Description Leonid Kanter 2002-12-26 12:15:06 UTC
Description of problem: 
 
I tried to install evolution-1.2.1-2 on semi-updated system, initially based on red hat 
7.3. all dependencies were satisfied, but evolution won't start: 
 
evolution: error while loading shared libraries: libdb.so.2: cannot open shared object 
file: No such file or directory 
 
ldd show that this library is needed: 
 
[leon@omnibook leon]$ ldd /usr/bin/evolution | grep libdb.so.2 
        libdb.so.2 => not found 
        libdb.so.2 => not found 
        libdb.so.2 => not found 
        libdb.so.2 => not found 
 
but rpm think that everything is OK: 
 
[leon@omnibook leon]$ rpm -V evolution 
[leon@omnibook leon]$ rpm -q gnome-libs 
gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-14 
 
on other box, where fresh phoebe is installed: 
 
[leon@leon leon]$ rpm -q --whatprovides libdb.so.2 
gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-26 
[leon@leon leon]$ rpm -q --whatrequires libdb.so.2 
gnome-libs-1.4.1.2.90-26 
[leon@leon leon]$ rpm -q evolution 
evolution-1.2.1-2 
[leon@leon leon]$ ldd /usr/bin/evolution | grep libdb.so.2 
        libdb.so.2 => /usr/lib/libdb.so.2 (0x40fb2000) 
 
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 
 
1.2.1-2

Comment 1 Jeremy Katz 2002-12-29 08:56:22 UTC
evolution itself doesn't require libdb, instead one of the dependent libraries
does (see readelf -a /usr/bin/evolution and look at the actual DT_NEEDED
sections).  So you lost the deps of something along the way of updating.
