Description Mary Ellen Foster 2007-06-13 14:49:39 EDT
Description of problem:
Most of the koffice components in the new updates-testing package exit 
immediately when they're run. The only one that starts up properly seems to 
be "kugar". The versions from the base Fedora install (1.6.2-3.fc7) work fine; 
this is definitely a regression in 1.6.3-1.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
koffice-suite-1.6.3-1.fc7

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "kspread", "kpresenter", "kword", "krita", "karbon", ...
  
Actual results:
Command prompt returns immediately, program does not start (no error message, 
no process running in "ps", nothing).

Expected results:
Requested program should start
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2007-06-13 15:00:57 EDT
Odd, WORKSFORME.  ???

Does:
$ rpm -Va koffice-*
report anything?
Comment 2 Mary Ellen Foster 2007-06-13 18:18:59 EDT
I just tried on another Fedora 7 machine and the same thing happened. The 
rpm -V command didn't return anything
Comment 3 Gianluca Varisco 2007-06-13 18:26:43 EDT
I can confirm what Mary Ellen Foster reported; kugar is the only app that starts
correctly.

Regarding " rpm -Va koffice-* ", it didn't return anything. If needed, I can
provide only the output of 'strace $APP'.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2007-06-15 08:27:43 EDT
What arch you folks running?  i386, x86_64 (or ppc)?
Comment 5 Gianluca Varisco 2007-06-15 08:33:38 EDT
Rex, I'm running i386.
Comment 6 Mary Ellen Foster 2007-06-15 08:42:22 EDT
i386 as well on both machines I tested this on.
Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2007-06-15 12:00:09 EDT
confirmed, looks like our koffice build was done against kdelibs-3.5.7, and
exibits this problem on machines with kde < 3.5.7.

I'll withdraw the update, and rebuild with Requires: kdelibs >= 3.5.7.
Comment 8 Gianluca Varisco 2007-06-15 12:04:02 EDT
I tried too and with kdelibs 3.5.7 it works.
Comment 9 Mary Ellen Foster 2007-06-15 12:05:42 EDT
Where are you getting 3.5.7 from? Rawhide? That doesn't seem to be in 
updates-testing yet ...
Comment 10 Gianluca Varisco 2007-06-15 12:08:32 EDT
Yes, at the moment it's only available in Koji (
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=8241 ).
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2007-06-15 12:18:20 EDT
building now...

* Fri Jun 15 2007 Rex Dieter <rdieter[AT]fedoraproject.org>
1.6.2-2
- Require version of kdelibs used to build against (#244091)
- -suite: use versioned Requires
