emacs fails to load
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:57 EST
Description of problem:
emacs fails to load due to ncurses lib problem
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run emacs from the command line
Error comes back
error while loading shared libraries: /usr/lib64/libncurses.so.5: file too short
emacs should start
Not tested under x86
This is related to bug #228891. Just remove /usr/lib*/libncurses.so.5 symlink,
and it should be ok.
This could be handled in a post script, but only upgrades from
ncurses-devel-5.5-25.20060715 and later are broken, I will see about that.
However, the emacs binary has RPATH /usr/lib64, that should be fixed.
Ok, the upgrade path won't be supported. Please remove the symlink manually.
