Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 122948
Evolution "Cannot access the Ximian Evolution Shell" x86_64 evolution-1.4.6-2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
After upgrading several packages in the devel tree, evolution failed
A dialog box "Cannot access the Ximian Evolution Shell" was displayed.
Trying to run evolution-wombat generated:
wombat-Message: Starting wombat
wombat-pas-Message: Error registering the PAS factory: not listed
wombat-Message: main(): could not initialize Wombat service "PAS";
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: Always if the account had previously run evolution.
Never with new accounts.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start evolution
2. watch it fail with the above messages
backing up to evolution-1.4.6-1 did not solve the problem - though it
worked in the past.
Bug also filed by mistake at
work around was to remove files and directories from /tmp. For
instance with user test:
No problems after that.
Has this problem recurred, or should I close this bug?
I've since then moved on to evolution 1.5. The bug is not being
reproduced at this time.
Thanks - perhaps a stale lockfile? Not much more that can be done
with this unless it recurs for someone. Resolving as WONTFIX here and
