Description Karsten Hopp 2006-07-10 09:24:38 EDT
Note: ldd can't handle dlopen'ed dependent libraries and these unresolved symbols
might be resolved by those. But this needs to be checked.
Reproducer: rpm -ql <packagename>| grep lib.*so | xargs ldd -r

undefined symbol: e_passwords_get_password      (/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so)
undefined symbol: e_passwords_forget_password   (/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so)
undefined symbol: e_passwords_ask_password      (/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so)
undefined symbol: e_passwords_add_password      (/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so)
undefined symbol: e_passwords_remember_password (/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so)
Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2006-09-18 15:37:06 EDT
Looks like a typo in evolution-data-server/servers/exchange/storage/Makefile.am.
Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2006-09-18 16:39:07 EDT
Actually it's much nastier than a simple typo.

The undefined symbols are provided by libedataserverui, but libexchange-storage
cannot link with that library or else it introduces a cyclic library dependency
and the build fails.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-01-02 11:14:17 EST
Closing as UPSTREAM since there is an equivalent upstream bug report.  I will
continue to track the problem there.  Please refer to [1] for further updates.
