Description Marius Andreiana 2007-02-20 14:21:08 UTC
Description of problem:
tried to run vmware player, it gives:

GThread-ERROR **: GThread system may only be initialized once.
Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "gail": /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/
undefined symbol: atk_misc_instance
/usr/lib/vmware/bin/vmplayer: symbol lookup error:
/usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/ undefined symbol: atk_misc_get_instance

Looks like it's atk's fault

Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-23 04:34:45 UTC
What version of atk do you have installed ?

atk_misc_get_instance was added in atk 1.13. I've bumped the atk requirement to
that version now.

Comment 2 Marius Andreiana 2007-02-24 16:11:07 UTC
Still doesn't work with current rawhide.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-24 22:46:32 UTC
not clear to me what is happening here. 

[mclasen@localhost atk-1.17.0]$ nm -D /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules/ | grep atk
         U atk_misc_get_type
         U atk_misc_instance

[mclasen@localhost atk-1.17.0]$ nm -D /usr/lib/ | grep atk_misc
0587e170 T atk_misc_get_instance
0587e190 T atk_misc_get_type
058877e0 B atk_misc_instance
0587e130 T atk_misc_threads_enter
0587e150 T atk_misc_threads_leave

Certainly looks to me like libatk is providing what gail needs.

Comment 4 Marius Andreiana 2007-02-25 07:58:00 UTC
I get the same.

If you think it's vmplayer's fault, please close this. I haven't got a reply
from them:
It looks like it's vmplayer, since other gnome/gtk apps are working ok.


Comment 5 Matthias Clasen 2007-02-25 15:56:02 UTC
Thanks for that information; closing then.
