Strace of Evolution Email

The only things I can think of that I did before this bug happened was send a
new e-mail edited it. I also sent an e-mail using Mozilla 1.4.1 by clicking on
a web page link to bring up Mozilla e-mail (I send email from it I don't
retrieve email from Mozilla I did not add a mail server only smtp server). I
also did edit the email I sent while using Evolution but my strace shows a
different shared object file to report an error.

Comment 2 Bart Martens 2004-03-18 05:49:41 UTC
Anthony, could you run these commands, and copy the output here please?

rpm -qf /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2
rpm -q evolution gtkhtml3
ls -l /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2*

The output that I got, is:

$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2
$ rpm -q evolution gtkhtml3
$ ls -l /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root    28 Jan 17 12:56

-rwxr-xr-x  1 root root 31784 Sep 26 02:36

[root@localhost fescue]# rpm -q prelink
[root@localhost fescue]# locate "#prelink#"
[root@localhost fescue]#

Comment 7 Bart Martens 2004-03-19 19:17:59 UTC
OK, this doesn't seem to be an evolution bug, rather a problem with
prelink. I'm not sure whether prelink did something wrong or only got
interrupted. Changing component from evolution to prelink.

You could try to fix the problem you're now having with evolution,
with these commands:

mv /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2.1.2.#prelink#.O0YsOG
chmod 755 /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2.1.2

Comment 8 Anthony D. Davis 2004-03-20 08:21:46 UTC
The command above did not work but there is also a
file that I did not move to /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2.1.2
should I do that? I only did this command below:
mv /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2.1.2.#prelink#.O0YsOG
chmod 755 /usr/lib/libgtkhtml-a11y-3.0.so.2.1.2

evolution is still not opening. It starts in the task bar then dies.

Comment 9 Bart Martens 2004-03-20 08:55:18 UTC
Anthony, let's continue this via e-mail and irc, to keep support
questions separated from bug documentation.
