Description Eskil Bylund 2006-02-21 07:20:47 EST
Description of problem:
When starting gnucash, I get the following error:

/usr/share/guile/1.6/srfi/srfi-13.scm:159:1: In procedure dynamic-link in
expression (load-extension "libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1" "scm_init_srfi_13"):
/usr/share/guile/1.6/srfi/srfi-13.scm:159:1: file:
"libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1", message: "libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"

> ll /usr/lib/libguile-srfi-*

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-21 12:11:03 EST
Does installing guile-devel fix it?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-21 12:14:06 EST
This code is all within guile, so presumably the .so files need to be moved from
guile-devel to guile itself. Probably some 'feature' of libguile-ltdl.
Comment 3 Eskil Bylund 2006-02-21 15:12:42 EST
Yes, installing guile-devel fixes this.

I've got the following versions on FC4, where it works. Perhaps it could help
narrowing the bug down...

Comment 4 Eskil Bylund 2006-02-21 15:14:21 EST
Sorry, that was supposed to be:
Comment 5 Phil Anderson 2006-02-25 19:14:21 EST
I had fixed it by:
cd /usr/lib
ln -s libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so.1 libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so

Comment 8 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-27 22:00:58 EST
This appears to be because of guile's use of libtool to load its modules - you
need either the .so or the .la files in the main package.
Comment 9 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-27 22:20:32 EST
Easily reproduced outside of gnucash with:

# guile -c "(use-modules (srfi srfi-13)) (exit ((lambda () 0)))"
ERROR: In procedure dynamic-link:
ERROR: file: "libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1", message:
"libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file
or directory"
Comment 10 Miroslav Lichvar 2006-02-28 04:24:08 EST
Ok, I moved the .la files to the main package. Thanks for the help. Fixed in
