Description of problem:
After upgrading to Fedora Core 2 Test 2's gnucash and
dependents, running gnucash fails with

ERROR: Could not find slib/require.scm in  ("/usr/share/guile"
"/usr/share/gnucash/guile-modules" "/usr/share/gnucash/scm" ""
"/usr/share/guile/site" "/usr/share/guile/1.6" "/usr/share/guile" ".")

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gnucash

Additional info:

The packages that I have installed for 1.8.8-5 are
gnucash-1.8.8-5.i386.rpm guile-1.6.4-9.2.1.i386.rpm
g-wrap-1.3.4-5.1.i386.rpm umb-scheme-3.2-32.i386.rpm
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 11:37:27 EST
Works for me. What does 'rpm -V' of the various packages say?
Comment 2 Jan Pazdziora 2004-03-30 11:45:14 EST
rpm -V guile umb-scheme g-wrap gnucash

is clean, no errors. Google finds a couple of hits related to
Guile, Scheme and slib. But nothing is really fitting.

What other packages should I check?

BTW, the slib/require.scm is in /usr/share/umb-scheme/slib/require.scm
here. If I cd /usr/share/umb-scheme (as the error message says it also
looks in "."), the error message changes to

$ cd /usr/share/umb-scheme/
$ pwd
$ gnucash
ERROR: In procedure substring:
ERROR: Argument 3 out of range: -1

The file is

$ ls -la /data/usr_share/umb-scheme/slib/require.scm
-rw-r--r--    1 root     root        11469 Nov 27  2002

-- how about yours?

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 11:49:33 EST
Can you attach the strace of running gnucash?
Comment 4 Jan Pazdziora 2004-03-30 11:52:41 EST

Strace when running gnucash from random directory

The first attachment is when the ERROR: Could not find slib/require.scm in 
("/usr/share/guile" "/usr/share/gnucash/guile-modules" "/usr/share/gnucash/scm"
"" "/usr/share/guile/site" "/usr/share/guile/1.6" "/usr/share/guile" ".")
error shows.
Comment 5 Jan Pazdziora 2004-03-30 11:54:09 EST
Created attachment 98972 [details]
Strace running gnucash from /usr/share/umb-scheme

The second shows gnucash running from /usr/share/umb-scheme directory,
where the slib/require.scm resides.
Comment 6 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 11:55:30 EST
You don't have a /usr/share/guile/slib/require.scm?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 11:56:17 EST
More exactly:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               27 Mar  4 09:49
/usr/share/guile/slib -> ../../share/umb-scheme/slib
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root    root               30 Mar  4 09:49
/usr/share/guile/slibcat -> ../../share/umb-scheme/slibcat

Do these not resolve in your layout?
Comment 8 Jan Pazdziora 2004-03-30 12:08:28 EST
That did the trick. The links were there but since my /usr/share is on
a different filesystem, they did not resolve to the proper target.
Changing them to absolute links makes gnucash behave well.

Thank you for your prompt help.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2004-03-30 17:53:49 EST
No problem. Closing as I believe this is working as expected.
