Description Göran Uddeborg 2002-08-12 06:41:18 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020724

Description of problem:
balsa fails to start with an libesmtp from Red Hat 7 series, although all RPM
dependencies are met.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 0.8.12-2

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install libesmtp-0.8.4-2
2.Install balsa from the beta
3.Run balsa

Actual Results:
uebn> balsa
balsa: relocation error: balsa: undefined symbol: smtp_starttls_set_password_cb

Expected Results:  I would have expected a balsa window.

Additional info:

The balsa binary itself references the symbol smtp_starttls_set_password_cb. 
This is defined in the library libesmtp.so.5.0.12 from libesmtp-0.4.12-2.

But the balsa RPM only requires libesmtp.so.5.  That is also provided by the
older libesmtp 0.8.4-2 from Red Hat 7.3 (and 7.2).  This particlular symbol is
not available in that version of the library.  So the loading fails.

I haven't researched exactly in which version of libesmtp the symbol appeared. 
But I obviously a "Requires libesmtp >= 0.4.12" would be on the safe side, and
cover any libesmtp versions released by Red Hat in a correct way.

Will be fixed in the next build (which will be a new version anyway.)
Comment 2 Göran Uddeborg 2003-10-03 13:32:08 EDT
This does not at all seem fixed.  It is quite possible to install balsa-2.0.11-2
and libesmtp-0.8.4-2 together without any complaints from RPM.  And it still
fails when running the same way.

Doing "rpm -q --requires balsa" only mentions libesmtp.so.5 just as before, and
that apparently is not fine-grained enough.
Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-03 14:33:29 EDT
Woops, it was added as a BuildRequire.
