Hi folks,

Using aptitude of the gcc-3.4 pool I got an error message

aptitude: Symbol `_ZTIN4SigC6ObjectE' has different size in shared object, consider re-linking

Rebuilding aptitude did not work: The new binary died with a
core dump immediately.

This sounds strange. I just created a fresh chroot from the gcc-3.4
archive with debootstrap and aptitude seems to run fine from that.

How did you install? Could this be caused by mixing packages from the
gcc-3.3 and the gcc-3.4 archives? In this case maybe 'apt-get install --reinstall libsigc++-1.2-5c102' could help.

I did an upgrade from pure64. (A fresh installation did not
work for me, see my other EMail on this list.)

The suggested reinstall was not possible:

  # apt-get install --reinstall libsigc++-1.2-5c102
  Reading Package Lists... Done
  Building Dependency Tree... Done
  Reinstallation of libsigc++-1.2-5c102 is not possible, it cannot be downloaded.
  0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 2 not upgraded.

(The 2 packages not upgraded are libtiff4 and libtiff4-dev.)

But I could download it from
and manually install it. Now the problem seems to be gone.

Why doesn't aptitude use libsigc++ 2.0?

Probably its unrelated, but when I tried to reinstall libsigc++
within aptitude I got an internal error saying
