I’ve updated Gnome 2.8 to 2.10 on two other boxes. The third box (which may have had lots of unstable packages on it) is complaining. When I emerge gnome, gnome-games fails with:

game.o(.text+0xa19): In function `bj_game_ensure_config_dir_exists(char const*)’:
undefined reference to g_mkdir(char const*, int)' collect2: ld returned 1 exit status make[3]: *** [blackjack] Error 1 make[3]: Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/gnome-games-2.10.1/work/gnome-games-2.10.1/blackjack/src’ make[2]: ** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[2]: Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/gnome-games-2.10.1/work/gnome-games-2.10.1/blackjack' make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1 make[1]: Leaving directory /var/tmp/portage/gnome-games-2.10.1/work/gnome-games-2.10.1’ make: ** [all] Error 2

!!! ERROR: gnome-extra/gnome-games-2.10.1 failed. !!! Function gnome2_src_compile, Line 41, Exitcode 2 !!! compile failure !!! If you need support, post the topmost build error, NOT this status message.

It’s insane because I really don’t want gnome-games but it’s a dependancy. Working through it … will post progress…

Emerging single packages seems to work, I wonder if g_mkdir is in a header I don’t have somewhere …

I emerged a set of packages (one and two at a time) out of the emerge -pv gnome dependancy list and I got past gnome-games. Must have been a libray somewhere. I will post the history of packages I emerged. I am 3 packages into emerge gnome, past the games. Must be working. Very close to getting 2.10 working on this machine. :)
