Have you upgraded mozilla?  Also, if you run `killev ; wombat` in a terminal,
what output do you get?
Comment 2 Christian Huettermann 2002-06-17 15:43:12 EDT
you got it. i've upgraded mozilla with the latest rpm from porkchop. the
dependency killed my evolution because it has not been able to find libraries in
/usr/lib/mozilla-1.0.0. wombat didnt want to start because of missing libs. 
adding this path to /etc/ld.so.conf fixed this for me.
You might want to check out an additional dependency or a proper path selection
for mozilla 'though.
Thanks for the hint.

Blizzard and I are already working on coordinating this in rawhide by getting
evolution linked with an rpath.
