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 17:11:03 UTC
Does installing guile-devel fix it?

Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2006-02-21 17:14:06 UTC
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 20:12:42 UTC
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 20:14:21 UTC
Sorry, that was supposed to be:

Comment 5 Phil Anderson 2006-02-26 00:14:21 UTC
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 2006-02-28 03:00:58 UTC
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 2006-02-28 03:20:32 UTC
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 09:24:08 UTC
Ok, I moved the .la files to the main package. Thanks for the help. Fixed in
