seamonkey-1.0.8-x (critical) update prevents evolution from starting
Last modified: 2014-01-21 17:57:22 EST
The seamonkey-1.0.8-x (critical) update prevents evolution from starting.
The following error occurs:
(evolution:32071): evolution-smime-WARNING **: Failed all methods for
Trying to build evolution from the SRPM also does not work as the path for nspr
(mozilla 37:1.8) is not the same as the path for nspr (seamonkey 1.0.8).
Using the patch attached to this bug:
I was able to start Evolution building ... whether it fixes this bug, I will
report when it finishes.
rebuilding evolution did not help, the RPM produced built against seamonkey
1.0.8 is identical to the one produced against mozilla
There is a fix that works as a work around until another solution is done, which
list to create this symbolic link:
ln -s firefox-188.8.131.52/libfreeb13.so .
Having libfreeb13.so in /usr/lib allows evolution to start ... removing it
prevents it from starting.
This fix is from the centos bugs tracker and mailing list:
I have exactly the same issue. After the latest rhn update evolution failed to
start. I did as suggested by Johnny (thanks), and got evolution to start. This
is very urgent, as I am sure many other people are running into the same issue,
and are completely lost as I!
OK ... that file name should have a "lowercase L" (l) not a one (1) ...
ln -s firefox-184.108.40.206/libfreebl3.so

libfreebl3.so is new to NSS3.11 and it is dlopened by libsoftokn3.so. Therefore
the seamonkey-nss library should be shipping libfreebl3.so in /usr/lib (and not
in the seamonkey main rpm). We are therefore respinning seamonkey packages to
replace the current erratum packages and will expidite them through QE and
FYI: This bug also breaks gaim
