emerge --info

app-admin/rsyslog USE=ssl fails to load the gnutls plugin library, stating in log
rsyslogd-2066: could not load module '/usr/lib64/rsyslog/', dlopen: /usr/lib64/rsyslog/ undefined symbol: gcry_control
 [try ]

steps to reproduce:
1. emerge --sync && emerge -uDN world
2. USE=ssl emerge app-admin/rsyslog
3. enable tls module in rsyslog config
4. rc-service rsyslog restart
5. watch your log file

Tried with app-admin/rsyslog-5.8.11 and app-admin/rsyslog-5.8.12, with dev-libs/libgcrypt-1.5.0-r2 and dev-libs/libgcrypt-1.4.6

A similar bug is at

I don't see whether you have specific package USE flags, but can you try emerging again (-uDN) with USE flags gnutls and gcrypt enabled? Don't forget to `revdep-rebuild` afterwards, making sure it ends up being clean.

This could indicate whether the USE flag being not properly configuring the build from the ebuild might be the problem.
Comment 2 Conrad 2012-10-21 15:06:29 UTC
globally enabling these use flags would run me into severe conflicts. However I was able to workaround this bug by changing net-libs/gnutls to USE="-nettle" like mentioned in the bug you linked. Thank you for the hint.

un-CC'ing myself since I stepped down as co-maintainer of rsyslog

This version of rsyslog is not supported and not in tree anymore. Please try with a newer version and open a new bug if the issue persists.
