Description William Throwe 2017-02-22 21:22:51 UTC
Fails (when run with any argument list) with "Couldn't open cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory".  It's not linked against libGL, so I assume it is dlopening it.
Comment 1 Mart Raudsepp gentoo-dev 2017-02-22 22:13:32 UTC
mesa isn't the only provider of, however.
virtual/opengl maybe. And something might be trying to open it instead of zathura itself
Comment 2 William Throwe 2017-02-23 00:09:57 UTC
Good points.  By running grep over the libraries zathura links against, it looks likely that media-libs/libepoxy-1.3.1 is the actual culprit.  Looking at the libepoxy ebuild, I see that it DEPENDs on media-libs/mesa, which also seems suspicious.  A quick search through the libepoxy source turns up the line

src/dispatch_common.c:    /** dlopen() return value for */

So I think I'll change this to a libepoxy bug.
Comment 3 Matt Turner gentoo-dev 2017-03-04 07:58:38 UTC
libepoxy is to be used by applications *already* using OpenGL.

gtk+ (a dependency of zathura) depends on libepoxy, but not an OpenGL implementation. Either gtk+ or libepoxy needs to depend on OpenGL.

media-libs/glew depends on virtual/opengl, so I guess that's what libepoxy should do as well.

leio, what do you think?

    media-libs/libepoxy: RDEPEND on media-libs/mesa
    The .pc file installed by libepoxy says it requires gl, which is
    installed by Mesa.
