This is probably way off topic for this ML (so please ignore if you
want), but it started w/the Gimp, so what hell...
I compiled new versions of atk/glib2/gtk2/pango in order to start
checking out the 2.3 series of the Gimp.
Everything went fine. I removed the old atk/glib2/gtk2/pango RPMs along
w/their respected devel RPMs. I then make installed (via checkinstall)
all the new GTK and friends, so I now have lovely round RPMs of each
package installed. Now I compiled Gimp 2.3.0, and, yet again, all went
However, when I run YAST now, it insists on reinstalling the old GTK
(and friends) devel RPMs. Of course, I don't want to do that as the new
header files are already installed. The RPMs I created (with
checkinstall) contain the header files. The RPM packages just weren't
broken out into 2 RPMs per package (i.e., binary RPM and devel RPM) like
SuSE and other distros tend to do.
Any tips on this dilemma?
Thanks for reading,
Ps. I'm running SuSE 9.2 pro
