Description Matthias Clasen 2007-04-23 14:58:34 UTC
/usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so is not sufficiently linked:

[mclasen@dhcp83-33 ~]$ ldd -r /usr/lib/libexchange-storage-1.2.so
undefined symbol: e_passwords_remember_password
undefined symbol: e_passwords_get_password     
undefined symbol: e_passwords_forget_password  
undefined symbol: e_passwords_add_password     
undefined symbol: e_passwords_ask_password

*** Bug 237488 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-24 18:47:53 UTC
A circular build dependency is causing this:

-libexchange-storage lives in the "servers" directory, and depends on
 libedataserverui (containing the missing symbols).

- libedataserverui depends on libebook.

- libebook depends on libcamel.

- libcamel lives in the "camel" directory, and so does libcamelgroupwise.

- libcamelgroupwise depends on libegroupwise.

- libegroupwise lives in the "servers" directory.

This is a real gordian knot.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-08-12 18:46:16 UTC
Still the case in current rawhide.

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-12 22:00:39 UTC
Ross suggested moving libexchange-storage to evolution-exchange in [1], which
would break the dependency cycle and allow things to be linked properly. 
Upstream seems agreeable, but it looks like this will be a post-GNOME 2.20 effort.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2008-02-13 02:28:35 UTC
Bumping version to Rawhide; no movement on this yet, unfortunately.

Comment 6 Bug Zapper 2008-11-26 01:53:16 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2009-06-29 02:16:50 UTC
Moving this to Rawhide.  Wrote a patch today to move all remaining Exchange bits in E-D-S to Evolution-Exchange.  We'll see how it plays out.

Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2009-10-23 16:26:31 UTC
We finally got all the Exchange bits in E-D-S and Evolution moved over to Evolution-Exchange.  That eliminates the circular dependency described in comment #2.  This will land in post-F12 Rawhide, so closing as RAWHIDE.
