Gaim dies after loading the buddies list
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:28 EST
Description of problem:
Currently, if you fire up gaim, it goes through the load up procedure, but then
dies after loading the friends lists. If you remove the .gaim directory, gaim
fires up without a hitch
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gaim
Gaim generates the following throwback which points to the msn library being shot
gaim should start
There was a bit more throwback than the above, but it was mostly gtk and memory
map. I will add it to this bug if you want it.
please get a backtrace as per gaim.sf.net/gdb.php after installing the -debug rpm.
Created attachment 127226 [details]
For some reason, the debuginfo rpm fails to start bugbuddy
I don't think the debuginfo rpm is supposed to start bugbuddy. I think it just
provides debug symbols so that a backtrace (which can be obtained by following
the instructions at http://gaim.sourceforge.net/gdb.php) is more useful.
Could someone try with this CVS patch:
I think this will apply to "oldstatus" (<2.0.0) gaim
