this is no longer a problem, as GTK+ >= 2.10.2 selectively excludes from
compilation all the code that needs DFB >= 0.9.26 to work (minimum
requirement is now DFB 0.9.24)
Yes, actually I continued working on Gtk 2.10.0 in our SVN but
backported the needed delta from Gtk's CVS back then (this was before
the relevant Gtk release). This is in pkg-gnome's SVN since 10 days or
The GDKDFB backend found in GTK+ 2.10.2 contains many very important
enhancements and fixes Mike Emmel introduced Fri Aug 11, which are not
found in earlier (2.10.0, 2.10.1) GTK+ relases.
I strongly suggest to skip GTK+ 2.10.0 and 2.10.1 and jump directly to

hope an upload to experimental will be possible once DirectFB is
uploaded but I've not requested that yet
current cairo-directfb depends from DFB 0.9.25, so i guess this is solved ?
