Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 78823
gnucash won't start
Last modified: 2014-03-16 22:32:37 EDT
Description of Problem:
Gnucash no longer starts
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
current rawhide packages
Steps to Reproduce:
It appears you do not have the 'slib' scheme library installed.
You need slib2c4 or later to run GnuCash.
Obtain slib at: http://swissnet.ai.mit.edu/~jaffer/SLIB.html
If you have slib installed, you may need to create
a symbolic link named 'slib' from the guile directory
(usually /usr/share/guile) to the directory where slib
You may also need to run GnuCash once as root.
You shouldn't need to run gnucash once as root, surely?!
(Running it as root once does indeed allow it to start as normal again.)
Yeah, it's some bizarre slib/scheme initialization issue. I'll have to look up
what the fix is, and which package it goes in.
I think this will be fixed with 1.7.5-1.
Tim, does this work for you now?
