Easytag package error
« on: June 24, 2007, 02:52:55 pm »
Hello, I had just finished intsalling Vector and when trying to launch Easytag I get the error:

easytag: symbol lookup error: /usr/lib/./ undefined symbol: _ZNSs4_Rep20_S_empty_rep_storageE

I wanted to report it. I hope this is the right place. It appears to be a lib from id3tag perhaps or?? that is causing the problem.

Thanks :-)

Please open a terminal and type the following command at the prompt:

Code: [Select]
cat /etc/vector-version
Post the output from the command in this thread so that we can better help you.

That's the C++ treatment of symbols well enough.

Since that's a very distinct string you have, Google turns up a number of results for your mystery C++ name mangle _ZNSs4_Rep20_S_empty_rep_storageE. I can't make head or tail of it myself...

Well to respond with a solution to this. I compile easytag from source and it works just fine. There appears to be a problem with the package for Vector. Just wanted to let someone know who maintains that package. I re-compile should do the trick.
