I worked on that one for a while. I finally just put in what you see
below. I have no idea if it works, since I don't know what the spec
for dirname is.
/* hmm: for some reason this function is used here but not at all
available on my redhat 4.2 system */
static char *dirname(char *tmp)
return g_strdup(strrchr(tmp, '/')); /* I think it's this easy */
I also added the g_strdup() just in case, since I see that the
dir = dirname (tmp);
rv = chdir (dir);
so tmp is freed before dir is used, which means that dirname() must
create new storage. But I don't really know how g_strdup works, since
it is not documented in the glib info docs.
With the routine I showed you gdiskfree compiles but does not run
because it says
** WARNING **: file gtkaccelgroup.c: line 203 (gtk_accel_group_detach): assertion "g_slist_find (accel_group->attach_objects, object) != NULL" failed.
[a bunch o' times, followed by]
** ERROR **: Could not create per-user Gnome directory </home/rosalia/.gnome> - aborting
So I just gave up on it.
