Description Aditya Kadambi 2007-11-10 20:57:06 EST
Description of problem:

Pulseaudio components "pavucontrol", "pavumeter" return a undefined symbol
error: The reported error is:

pavucontrol: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: 

pavumeter: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol:

Note the Pulseaudio daemon is running fine and sound is good on applications
such as MPlayer.

Output from ps on my system:
$ ps ax | grep -i pulseaudio

/usr/bin/pulseaudio --log-target=syslog

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

Pulseaudio -> 0.9.7-0.17.svn2
pavucontrol -> 0.9.5-0.4.svn2
pavumeter -> 0.9.3-0.2.svn2

How reproducible:

Reproducable everytime on my F8 x86_64 system. All utilities were installed from
standard repositories

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Just start the program on commandline.
Actual results:
pavucontrol: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol: 
pavumeter: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/libgtkmm-2.4.so.1: undefined symbol:

Expected results:

Uh, this is a strange bug, most likely in libgtkmm, not pavucontrol. Which
version of libgtkmm do you have installed?

The lines you pasted don't actually show the symbol name that is missing. Could
you please paste which one it is?

Comment 2 Aditya Kadambi 2007-11-11 15:57:53 EST
Yes, it does seem to be a gtkmm bug, or some sort of dependency. The version
installed on my F8 system is 2.12.0-1.fc8

Unfortunately, when I invoke pavucontrol, no symbol name is printed. I just get
the line I pasted.

Would you like me to look for any particular symbol in gtkmm? or anything else
that might help you debug the issue?

Comment 3 Aditya Kadambi 2007-11-14 20:08:32 EST
I ran into other issues with GNOME. I was asked to force reinstall GNOME
packages as the md5sum of the installed packages was not what rpm was expecting.
Fixed this issue.

This is resolved. Thanks for your help
