I've got a bit of a wierd problem here, and am wondering if anyone has seen
it before. I don't think its directly a GTK problem per se, but maybe
someone here has seen this before...
(Note - Let me be explicitely clear ahead of time - My $DISPLAY is correctly
I'm working on Linux (Mandrake 8.1, gcc 3.0.1, etc) with gtk 1.2.10 (Ximian)
When I build a dynamic executable, everything works find, as expected.
When I build a static executable (-static linker option), I can't run the
executable any more. When I try, I get the following output:
Gdk-WARNING **: locale not supported by Xlib, locale set to C
Gdk-WARNING **: can not set locale modifiers
Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display: :0
Note that I do not get these locale messages when running the dynamic one.
Not knowing much about locales, I'm pretty sure that I'm not explicitely
doing anything, nor do I think my environment has anything strange...
% env | grep LC_
Hmmm... lets see... what else.... Most of the GTK code was generated from
Glade, the executable is C++, no threads, no exceptions, strace didn't
show anything interesting...
Does anyone know what is going on here?
Thanks for any info!
