Description Dave Malcolm 2004-11-30 21:57:59 UTC
In evolution-2.0.2: addressbook/gui/component/Makefile.am uses LDAP_CFLAGS and

(this is to allow automated detection of the correct configuration of the
addressbook LDAP backend, which is then used by evolution-data-server)

from config.log:
LDAP_LIBS=' -lldap -llber -lresolv -lnsl'

We link dynamically with OpenLDAP; we already have a BuildRequires, but not a

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

How reproducible:

Comment 1 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-30 22:23:58 UTC
ldd /usr/lib/evolution/2.0/components/libevolution-addressbook.so | grep ldap
        libldap-2.2.so.7 => /usr/lib/libldap-2.2.so.7 (0x00b71000)
rpm -qf /usr/lib/libldap-2.2.so.7

ldd /usr/lib/evolution/2.0/components/libevolution-addressbook.so | grep lber
        liblber-2.2.so.7 => /usr/lib/liblber-2.2.so.7 (0x00722000)
rpm -qf /usr/lib/liblber-2.2.so.7

ldd /usr/lib/evolution/2.0/components/libevolution-addressbook.so | grep resolv
        libresolv.so.2 => /lib/libresolv.so.2 (0x0072a000)
ldd /usr/lib/evolution/2.0/components/libevolution-addressbook.so | grep nsl
        libnsl.so.1 => /lib/libnsl.so.1 (0x00c4b000)
These are provided by glibc

So we have a runtime requirement on openldap; otherwise the addressbook
component can't be loaded.

Comment 2 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-30 22:32:30 UTC
(I saw this when someone managed to "rpm -e cyrus-sasl" and then the addressbook
component stopped appearing in Evolution; cyrus-sasl is a requirement for
openldap, hence fixing this should stop that recurring)

Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-30 22:37:19 UTC
Adding to RHEL4 RC blocker, since without this being fixed it's possible to
install evolution in such a way that the addressbook can't be used.

Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2004-11-30 22:53:04 UTC
Hmmm... now I'm not sure how the situation arising in comment #2 arose (this was
on mclasen's machine)

The evolution package already depends on the specific .so files:
libldap-2.2.so.7 and liblber-2.2.so.7, so there's already an implicit direct
dependency on the openldap package, which should have thus created an indirect
implicit dependency on cyrus-sasl.

(adding mclasen to cc)

Comment 6 Dave Malcolm 2004-12-01 02:20:12 UTC
(I also added bug #140127 in response to the incident in comment #2,
and promptly forgot about it; that bug has the specific error message)

Comment 7 Dave Malcolm 2004-12-01 17:51:56 UTC
OK - according to Matthias this was only seen once, and on a machine
running Rawhide; we believe it was a bug in RPM/yum since yum was
particularly unstable at the time (python 2.3->2.4 migrations etc); it
appears that he was able to erroneously install evolution without

It looks like the dependencies are correct, so I'm going to mark this
