That's not the problem. The symbol _ZN7Akonadi3Job16doHandleResponseExRKNS_8Protocol7CommandE has been removed from libakonadicore5 without bumping the SONAME. Looking more in detail, it's clear that the library moved from Akonadi::Job::doHandleResponse(long long, Akonadi::Protocol::Command const&) to Akonadi::Job::doHandleResponse(long long, QSharedPointer<Akonadi::Protocol::Command> const&) without bumping SONAME. And furthermore, commit 75ba24508a4cb5e8786c98782b93121078089369 in your packaging repository happily swaps the 2 symbols without giving an explenation for why it's ok to drop the older symbol (which is clearly not ok). And from the same commit I see the same fate happened to other symbols as well. Therefore, IMHO: > Please rebuild kjots against Akonadi 4:17.08.3-2 to bump its dependency on > libkf5akonadi*. It's not the appropriate action. Please treat this bug as you'd usually treat an ABI break. -- regards, Mattia Rizzolo GPG Key: 66AE 2B4A FCCF 3F52 DA18 4D18 4B04 3FCD B944 4540 .''`. more about me: https://mapreri.org : :' : Launchpad user: https://launchpad.net/~mapreri `. `'` Debian QA page: https://qa.debian.org/developer.php?login=mattia `-
