Description Simon Matthews 2007-12-19 01:39:58 UTC
I noticed that Galeon compains about not being able to run gnomebreakpad because of This file is found in /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/ however, there is no reference to /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/ in /etc/ (nor in any of the files in /etc/env.d). 

Several packages use that directory for libraries:
gdm, gail and bug-buddy. Is this an oversight with gnome-2.20?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Update to gnome-2.20 Galeon 
3. Observe that it compains about gnomebreakpad and 

Expected Results:  
Somehow /usr/lib64/gtk-2.0/modules/ should be added to /etc/

No. It doesn't belong to It's a directory where gtk+ looks for its own modules. is a different issue than you think. doesn't really matter on a Gentoo system if regardless of that bug-buddy does get a stacktrace in case of crashes - gnomebreakpad is used in binary distributions mainly to send minidumps to a server, that will match it with the matching debug packages to get a full stacktrace and as every Gentoo system is compiled differently, it isn't useful for gentoo right now anyhow and we just use FEATURES=splitdebug combined with CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -ggdb" to get as good information (or also FEATURES=installsources and get even better traces).
