So the file I need is gtk2-2.0.5-2.rpm and that's it? I'm away from my home
computer right now, but I think I tried this file last night already. I'll give
it a try again.

Teach a man to fish and you feed him for life . . . . so how would one know how
to get this gtk file?

Honestly, I would give it a try because most problems with gcc 2->3 were
with C++ and GTK2 is written in C. If the package wants to overwrite files
from other packages, give up. If the only problems are with dependencies,
maybe it can be solved.

But first : if you're using 8.0, why don't you take the GTK2 package made
for SuSE 8.0 and provided by SuSE? You can find it at

If this can spare you a headache or three...
