Description Karsten Hopp 2006-07-10 14:30:06 UTC
Note: ldd can't handle dlopen'ed dependent libraries and these unresolved symbols
might be resolved by those. But this needs to be checked.
Reproducer: rpm -ql <packagename>| grep lib.*so | xargs ldd -r

undefined symbol: xmlFree       (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_str_hash    (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_str_equal   (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_free        (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_dir_close   (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_strdup_printf       (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: g_strcasecmp  (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: gtk_object_get_type   (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: gnome_config_clean_key_       (/usr/lib/
undefined symbol: gnome_config_pop_prefix       (/usr/lib/

Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2007-04-17 19:22:39 UTC
Is this still an issue?  We should try and resolve this for f7...

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-17 22:56:29 UTC
yes, still happening. nees to be linked against (at least)
libxml, libgnome and glib, but it isn't.

Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2007-04-18 05:06:00 UTC
Looks like the Makefile only adds the libs to the binaries, not to the libraries.

Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-18 21:30:36 UTC
Mostly fixed in gnome-pilot-2.0.15-5.fc7.

There's still a few outliers:

   $ rpm -ql gnome-pilot-devel | grep lib.*so | xargs ldd -r | grep missing
   undefined symbol: gnome_pilot_conduit_sync_type_int_to_str      
   undefined symbol: gnome_pilot_conduit_sync_type_str_to_int      
   undefined symbol: gnome_pilot_conduit_set_name  (/usr/lib/

but I think these can be a build order issue as mentioned in the README:

   * NOTE: Currently theres a buildorder bug between libgpilotdCM and
   * gpilotd. If you get a compiletime error in libgpilotdCM that file
   * "gpilotd/gnome-pilot-conduit.h" is missing, do a make -k and then
   * make again.

Closing this bug and forwarding the remaining issue upstream.

Comment 5 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-18 21:39:59 UTC
s|can be a build order issue|can be attributed to a build order issue|

Upstream bug:

Comment 6 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-23 19:01:34 UTC
Reopening since upstream has a fix for the remaining issue:

Comment 7 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-23 19:03:57 UTC
*** Bug 237492 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

Comment 8 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-23 22:10:28 UTC
Aw nuts.  Even with the upstream fix applied, we're still missing one:

   $ rpm -ql gnome-pilot-devel | grep lib.*so | xargs ldd -r > /dev/null
   undefined symbol: gnome_pilot_conduit_set_name  (/usr/lib/

Applied the current fix to gnome-pilot-2.0.15-7.fc7.

Also reopened the upstream bug to get that last symbol taken care of.

Comment 9 Matthew Barnes 2007-04-24 14:50:42 UTC
Upstream has taken care of the last symbol, and I've backported the fix.

Fixed (for good) in gnome-pilot-2.0.15-8.fc7.
