For a while the evolution app in openSUSE 12.1 has been failing. I have used other readers while waiting for a fix.

I decided that perhaps a better solution was to add GNOME:/STABLE:/3.4/ and see what that evolution does.

Perhaps not one of my better solutions. Aside from evolution still not starting (for apparently different reasons), things like ConsoleKit are now failing. I get a popup message when logging in to KDE about this. So, networking and other things are now broken.

I see that a common complaint is that there are undefined symbols. For example, one of the libraries that was updated is:


and it complains that g_mutex_lock is not defined. This file comes from libpolkit0, which was built July 2. So I would think some other person would have experienced any obvious problem.

The symbol comes from glib2. In 12.1 you have glib 2.30, in STABLE:/3.4 there is 2.32 and it appears to be needed

Specifically libglib-2_0-0-2.32

And if you update glib you most likely have to update gtk too. I'm surprised this wasn't dealt with automatically by dependencies. Did you force the installation somehow? If not, it's a definite bug

This was the issue. I had to update it by hand. Seems there was an issue with gio-branding. If I elected to ignore that, then glib and a few others got installed. Things seem to be better. It is odd that the rest installed without the required glib version. I only did a 'zypper up'. Nothing was forced or ignored.

Thanks for the help. I am back on line.
