Description Oron Peled 2007-02-28 12:40:36 UTC
Description of problem:

Trying to run the latest gnucash aborts with an error message.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Simply run this gnucash version.

Actual results:
Gnucash aborts with the following error message:
ERROR: Could not find slib/require.scm in  ("/usr/share/guile/site"
"/usr/share/gnucash/guile-modules" "/usr/share/gnucash/scm" ""
"/usr/share/guile/site" "/usr/share/guile/1.8" "/usr/share/guile")

I located the missing file in /usr/share/slib which is part
of the installed package: slib-3a3-2

After looking in the /usr/bin/gnucash startup script I tried
the following workaround:
  env GUILE_LOAD_PATH=/usr/share gnucash

And gnucash aborted again with the following error message:
ERROR: In procedure open-file:
ERROR: No such file or directory: "/usr/share/slib/mklibcat"

Expected results:

Comment 1 Oron Peled 2007-02-28 14:12:37 UTC
Found the culprit and fixed it:
 - Had another host with a working gnucash.
 - strace -fe open -o out.txt /usr/bin/gnucash
 - Found /usr/share/guile/site/slib/require.scm
 - /usr/share/guile/site/slib is a symlink to /usr/share/slib
 - The link was missing on the faulty host
 - rpmverify gnucash guile slib got clean on both hosts.
 - rpmquery -f /usr/share/guile/site/* on the good
   host shows no package owns it.
 - rpmquery --scripts on the suspected packages shows nothing relevant.
 - Hmmm..... maybe another package is involved? which?
 - Arrrggg... those triggers.
 - rpmquery --triggers guile
 - Manually run these commands on the faulty host.
 - All is in order.
