RE: [gtk-list] Re: Upgrading GTK+ on RedHat 5.0 machine

Thanks for that, but I have actually tried using the RPMs and I still
get the same problem.

I saw on a GIMP-related site info regarding this.  It appears the
control panel relies on a particular version of GTK+, so if you upgrade
GTK+ then the dependencies for control panel are broken.  I tried
upgrading to the control panel from RH5.1 as well...but still the same

I don't know if you've tried, but there are RPMs available for GTK+.
upgrading to those and/or removing you're old version of GTK+ before
upgrading.  Also, you can get updates for controlpanel from redhat.
