mrproject file crashes mrproject
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:06 EST
Description of problem:
See the attached mrproject file... it crashes mrproject immediately upon loading
the file. Strange as I just used mrproject to create the file not but a few
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL3 with all updates, mrproject-0.9-7
Created attachment 112456 [details]
The "bad" project file that mrproject creates, but then can't open
Experimenting with the app today reveals that whenever:
1. a task name is indented using teh indent icon.
2. the file is save
3. the app will crash when it tries to open the saved file.
Hope this helps
It quite possibly will. Thanks!
I am indeed looking at this, but it seems libxml is somehow involved as well
which complicates things just a bit.
MrProject from FC1 solves the crashing in this case. Can we get an
upgrade/update for RHEL3?
Hmmm, we don't generally upgrade the version (only backport fixes), but I'll
investigate with PM.
Are you saying you installed the FC1 RPM (mrproject-0.10-1) and it works fine?
Yes, that is what I'm saying.
donald: would this be an acceptable fix for this issue? (ie, update RHEL3
mrproject to the FC1 version of mrproject)
joshua: I assume you also had to install the FC1 "libmrproject" RPMs?
Yes, that too.
I have isolated the fix and will post testing RHEL3 RPMs soon for i386.
Please grab testing RPMs from http://people.redhat.com/dcbw/mrproject/ and
verify that they fix the problem.
Yup... this fixes it. Can this come out as a streaming errata, unstead of
waiting for a U# update?
I can invesitgate an asynchronous update, but can't promise anything of course...
Unfortunately, this issue doesn't meet the criteria for an asynchronous update,
but an errata request has been filed and should get out with Update 6.

About nine months to fix this crazy-simple bug? Actually, the fix happened in
May.... why is it December and this is still an issue?
An advisory has been issued which should help the problem
described in this bug report. This report is therefore being
closed with a resolution of ERRATA. For more information
