Description Ronan 2003-10-30 21:17:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030922 Description of problem: (On a fresh install of RHEL WSv3) When Evolution is started by a non root user, by any method (i.e. /usr/bin/evolution, /usr/bin/evolution-1.4, or by selecting it through menus and task bar), startup errors happen and the initial setup wizard doesn't run. After the errors, evolution starts but with very reduced functionality - rather lean looking. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): evolution-1.4.5-1 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. start evolution by any method, as a standard user 2. 3. Actual Results: Startup errors. Expected Results: Evolution setup wizard should open, then evolution. Additional info: The following 4 windows appear when you start evolution, by any method: Window 1: "ERROR" Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Mail_ShellComponent : The error from the activation system is: Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0' Window 2: "ERROR" Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Addressbook_ShellComponent : The error from the activation system is: Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0' Window 3: "ERROR" Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Calendar_ShellComponent : The error from the activation system is: Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0' Window 4: "ERROR" Cannot activate component OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Summary_ShellComponent : The error from the activation system is: Unknown CORBA exception id: 'IDL:omg.org/CORBA/INV_OBJREF:1.0' In addition, when started from the command line, the following errors appear in the shell: (evolution:6438): evolution-shell-WARNING **: Could not start any startup wizard! (evolution:6438): evolution-shell-CRITICAL **: file e-shell-startup-wizard.c: line 809 (e_shell_startup_wizard_create): assertion `data->corba_wizard != CORBA_OBJECT_NIL' failed
Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2003-11-03 03:20:31 UTC
Can you verify the package installation with 'rpm -V evolution'? I haven't seen this behavior.
Comment 2 bug 2003-11-23 14:28:00 UTC
Not sure if it's related but I had errors starting _any_ apps upon first login to a fresh RHEL3 install as a non-root user. For example Mozilla appeared momentarily the first time I tried it then would not launch again. Same for any other apps. I logged out then logged in again and haven't seen any similar problems since.
Comment 3 Ronan 2003-11-26 14:11:42 UTC
(Sorry for the delay in updating) When I rebooted the system, it was fine. So in fact my problem was the same as you have described above - it seems to have errors only on the first boot.
Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-11-28 04:04:09 UTC
Have you done any other installs and seen it? I didn't see it on a quick test install I did here :/
Comment 5 Suzanne Hillman 2004-02-17 21:21:44 UTC
As it's been almost three months in the NEEDINFO state, I'm closing this. If it is still a problem, please reopen with more information.
