Mixing distrow is *always* a bad idea. That will lead to all sort of 

In this case, Debian pkg-e team decided to change sonames of e libraries 
because of unstable ABI.

Pkg-fso repository currently has packages with changes sonames.

I hope a working e17 will follow soon. Help is welcome on that :)

You may try to symlink libevase-0.0.50a.so to libevas.so.0, and similar to 
other libs, then you will no longer see that error. Instead your linker 
will blindly use binary-incompatible libs, and application will crash 
sooner or later. You have been warned.
