Comment 1 foser (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-11-09 09:03:07 UTC
i see you have autoclean=no ? any particular reason to have that set as normal user.. it is known that it might cause problems with incorrect linking to the live filesys. Disable it & clean-up (emerge -cp) & then remerge nautilus.
Comment 2 qube99 2004-11-11 16:46:29 UTC
I set autoclean to no because I've had 'emerge -c' remove important packages in the past.  In any case, I set autoclean to yes, checked and ran 'emerge -c',  and remerged nautilus to no effect.
Comment 3 qube99 2005-03-03 07:25:46 UTC
I think I've discovered the source of this problem, though I'm not sure
how to solve it.  Compiling nautilus manually produces in src/ a nautilus
shell script as follows:


# nautilus - temporary wrapper script for .libs/nautilus
# Generated by - GNU libtool 1.5.6 (1.1220.2.94 2004/04/10 16:27:27)
# The nautilus program cannot be directly executed until all the libtool
# libraries that it depends on are installed.
# This wrapper script should never be moved out of the build directory.
# If it is, it will not operate correctly.

Running this causes nautilus to run.  Furthermore, running it causes
.libs/lt-nautilus to be formed which also runs correctly.  So, it'd seem
like part of the necessary compilation steps would be to run the script
and move .libs/lt-nautilus over .libs/nautilus.  Of course, that's just
a hack solution.  I'd really like to know why such is occuring on my
system while no one elses to be having this problem.

could you please emerge strace, and attach the output here? ( by running from terminal, "strace nautilus".  hopefully that will give us more information about the library its trying to load, and then just have you emerge or re-emerge that package that contains that library.  Thanks!

Comment 6 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-07 09:56:29 UTC
what version of nautilus is this happening with? does it still happen with 2-10.0 ?
Comment 7 John N. Laliberte (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-06-20 18:52:15 UTC
need to know if this still happens with latest version
Comment 8 qube99 2005-06-20 21:16:54 UTC
A build of 2.6.10 doesn't seem to have this problem.  I did have to clean up 
some lib files though that didn't belong (not a clue where those came from).  
So, I guess problem solved.
