Description Roy Marples (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-07-05 14:01:41 UTC
From the GNOME bug

i am seeing this bug in evolution.

what happens is, a bonobo shlib component uses libglade, and uses the
symbol lookup parts of g_module.  this fails, because the symbols aren't
defined in the "self" module, but in a loaded module.

eg, gfrob loads using gmodule. calls
g_module_symbol (NULL, "foo_function").  this fails on OS X, but apparently
works on linux.

a simple workaround is to try looking up the symbol in the previoiusly
loaded modules (see attached patch).


Now, this bug is 4 years old and still hasn't been fixed upstream :/

Work on FreeBSD

This is the FreeBSD patch which enabled gmodule to work with bonobo and other stuff. Taken from their ports tree, I claim no credit.
