Description Peter van Egdom 2002-08-03 15:54:20 EDT

Description of problem:
I installed Limbo beta 2 from scratch on my machine and noticed that when I
start Licq I get the message :

/usr/lib/licq/licq-bin: option requires an argument -- p
21:42:21: [WRN] Licq: Ignoring stale lockfile (pid 2974)
21:42:21: [ERR] Unable to load plugin (qt-gui): /usr/lib/licq/licq_qt-gui.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.

Although I did a custom install and added and removed a package here & there
during install, Anaconda did not complain about unsatisfied dependencies.

Could it be that the dependencies for licq-1.x.xx.rpm are not set up correctly?

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

How reproducible:
Didn't try

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Licq by typing "licq"

Actual Results:  [ERR] Unable to load plugin (qt-gui):
/usr/lib/licq/licq_qt-gui.so:  cannot open shared object file:
No such file or directory.

Expected Results:  Licq should've started.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-08-06 10:02:05 EDT
Works here. By any chance, didn't you install any licq frontends? 
Comment 2 Peter van Egdom 2002-08-06 14:19:19 EDT
I installed just the 'main' licq rpm, as demonstrated below :

[root@limbo-pc root]# rpm -qa |grep -i licq

[root@limbo-pc root]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Linux release 7.3.93 (Limbo)

I selected this RPM during a custom installation.

I expected Anaconda to complain about missing dependencies, but
Anaconda just installed this _without_ automatically selecting

I quote the text of the output of 'rpm -qi licq-1.1.0-2.cvs20020521.6':
"Licq is an ICQ online messaging system clone, written in C++ using the
Qt widget set".

When I installed the "licq-qt-1.1.0-2.cvs20020521.6.rpm" licq works as

To conclude, shouldn't this QT library be a required dependency for
LICQ, a lot of people won't be able to use LICQ if they don't select it.

The same thing is happening to me with a fresh installation of '(null)'.
After installing licq (via "up2date licq"), it fails to start.

$ licq
/usr/lib/licq/licq-bin: option requires an argument -- p
20:46:33: [ERR] Unable to load plugin (qt-gui): /usr/lib/licq/licq_qt-gui.so:
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory.
$ rpm -qa | grep licq

I will attach the one-line patch that fixes this.
(perhaps it should suggest installing one of the frontend RPMs?)

Fixed in rawhide in rpm licq-1.2.3-4 or later.
