Gnucash does not start
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:24 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"):
"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-*
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Does installing guile-devel fix it?
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.
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...
Sorry, that was supposed to be:
I had fixed it by:
ln -s libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so.1 libguile-srfi-srfi-13-14-v-1.so

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.
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
Ok, I moved the .la files to the main package. Thanks for the help. Fixed in
