Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-15 21:56:02 UTC
What version of libgal2?  What kind of CPU?  Please can you ensure
libgal2-debuginfo is installed, and give another bt.  Thanks!

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2004-11-16 07:09:20 UTC
Regarding the versions:

but a very strange thing happended. Up2date updated gaim and installed
libsilc, I installed libgal2-debuginfo and evolution-debuginfo and
then it didn't happen anymore (meaning evolution came up fine).

Afterwards I uninstalled those 4 packages and it still worked (even
after reboot).

I have the feeling that one of the other packages (I don't remember
which ones) I installed from fc3 after the upgrade must have messed
things up a little and that the postinstall from gaim or libsilc
cleaned things up a little? It can't be ldconfig because I did that
one manually too...

Anyway it works now and I can't reproduce the problem anymore.

On a side note I noticed that I am still running the glib2 from FC2
because it has a higher version number than the one that comes with FC3:

The CPU is an AMD Athlon(tm) XP 2500+ by the way.

Sorry for the trouble... I leave you to close this bug...

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-16 17:15:26 UTC
Closing as WORKSFORME; to be reopened if it recurs.  Thanks.

Comment 5 Brett Porter 2004-11-25 23:31:58 UTC
I'm experiencing this just one day after installing FC3.
Reinstalling the evolution RPM worked.

Comment 6 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-29 21:35:59 UTC
So it's working for everyone now?

My current belief is that this is a duplicate of bug #140081

Comment 7 Brett Porter 2004-11-29 21:58:54 UTC
only worked by reinstalling evolution. I've actually switched to
Thunderbird, so I don't know if it will recur.

it could be related as I am also experiencing that bug - but that bug
still occurs after reinstalling evolution.
