You must have deleted
If you have deleted the version of the base library that Gorm was linked with, you must either rebuild Gorm to work with the new version, or restore the old one.
Just for clarification ... when I say 'rebuild Gorm' I mean that any binaries linked with the base library need to be relinked with the new one. That is at least the main Gorm executable, but may also be the palettes it loads (these contain code which may have been linked with the library). The simplest way to do it is a 'make distclean' followed by a complete rebuild of Gorm.

Shure. I completely rebuild gnustep (I use Gentoo and its package management and that builds things in a temp directory and then moves it to / . It also tracks all files related to one "package". After moving the install dir to / in deletes any
other file that doesn't show up in the new "package".
I now made a distclean on svn-code of Gorm and rebuild that again. The error
didn't change.

Well, there are only two ways you could get that error ...
1. You are linking with something which is linked with the old library
2. You are not running the executable that you think you are

I guess cause 2 is easiest to check ... you launch the program by absolute path

cause 1 means that you didn't really upgrade everything and have some old versions of things around linked to the old base library, and the build of Gorm is picking up those old versions for some reason. I guess the gui library and the backend libraries are the likely causes, but there may be something else I don't know about.
