Description Arnaud Gomes-do-Vale 2009-04-22 05:59:00 EDT
Description of problem:

heartbeat-gui is missing dependencies. It won't run unless you manually install pygtk2-libglade and dejavu-fonts.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:
1. start from clean install of CentOS,
2. run hb_gui

Actual results:

Without libglade:

[root@rose ~]# hb_gui
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/bin/hb_gui", line 41, in ?
    import gtk,, gobject
ImportError: No module named glade

Without dejavu-fonts:

[root@rose ~]# hb_gui
No fonts found; this probably means that the fontconfig
library is not correctly configured. You may need to
edit the fonts.conf configuration file. More information
about fontconfig can be found in the fontconfig(3) manual
page and on

Expected results:

hb_gui starts properly.
Comment 1 BJ Dierkes 2009-04-22 19:29:17 EDT
The main heartbeat package is also missing a BuildRequires for zlib-devel.

gcc -shared  .libs/zlib.o -Wl,--whole-archive ../../../replace/.libs/libreplace.a -Wl,--no-whole-archive  -lz -lbz2 -lxml2 -lc -lpam -lrt -ldl /usr/lib64/  -m64 -mtune=generic -m64 -mtune=generic -Wl,-soname -Wl, -o .libs/
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/ when searching for -lz
/usr/bin/ld: skipping incompatible /usr/lib/libz.a when searching for -lz
/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lz
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
gmake[4]: *** [] Error 1

Did you install heartbeat from CentOS or from EPEL? 
Note that there are CentOS packages in the extras repo. 

rpm -qa | grep heartbeat 

returns what?
I will look at duplicating this here. 

> The main heartbeat package is also missing a BuildRequires for zlib-devel.

Odd. This gets pulled in on a mock build here. 
I can add it in easily enough tho.
Comment 3 Kevin Fenzi 2009-04-24 18:54:31 EDT
I can confirm that pygtk2-libglade is needed. 
On the font it doesn't seem to need dejavu, it just needs any font I think. Not sure how to specify this... will dig into the glade and see if I can see what it's looking for exactly.
Comment 4 Kevin Fenzi 2009-05-05 18:39:28 EDT
So, to clarify, what fonts packages did you have installed? any? 
I'm not sure how to express the font dependency here... it's basically happy to use most anything it can find. ;(
Comment 5 Kevin Fenzi 2009-06-12 13:31:02 EDT
Can you please test:

It should fix all the issues except the font one. 
(Not at all sure how to address that one). 

let me know if the other items are fixed.
Comment 6 Arnaud Gomes-do-Vale 2009-06-23 11:30:51 EDT
On a host with the font issue:

[root@inpace ~]# rpm -qa|grep -i font

So I have at least basic fonts installed.
Comment 7 Kevin Fenzi 2009-06-28 15:30:56 EDT
Can you install xorg-x11-fonts-base and see if that gets it working? 
Also, can you confirm the other issues are fixed?
Comment 8 Kevin Fenzi 2009-07-11 00:25:21 EDT
Any chance to try the item from comment #7?
Comment 9 Arnaud Gomes-do-Vale 2009-07-11 05:51:45 EDT
No, xorg-x11-fonts-base is not enough, even in addition to what I had previously installed, I still get the same error message about missing fonts.
Comment 10 Kevin Fenzi 2009-09-26 17:05:26 EDT
Can you try 'bitmap-fonts' ?

I will try and setup a minimal install here were I can try and track this down more closely so I don't have to keep bugging you. :)
