Please build this http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=107036 for the EL-5 branch and at least send it to epel-testing.
Comment 2 Adrian Reber 2009-06-26 05:55:10 EDT
I would first like to try if a recompile fixes it. Could you test it?
Comment 3 Jonathan Steffan 2009-07-04 14:52:48 EDT
I'll try a rebuild on Monday. I doubt it will fix the issue, however.
Comment 4 Adrian Reber 2009-07-04 17:01:36 EDT
A rebuild is available at:

/usr/bin/sm: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/jabberd/storage_db.so: undefined symbol: ser_string_set

Please submit an update to epel-testing for the new build. Thanks.

I am sorry. But I do not understand what this means. Does it mean that the new version still does not work?

> Please submit an update to epel-testing for the new build. Thanks.

I have tried jabberd-2.2.5-2.el5.x86_64 and it works without a problem.
Comment 7 Jonathan Steffan 2009-07-13 14:26:01 EDT
The rebuild does not work for us, no.
Comment 8 Christoph Sievers 2009-07-16 19:14:00 EDT
move sm to sm.orig and create a new sm that looks like this:

exec /usr/bin/sm.orig

yes - it's ugly.

Comment 9 Adrian Reber 2009-07-17 06:03:54 EDT
Ah, good point. Which backends are you (original reporter) using. I have done my tests with PAM and BDB. Maybe that is the reason I cannot reproduce it.
Comment 10 Devan Goodwin 2009-07-22 11:57:50 EDT
We've run into this problem with Fedora 11 i386, jabberd-

Any chance we could get a 2.2.8 rebuild for F11? 

Our driver is "db".
Comment 11 Devan Goodwin 2009-07-22 12:03:56 EDT
Sorry scratch that, just saw that there is already a build in updates-testing for Fedora 11. Testing now and will add karma in koji if all is well.
Comment 12 Devan Goodwin 2009-07-22 12:42:21 EDT
Rebuild of 2.2.8 has been submitted for EL5 as well for those who are interested, should land in updates-testing soon.

Comment 13 Noa Resare 2009-09-23 04:18:20 EDT
with the jabberd-2.2.8-2.el5 available in EPEL for el5, using the db backend I can not reproduce this. I think it is safe to close this as FIXED.
Comment 14 Mark Chappell 2010-09-23 04:51:42 EDT
The new package has been in EPEL for over a year, and there has been no negative response to either Devan's or Noa's comments.  As such closing this one off as ERRATA.
