kpilot crashes trying to sync; undefined symbol: _ZN16PilotAppCategory10pilotCodecE

Bug #161986 reported by Volker Paul on 2007-11-11
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
kdepim (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Hi, I just asked question #17564, but it seems it's rather a bug than a question:

When starting from command line, kpilot fails with the following message:
kpilot: symbol lookup error: kpilot: undefined symbol: _ZN16PilotAppCategory10pilotCodecE

When starting kpilot with KDE's Run Command, it behaves differently:
No complaint, window appears.
HotSync button on Palm,
tries to sync, then crashes.

Both errors are repeatable.

Here are details about kpilot version (under Ubuntu 7.10):

I can also confirm this bug, in hardy.

However I get slightly diferent results.

When running from the kde utilities menu, it just doesn't function. Won't sync using usb: as the device path.

When running from the command line, it will sync, then crashes as above.

Same problem with kubuntu hardy... waiting for solution or any suggestion....

If people are able to reproduce this in Hardy could you provide the following information:
what version of kde are you running?
what version of kpilot?

Could you install the package kdepim-dbg which contains the debugging symbols and induce the crash to get a backtrace.

If the crash occurs under kde3 can anybody confirm if it also happens under kde4 If anybody is able to reproduce this in Intrepid and provide the same information that would be great.
