libkcrosie* missing from RC1 release?

  • Hello,

    I just updated kopano 8.3.4 final to 8.4.0 RC1 and both zpush and webapp failed with an error message about a missing shared object file libkcrosie when using custom compiled mapi with php 5.6.31 or php 7.1.10 (remi) … SCL is so outdated.

    Fatal error: Unknown:0 - PHP Startup: Unable to load dynamic library '/opt/remi/php71/root/usr/lib64/php/modules/' - cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (32)

    The only reference I found of libkcrosie is in the source

    if HAVE_TIDY
    COND_libkcrosie_la =
    COND_libkcrosie_ldd = libkcrosie.ldd
    # libkcrosie
    include_HEADERS = librosie/librosie.h
    libkcrosie_la_SOURCES = librosie/librosie.cpp
    libkcrosie_la_LIBADD  = -ltidy
    libkcrosie_la_LDFLAGS = ${AM_LDFLAGS} -no-undefined -version-info 0:0:0 \
    EXTRA_libkcrosie_la_DEPENDENCIES = ${default_sym}

    It appears libkcrosie is linked to tidy - what am I missing here? I copied the compiled libkcrosie* files from the dev server to production and was able to restore services.

    Kopano’s custom compile knowledge base page is in dire needs of an update.

    Hi @wiz ,

    are you speaking about your own builds or the official ones?

    Librosie ist part of the Core sourcecode and located at

    If you want to work on improving the manual compiling procedures help is very much welcome. We already started shifting compiling instructions from the official documentation into You can find pointers on how to contribute patches in

  • @fbartels Hello. I am referring to the official ones, RC1 release, from kopano with a custom ‘mapi[dot]so’ compiled with php from Remi repo. SCL repo releases have not been updated since December 2016! SCL depends on Remi for additional features so please consider dropping SCL in favor of Remi.

    As for the compile procedures - I’ll have a look at improving them over the weekend. Obviously, this depends on whether I receive feedback/guidance from Kopano on compile-related issues.


  • So having libtidy installed prior to compiling mapi causes librosie to get compiled and therefore becomes required by mapi… This is why librosie was not compiled and therefore required in the official kopano supported releases.
