the rpm packages installed on your system.
DO NOT UNINSTALL THEM. just note the name of the packages
On a Mandrake 10.0, you should have: fontconfig-2.2.1-7mdk.i586.rpm libfontconfig1-2.2.1-7mdk.i586.rpm freetype-1.3.1-21mdk.i586.rpm freetype-tools-1.3.1-21mdk.i586.rpm freetype2-tools-2.1.7-1mdk.i586.rpm libfreetype6-2.1.7-4mdk.i586.rpm
also, there are packages called gimp-freetype (don't ask me what they do, I think it is the freetype plugin, so there are not relevant)
Just as a data point, I have gimp 2.0.5 installed on my Mandrake 10.0
Could you also give the version of your gtk2 package called libgtk+2.0-versionnumber-numbermdk.i586.rpm
On an original mdk 10.0, it is 2.2.4, which I am not sure is enough for gimp 2.0.5.
PS: there are some rpm of gimp 2.0.3 here: http://wwwra.informatik.uni-rostock.de/~waschk/Mandrake/10.0/
