To partially answer my own question, it appears that
introduced in glib2 library, starting from version 2.14, while my
CentOS installation has version 2.12.3-2. Now, it turns out that glib2
depends on glibc, gamin and libselinux, my current versions being
0.1.7-8 and 1.33.4-5 respectively.
So, to reformulate the question: is there a clean way to upgrade glib2
2.12 to 2.14 without having to upgrade glibc and friends (and glibc has
lot* of friends installed on the system :-) ...).
This is a desktop machine which is not quite important for production
I wouldn't mind customizing it if it isn't too much hassle.
I am open to suggestions on what to do ---
* update glib2 and possibly glibc and its dependencies?
* temper with the cairo-dock source to remove references to new
make it compatible with glib2 v2.12 (this is possible, but not easy)?
* wait for CentOS 5.3 hoping that it has more recent glib2?
* give up?
Appreciate any help!
