MCC / drakconf didn't start

Postby maxperl » Aug 2nd, '16, 10:00

Hello everybody,

On my system (Mageia 6 sta1) drakconf / MCC didn't start anymore.

The following error is outputed:

Ignore the following Glib::Object::Introspection & Gtk3 warnings
Can't locate object method "enable_exceptions" via package "Gtk3" at /usr/lib/libDrakX/ line 36.
Compilation failed in require at /usr/libexec/drakconf line 40.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/libexec/drakconf line 40.

If I uncomment line 36 in, MCC starts again. But a really solution is this not...

I have installed a newer version of the Perl Gtk3 module (0.28). Perhaps this could be the reason of the error?

I encountered exactly the same problem.
I commented the (and not uncomment as previous message says, supposed it was an error ?) line 36 in, then MCC starts again, but it is clearly not an acceptable solution.

I run with that version : Linux mga-pret-fixe 4.14.44-desktop-2.mga6 #1 SMP Mon May 28 22:35:45 UTC 2018 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux
Maybe it could help : the problem appeared just after installing 32 bits X11 libraries (whereas I work on 64 bits system, and X11 was already present in 64 bits but I needed 32 also), and "/usr/lib" folder to the PATH and, as 32 bits libraries where not detected by ldconfig until that. A few before it worked, and a few after no more...

If you need more precisions please ask, any help appreciated !

When you can reproduce it then it should be reported as a bug.
But as you mentioned changig LD_LIB path or whatever you did exactly that might affect the problem. I've not seen any other report of that issue other then this thread, which was about a mga6 prerelease version.
