Description Jonathan Kamens 2003-01-08 11:45:53 EST
My whole machine is current with respect to today's Raw Hide.

jik:~!34> rpm -q gnumeric
jik:~!35> rpm --verify gnumeric
jik:~!36> gnumeric
Bonobo-WARNING **: Syntax error in ''                                          

At this point it hangs.

twaugh said it worked with newer libc/kernel. Please verify when 
the next beta comes out.
Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2003-01-14 04:04:39 EST
With glibc-2.3.1-34 and the current Raw Hide kernel at work, gnumeric now starts
up.  However, at home with glibc-2.3.1-34 and a 2.4.20-ac2 kernel (i.e., no
NPTL), gnumeric continues to hang when I try to start it.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2003-01-14 09:49:17 EST
With the re0113.0 tree, gnumeric is working as expected:

However, going to push this issue back to assigned to get a ruling on the
behavior seen under a non-NPTL kernel.
Comment 5 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-14 10:07:06 EST
Moving to glibc - I don't know if glibc is supposed to be working 
in this case or not.
Comment 6 Jonathan Kamens 2003-01-15 13:02:03 EST
I am no longer convinced that this is a NPTL issue.  I saw gnumeric hang at work
again this morning, i.e., on the machine which has the NPTL kernel and glibc.  I
updated to the current Raw Hide and rebooted, and the hang went away.  I don't
know whether the reboot or the update is what cured the problem.
Comment 7 Jakub Jelinek 2003-01-15 13:05:14 EST
Lately gnumeric was stuck with LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.2.5 because of libc+linuxthreads
bug, which ought to be fixed in glibc-2.3.1-36.
