    libgnomebreakpad.so problem in Fedora 8 (x86_64)

    I've recently installed the 64 bit version of Fedora 8 (2.6.23.1-49.fc8). I get the following error message when I run the commercial statistical program xstata-se <http://www.stata.com>:

    Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load module "libgnomebreakpad.so": libgnomebreakpad.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    "libgnomebreakpad.so" seems to be part of bug-buddy. I have the following version installed:
    yum list bug-buddy
    Installed Packages
    bug-buddy.x86_64 1:2.20.1-1.fc8 installed

    You can search for which package provides a file, and use wildcards:
    Code:
    yum provides \*libgnomebreakpad.so\*

    Thanks. The package 'bug-buddy' is installed on my system.

    The developer of the GUI for this program commented that "We don't link against ibgnomebreakpad so I don't know where that warning is coming from. What's even stranger is that Stata 9 uses GTK1.2 and Stata 10 uses GTK+-2.0 which is where I would've figured the dependency comes from."

    sudo yum provides \*libgnomebreakpad.so\* : returns
    bug-buddy.x86_64 : A bug reporting utility for GNOME
    bug-buddy.x86_64 : A bug reporting utility for GNOME

    sudo yum list bug-buddy returns:
    Installed Packages
    bug-buddy.x86_64 1:2.20.1-1.fc8 installed

    You need to install the 32-bit bug-buddy

    Unfortunately, on a 64-bit Fedora 8 system, the 64-bit repos only contain the 64-bit bug-buddy. The Fedora folks really should put the 32-bit bug-buddy in the 64-bit repos, so that you can "yum install bug-buddy.i386". Instead, I'm afraid you'll have to manually download the Fedora 8 32-bit bug-buddy package from the 32-bit RPM download directory and "rpm -Uvh" the bug-buddy package by hand.

    BTW, this libgnomebreakpad.so error is most likely to crop up with closed source 32-bit apps - Adobe Acrobat Reader 8 (32-bit app - boo hiss) installed on a 64-bit Fedora 8 system also reproduces the problem when you run "acroread". Install that 32-bit RPM and the error goes away.

    The closed source program that generates the error is the 64-bit version of xstata-se.

    I installed the i386 version of bug-buddy as you suggest and still get the error. Interestingly, I don't get the error when I run as root. Ie.

    xstata-se
    [dsteele@dws Desktop]$
    Gtk-WARNING **: Failed to load module "libgnomebreakpad.so": libgnomebreakpad.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

    [dsteele@dws Desktop]$ sudo xstata-se
    ... opens without error.

    I fixed the libgnomebreakpad.so on my Fedora 8 x86 system when I added
    the file "/etc/ld.so.conf.d/gtk-2.0.conf" with the line:

    /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules

    and ran ldconfig.

    Seems the modules is there from bug-buddy, but the load path wasn't set.

    Ahhh I just love fedoraforum. Thanks this fixed a similar problem for me. This sounds like it should go into a Fedora bugzilla bug?

    Cheers

    looks like it's already there:

    https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=389921

    I don't think it is a x86/x86-64 issue but a gtk+ issue (as it fixed the problem for me for a i386 app on i686 Fedora).

    I originated the this thread and tried the suggested fix. I created the file below with the line below:

    the file "/etc/ld.so.conf.d/gtk-2.0.conf" with the line:
    /usr/lib/gtk-2.0/modules

    I ran the command 'ldconfig' (as root) in this directory and still get the error. I'm not familial with ldconfig. Did I miss something ? Thanks.

    I have tried the advice with no success.
    The error appears when calling gvim etc.

    I tried
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules" ; gvim

    and it seems to work.

    The easiest solution is


    su
    yum erase bug-buddy

    Hi guys !
    After reading and digesting all your helpful comments and suggestions, I found that the following worked fine with me (Fedora 8) :
    Download the rpm: bug-buddy-2.20.1-1.fc8.i386.rpm, which I found here: http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i386.rpm.html
    Surprisingly (to me, eh eh !), rpm -ivh did not complain about any conflict with the already installed bug-buddy for 64 bits. Well, not so surprisingly after all, as the two libraries are installed in distinct directories ...
    This solved all my problems (in my case, just an error message when starting up Adobe Reader).
    Ciao !

    you probably want this line if you are x86_64 - /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules

    creating the gtk-2.0.conf file and adding that line fixed this for me (netbeans when running C pgm)

    I got this issue while screwing around with lirc stuff.

    I would like to join the ranks of those who have been helped successfully with the proposed solution (adding the gtk-2.0 file)
    Thanks.
