Description Hacksaw 2003-11-12 15:12:13 EST
Description of problem:
This was true under RH 9 as well. Trying to start any kde application
fails because it can't contact a dcop server. Trying to start a dcop
yields this error:
dcop: error while loading shared libraries: libpq.so.2: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory

Sure enough, my system doesn't have this lib, it has version 3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Name        : kdelibs                      Relocations: (not relocateable)
Version     : 3.1.4                             Vendor: Red Hat, Inc.
Release     : 4                             Build Date: Fri 17 Oct
2003 03:26:04 PM EDT

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start any kde program, for example kword. Or try to start dcop.

Why in the world is this linked against the postgres libs, anyway?
Comment 1 Ngo Than 2003-11-12 16:04:36 EST
Hm, something is broken on your system. kdelibs and kdebase is not
linked against postgresql-libs! 

I cannot reproduce this problem here. please reopen it if you could
give  me a better testcase to reproduce this problem.

Comment 3 Hacksaw 2003-11-12 16:47:34 EST

LD_LIBRARY_PATH contained a reference to a dev version of Qt 3.

Thanks anyway.
