Description Jonathan Gardner 2005-11-27 00:45:02 EST
Description of problem:
On a fresh install of FC4, I ran "yum -y install gnucash". It seemed to install
without any trouble. However, when I go to run gnucash, it fails with an error:

$ gnucash
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 324 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run gnucash from terminal
Actual results:
Gdk-ERROR **: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
  serial 324 error_code 8 request_code 146 minor_code 3

Expected results:
gnucash should start.
Comment 1 Jonathan Gardner 2005-12-13 12:13:38 EST
I noticed that it works if I am running GNOME, but produces the error above in KDE.
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-01-09 13:43:13 EST
I'm assuming this persists with 1.8.12 from the updates dir?
Comment 3 Jonathan Gardner 2006-01-28 13:18:44 EST
Yes. I just upgraded to 1.8.12 and I see the same error.

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-07 14:10:59 EDT
This works for me with 2.0.1 in rawhide; it presumably should work with the
updates-testing gnucash as well.
Comment 6 james 2006-08-10 01:31:31 EDT
Still, now a dependency issue:

$ gnucash
gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libguile.so.17: cannot open
shared object file: No such file or directory

$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/libguile.so.12

Revise the guile package?  or the gnucash package?
Comment 7 Bill Nottingham 2006-08-10 09:10:51 EDT
Eep, I didn't mean to imply that the FC-5 updates-testing gnucash would work on
FC4; you'll probably need to rebuild the SRPM.
