Description Joel Uckelman 2007-08-12 21:47:06 UTC
Description of problem:

gnucash fails to start due to a shared-library problem.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run gnucash from a terminal.
Actual results:

[uckelman@localhost ~]$ gnucash
gnucash-bin: error while loading shared libraries: libgncmod-engine.so: cannot
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Expected results:

gnucash should start.

Additional info:

The requested library, libgncmod-engine.so, does exist on my system, in

What does 'rpm -q --qf %{ARCH}\n gnucash ' say?

Comment 2 Joel Uckelman 2007-08-13 09:36:46 UTC
I get:


(probably need to quote '%{ARCH}\n' to get the \n to be a newline, heh)

I had the i386 package installed along side the x86_64 one; the same thing
happened when I started gnucash then, as well.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2007-08-29 17:21:24 UTC
Does it verify correctly?

Comment 4 Joel Uckelman 2007-08-31 10:08:35 UTC
Here's the relevant output from 'rpm -V gnucash':

S.5....T /usr/bin/gnc-fq-check
S.5....T /usr/bin/gnc-fq-helper
S.5....T /usr/bin/gnc-fq/update
S.5....T /usr/bin/gnucash
S.5....T /usr/bin/gnucash-valgrind
S.5....T /usr/libexec/gnucash/overrides/gnucash-env

Just to be safe, I uninstalled gnucash and gnucash-doc, and then reinstalled
them. , after which verify produced the same results. I guess the size and MD5
differ on these because of prelinking?

After reinstalling I was able to run gnucash. I can't fathom why it worked after
the second reinstall but not after the first. I do now get the following warning
on starting gnucash, though:

gnc.bin-Message: main: binreloc relocation support was disabled at configure time.

Anyway, the problem is gone for me now, though I would like to know what caused it.

Assigning as a dup of what appears to be the same problem.
