How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. prelink -avRmf
2. start evolution


Actual Results:  evolution does not start.

Expected Results:  should open the main window
Comment 1 Dumitru Ciobarcianu 2004-01-29 03:51:34 EST
rebooting with "selinux=0", prelink again, ldconfig.

starting evolution produces an crash, then nothing (the binary just

evolution --force-shutdown ; evolution 
and evolution just starts.
hmm, odd.

I really don't think this problem is specific to prelink....
I've rebuilt the evolution-1.5.3-1 from srpm on my fc1 box as well,
and prelink doesn't seem to be a factor in how well evo performs there

I'm going to mark this as a NEEDSINFO bug, hopefully you can narrow down
the problem or get some other people to confirm it consistantly. 

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-01-29 10:52:22 EST
If you can attach to it with gdb when it's hung (especially with
-debuginfo packages installed) that would help a lot.
Comment 5 John Thacker 2006-10-29 16:10:18 EST
Closing per previous comment and lack of response.  FC3 and FC4 are supported
for security fixes only by Fedora Legacy.  If this is a security bug, please
reopen.  Please retest against FC5 or FC6 and set the version appropriately if
the bug still occurs in one of those still supported versions of Fedora Core.
