Description Michal Jaegermann 2009-10-04 23:39:15 UTC
Description of problem:

An attempt to run 'make' for 'demo' directory from GraphicsMagick-perl-1.3.7-1.fc11.x86_64 package results in:

$ make
perl demo.pl
perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/auto/Graphics/Magick/Magick.so: undefined symbol: InitializeMagick
make: *** [all] Error 127

With source rpm pulled and after 'rpmbuild --rebuild GraphicsMagick-1.3.7-1.fc11.src.rpm' and reinstallation of GraphicsMagick-perl from a package created that way the problem is gone.
It looks like that bug 365901 shows up again.

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

How reproducible:

Additional info:
The same issue hits also GraphicsMagick-perl-1.3.7-1.el5.x86_64 now in epel-testing.

Comment 1 Dan Stahlke 2009-10-15 00:35:25 UTC
This bug affects anything that needs to use the Graphics::Magick perl module.

$ perl -MGraphics::Magick -e1
perl: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/auto/Graphics/Magick/Magick.so: undefined symbol: InitializeMagick

Comment 2 Dan Stahlke 2009-10-15 00:48:49 UTC
The workaround mentioned in bug 203975 works here:

cd /usr/lib64/perl5/vendor_perl/5.10.0/x86_64-linux-thread-multi/auto/Graphics/Magick
mv Magick.so Magick-0.so
ld -shared -o Magick.so `pwd`/Magick-0.so /usr/lib64/libGraphicsMagick.so

Comment 3 Dan Stahlke 2009-11-20 01:53:52 UTC
Problem still exists in Fedora 12.

Comment 4 Michal Jaegermann 2010-01-13 18:37:13 UTC
The current update to GraphicsMagick-perl-1.3.7-4.fc11 suffers from the same affliction.

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-04-28 10:42:16 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '11'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 11's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 11 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 6 Chris Nighswonger 2010-04-28 11:55:38 UTC
As mentioned by Dan Stahlke above, this issue appears to still exit in Fedora 12. Someone needs to bump the version number referenced in this bug so that it stays on radar for Fedora 12.

Comment 7 Michal Jaegermann 2010-04-28 21:20:12 UTC
The issue is the same also for GraphicsMagick-1.3.12-1.fc14, and most likely for fc13 as well (which "Bug Zappers" could easily verify).

Comment 8 Bug Zapper 2010-07-30 10:44:48 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 14 development cycle.
Changing version to '14'.
