Are you running in GNOME or KDE?  

Comment 3 Elton Woo 2003-07-28 22:03:34 UTC
The failure occurs in the Gnome desktop with Severn. Have not yet tried under KDE

Comment 4 Jeremy Katz 2003-07-28 22:08:49 UTC
Hmmm, and other GNOME apps start correctly?

Does anything odd show up in the terminal if you try to start evolution from there?

Comment 5 Elton Woo 2003-07-28 22:34:50 UTC
when started from a console prompt the same thing occurs. (See attachment). The
actual error pop-up is created as four instances stacked up on each other. The
console output is therefore:

$ evolution
(evolution:23620): evolution-shell-WARNING **: Could not start any startup wizard!
(evolution:23620): evolution-shell-CRITICAL **: file e-shell-startup-wizard.c:
line 781 (e_shell_startup_wizard_create): assertion `data->corba_wizard !=

error dialog

Note the error dialog actually occurs *four* times, and has to be clicked that
many times for the splash screen to go away.

Comment 7 Jeremy Katz 2003-10-06 20:19:14 UTC
Do you still see this with test2?

Comment 8 Behdad Esfahbod 2003-11-05 13:59:23 UTC
I remember having the same problem with test2, but feel like it's gone
in test3.  Would someone verify?

Comment 9 Elton Woo 2003-11-06 18:43:20 UTC
This is fixed in Fedora Core Test 3, and (of course) in Fedora Core 1.
I respectfully submit that this bug be marked as closed.
