latest glibc update breaks Evolution(CentOS 5.6)

Recommended Posts

After recently updating to CentOS 5.6 I came across the problem that my evolution wouldn't start up anymore.

I went an searched and found out that more people are having the same problem as me. The problem is that

the latest version of glibc breaks evolution.


here's the bugreport


here's the topic of how to fix the problem


It's recommended that you do as post #3 says. Don't upgrade to 5.6. Do the following first:


add: exclude=glibc*2.5-58.el5_6.2 nscd*2.5-58.el5_6.2 xorg-x11-server-utils-7.1-5.el5_6.1 to /etc/yum.conf


then you can update and evolution works. If you have already updated you need to downgrade first but it's all in the topic :)
