Description of problem:
After a yum update, gnumeric fails to start.
When launched, a window states - The Application "gnumeric" has quit unexpectedly
I'll install the debuginfo and try to get a trace soon.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch gnumeric
Actual Results: crashes
Expected Results: worlds best spreadsheet
no error output when started from terminal
I see the same over here, it used to work just fine, so some dependency of
gnumeric in core got updated and has it hosed. It needs a rebuild because of
some changes anyway, lets hope that the rebuild cures things.
I've upgraded my i386 testing machine to the latest rawhide and now gnumeric
starts fine, so probably the problem was in a dependency and is fixed now.
Can you upgrade to the latest rawhide and try again?
This still happens on my home machine (fully up2date rawhide) but not on my work
machine (also fully up2date rawhide).
Anyways I'll investigate further.
A run under the debugger after installing the debuginfo, shows that the actual
problem is in gtk2-engines, upgrading gtk2-engines to 2.7.0-2 (from 2.7.0-1)
fixes this for me, closing as fixed in rawhide.
