some more reportd from my today's tests i hope may be useful: if i
compile a simple "ghello" application against official/my own libs then
i test the so ontained binary using libraries from
libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb ghello runs correctly.
If i pack ghello inside a ghello.tgz and include it inside the miniiso
then, whin i try to run ghello from inside thw miniiso i get the error

Today i unpacked libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb_188.8.131.52-3_i386.udeb contsnt
inside /gtkudeb and ,as root i did
I have also run some tests. These tests were done:
- using the last frontend Attilio made available;
- using Alastair's libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb
- without the libc that is currently in the root tarball
1. Without library reduction
I created a modified mklibs that does most of its normal work, but does
not actually reduce libraries (instead it just copies them).
This resulted in a working frontend.
2. With library reduction, but copying some full libraries back in
I did this by adding something in the Makefile that copies an original
library into the tree after the library reduction step.
- only libc added back in, gives improvement but frontend still crashes;
- both libc and libm added back in, gives working frontend.
In all my tests strange fonts are still not shown.
(the same error applies to functions getresuid, getresgid, getgid, setpgid).
Since it seemed to me symbols were missing from libc i included the
following (never really called) funcion inside gtk.c to see if this time
the missing symbols were force-included inside libc
this time previously missing symbols were included since ghello returned
with the following error message (strace output)
so , it seems sometimes libc do not contains some needed functions and
you have to explicitly force symbols to be included inside it.
Another test i've done: as i told you before i've unpacked
libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb inside /gtkudeb on my debian system and gtk.so
ran fine togheter with those libraries no matter what set of libraries
was compiled against.
Then i tried to unpack inside /gtkudeb also the contents of
libdirectfb-0.9-22-udeb_0.9.22-7.1_i386.udeb so that libraries from that
udeb were used instead of those from libdirectfb-0.9-22.deb installed on
The gtk.so crashed as any other gtkdfb app: it seems that
libgtk+2.0-directfb0-udeb behave badly if used togheter, any idea why
davide also told me that fjp has discovered gtk.so works fine with
standard udebs if ibs are not reduced: this is really good news.
