Description Gustavo Maciel Dias Vieira 2006-06-07 13:03:36 UTC
Description of problem:
After the update to rrdtool-1.0.50-3.fc5, the munin system monitoring
application stopped working in my FC5 box. It fails with the following error:

/usr/share/munin/munin-update [horatio]: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: rrd_clear_error
/usr/bin/perl: symbol lookup error:
undefined symbol: rrd_clear_error

It worked up to rrdtool-1.0.50-1.fc5.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run munin.

Reassigning to Jarod, since he is the one who made that update, and probably the
new maintainer of the package (Jarod: You can edit the owners file whenever you

Gustavo: Can you try rebuilding -3 without the --disable-static line (you'll
also have to re-add *.a to the %files list)? I'm guessing that might be the
culprit. There's some wonkiness w/rrdtool and its static libs at times, but
we're not supposed to package static libs anymore.


If that's not it, there are one or two other potential culprits we can look at.
If that *is* it, I'll have to dig into why the static libs are needed. May be
that RRDs.so is what's needing the static libs...

Matthias: I actually made the change to the owners file yesterday afternoon, but
I guess the changes weren't sucked into bugzilla just yet. :)

Okay, something wonky w/the RRDs.so build. Can't use --disable-static for some
reason, so I'm respinning w/o that configure option and simply excluding the
static libs from the resulting package, and everything appears to be fine
(installed and verified w/munin on my own system here). Look for a 1.0.50-4.fc5
package coming shortly.

Note that 1.2.13-3 in rawhide works perfectly fine w/--disable-static, but the
1.0.x code isnt' being maintained anymore. Ah, the fun of hacks...

Thanks Jarod! I was going to try rebuilding it now. It's fantastic I won't have
to! :)
