What type of database were you using?

> What type of database were you using?

The crash occurs prior to reaching a dialog to specify the external database or
database type.  It occurs while trying to create the .rkl file.
Comment 4 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-12-16 12:54:56 EST
OK, I see. I cannot reproduce this crash on my laptop (FC5), let me try to find
an FC4 machine to test with.
Comment 5 Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-04-07 10:29:54 EDT
I can't reproduce this in 2.4.0. Please try to update to the 2.4.0 packages
(making sure the 2.2.* packages are missing) and test this.
Comment 6 Craig Goodyear 2006-04-07 12:54:20 EDT
Updating to version 2.4.0 has fixed the problem.
