yumex update yesterday killed my png recognition

Help! I did a yumex update yesterday and it killed off my Gnome and and I can't view any png files.

for example pup complains
(pup:5308): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory

(pup:5308): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading icon from file '/usr/share/pixmaps/password.png':
Couldn't recognize the image file format for file '/usr/share/pixmaps/password.png'

(pup:5308): GdkPixbuf-WARNING **: Cannot open pixbuf loader module file '/etc/gtk-2.0/gdk-pixbuf.loaders': No such file or directory

I was able to get kde going so I could post this plea for help. Any hits?
I tried a yum update, yum clean all with no luck.

sorry for the amateur post, I read a lot here but rarely post,
Pat Jr.

I had it worst with this Yumex. :-(

My add/remove software didn't work anymore and neither was the
software updater. I had to re-install Fedora 5 once again. It's only the 6th time in 2 weeks that I re-install the whole thing.

I'm not saying you should re-install. I'm new with Linux, and this stuff is solid on the Internet, but nowhere close to the user-friendliness of Microsoft.

What do you use to view png files? I am using gthumb (Gnome) and have no problems with png.

What you mean by a "yumex update?" Did you update yumex, or use yumex to update your system?

He propably used yumex to update the system. I'm having the very same problem here as well.
After the latest update today my system won't recognise neither png nor xpm files anymore.
Not mentioning the still broken evolution package, this renders the whole system useless for the moment.

I'm also havin the same problem. I update some packages using yumex yesterday and the png support is now broken.

Any ideas on how to fix this? As I don't really want to reinstall the whole thing.

I also have ubuntu on my laptop, it is SO EASY
Just click and it works. I have read posts befor about trouble with but 6.06 seems good so far.

When I had FC3 on the computer I am having trouble with now, it had it problems but this is the 2nd time an "update" in FC5 has almost killed the whole system.

Even so, I would still rather be running Linux, bsd, or something other then what have to use now. It's really a matter of choice and the glairing threat that I don't actually have one right now. It's getting VERY close now. It you don't need specific applications and can get by with FireFox and OpenOffice, you could just use Linux.

Thank You for your reply.
Good Luck.

Yes, it was a system update with yumex.
===
Yea, the evolution problem was a bummer, but before this problem it was working fine.

To get by for now, I was able to trick the gdm into working well enough to get logged in. At one point I did dump gdm and had kdm running and switched the sessions to kde, which I have installed too. I even tried xfc, but it is having a problem related to the png issue too.

At least kde is working. Maybe I should change my partitioning so my /home is in it's own partition? But LVM is make disk space problmes fade away.

Oh well, Good Luck to all,
Pat Jr.

My question is which repos do you have enabled when you do the update.
If you've enabled repos other than fedora's own, you shouldn't blame fedora.

Oh, I am so sorry. I am not pointing fingers. I was only looking for some hints about fixing my problem. Yes, I do have the extras, updates, and I did add the dries, oh and the macromedia one. I got these tips off a web site SF something. Looked like good advice and conservitive.

Thank You for your reply,

Well, have a look at /var/log/yum.log and see what got updated.
I run yumex once or twice a week and haven't seen this issue.
The only repos I have enabled are:
core
extras
livna
macromedia
and updates.

I only enable dries, freshrpms or atrpms when there's something particular I need to install or update.

I believe there was an issue brought to light the other week with yumex having a serious flaw that could potentially cause your symptoms. If you haven't done so already, I would suggest you boot into runlevel 3 and see if a standard yum update can fix your issues.

Also, stop using yumex, I think it's basically borked atm.

EDIT: Here's the thread http://fedoraforum.org/forum/showthr...ighlight=yumex I was mentioning

I have never heard yumex borking anything. Isn't it just a GUI shell sitting on top of yum to make things look pretty? It should be using yum for the underlying mechanism.
