Description Ottavio G. Rizzo 2006-05-24 06:10:36 EDT
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:
1. evince
Actual results:

[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 

/usr/lib/gcc/i386-redhat-linux/4.1.0/../../../libpoppler-glib.so: undefined
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

Comment 2 Ottavio G. Rizzo 2006-05-24 09:17:15 EDT
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
Comment 3 Ottavio G. Rizzo 2006-05-24 09:27:12 EDT
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.
