Description Trever Adams 2005-10-11 19:09:48 EDT

User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8b5) Gecko/20051008 Fedora/1.5-0.5.0.beta2 Firefox/1.4.1

Description of problem:
Every time I use gaim it crashes. I finally did a trace with ltrace -ff found below. It shows that it needs lnusertemp which is not found. It seems to be in kdelibs, which I am installing now. However, this is bad because there is not dependency and there is also no other kde code in gaim.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Remove any kdelibs
2. Run gaim
3. Wait
4. Watch it crash

Actual Results:  Crashes, as mentioned above.

Expected Results:  It shouldn't crash.
