Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 192928
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:33 EST
Description of problem:
Evince crashes at start-up with an undefined symbol lookup error
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.5.3-1
How reproducible: just invoke evince
Steps to Reproduce:
[otto@amelia mepvs]$ evince
evince: symbol lookup error: evince: undefined symbol: g_type_register_static_simple
Additional info: This was the only package from development I installed on my
fc5 machine. I tried installing also poppler, but to no aval. I even tried to
recompile the .src package, but the process ended with
reference to `g_type_register_static_simple'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
I suppose this is a simple case of dependency not listed correctly
Created attachment 129927 [details]
I recompiled poppler-0.5.2-1, and then I managed to recompile evince-0.5.3-1.
The problem is, it doesn't work: now, evince cannot grok the Type3 fonts
inserted by TeX: see the attached pdf file
Notice that xpdf works fine, as did evince-0.5.1-3.i386.rpm
I made other tests: the problem lies in poppler-0.5.2-1.
Indeed, with poppler-0.5.2, both versions of evince don't work as expected.
With poppler poppler-0.5.1-2, both versions of evince do work as expected.
