Ive got GAIM and KGet, mainly GAIM crashing on me... No error's or anything, just they disappear form the systray and notification area and that's it, gone..

Gaim is the latest, and KGet is the version that came with RH9. Ive updated libgtkspell which is the other dependancy for GAIM 0.64, so Im downloading the source for it now.

Any ideas what might be causing the apps to simply disappear?

Is there a log I should/could check?

Cheers


Chill.

As always: tail -20 /var/log/messages. Or before you start the problem applications, open a terminal and tail -f /var/log/messages.

Try running them from a terminal window. It should print something there when it dies. Usually "segmentation fault".

Gaim has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
This is a bug in the software and has happened through
no fault of your own.

It is possible that this bug is already fixed in CVS.
You can get a tarball of CVS from the Gaim website, at
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gaim-CVS.tar.gz.

If you are already using CVS, or can reproduce the crash
using the CVS version, please notify the gaim maintainers
by reporting a bug at
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/bug.php

Please make sure to specify what you were doing at the time,
and post the backtrace from the core file. If you do not know
how to get the backtrace, please get instructions at
http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gdb.php. If you need further
assistance, please IM either RobFlynn or SeanEgn and
they can help you.

It was run from a konsole and that's all I get :-)

Now, How do I submit that bug report? Im at:
http://sourceforge.net/tracker/?group_id=235
and click on Bugs.. then what?

The errors up top only occured after I enabled the Notification Plugin... Cant remember which part of it though?

Where to from here?

Cheers

Okay.. Im submitting the bug.. I guess I cant do anything but wait :-)

Perhaps its not GAIM at fault though if KGet crashed similarly.. I'll have to run that from a konsole also next time I need to download :-)

It could have been a fluke crash for KGet mind you.. ;-)

Cheers!

Have you been installing any updates lately (esp. any third party stuff)?

If its affecting multiple apps then it could be because you've replaced a shared libary with an incompatable version.

Ive been screwing round with WineX (2 and 3), but nothing else... not that I can think of at least?!
