Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-06-08 18:42:58 UTC
I found I don't have this problem with evolution-1.0.5-2 compiled against
mozilla-1.0.0-9. It does require /usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.0  to be added to
/etc/ld.so.conf, but url clicking works fine. I highly suspect the patch to fix
the library problems introduced with Mozilla 1.0 causes this problem. I would
prefer the patch to the ld.so.conf entry.

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2002-06-08 21:24:45 UTC
The fun thing is that the only thing the patch does is change where
headers/libraries are looked for and links the libs with -rpath.  There are a
couple of other weird things that I've noticed too, which is why it's not in
rawhide yet :/

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2002-07-02 05:44:04 UTC
Looks fixed for me with evolution compiled against mozilla 1.0.1 packages
