Description of problem:
When trying to run remmina and connect to a vnc host it crashes with:
remmina-plugin-vnc.so: undefined symbol: gnutls_global_init

I'm fully up to date as of today's date

I looked in

I also did a grep of ldd remmina-plugin-vnc.so and there is no linkage to gnutls so I'm not sure what is going on.

I just upgraded to f17 with preupgrade and can confirm the exact same problem:

remmina: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/remmina/plugins/remmina-plugin-vnc.so: undefined symbol: gnutls_global_init

Same problem here with Fedora 17:

remmina: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib64/remmina/plugins/remmina-plugin-vnc.so: undefined symbol: gnutls_global_init

Comment 3 Christoph Wickert 2012-06-04 14:43:33 EDT
Can you please try 1.0.0-3 from updates-testing?
Comment 4 Nathanael Noblet 2012-06-04 14:46:13 EDT

linker patch
Comment 6 Nathanael Noblet 2012-06-04 16:15:44 EDT
The error stems from not explicitly stating the linker requirements. This is because of this[1] change. I've also checked that it properly makes remmina-plugins-vnc require gnutls without having to modify your spec file at all. Should be safe to apply and build.

Comment 7 James Hogan 2012-06-08 16:06:43 EDT
Thanks, I rebuilt remmina rpms with your patch Nathanael and can confirm that it fixes the problem for me.
Comment 8 Christoph Wickert 2012-06-09 14:34:27 EDT
Thanks for the patch. I wonder why it built without it, but that is probably just some cmake foo I'm not going to understand.

Update is coming your way, stay tuned.
