Summary0001694: Evolution does not start with seamonkey-nss update
DescriptionAfter applying update:
seamonkey-nspr.i386 1.0.8-0.1.el4.centos
seamonkey-nss.i386 1.0.8-0.1.el4.centos
seamonkey.i386 1.0.8-0.1.el4.centos
Evolution would not start on two updated machines here. From the command line I got: $ evolution

(evolution:4865): evolution-smime-WARNING **: Failed all methods for initializing NSS
rpm --oldpackage on these three packages got evolution up and running again.
TagsNo tags attached.
