Works for me. Could you please install nedit-debuginfo and send me backtrace of
the crash? Or strace output?

Comment 3 Jindrich Novy 2006-11-07 09:28:39 EST
Did yum install lesstif and removed openmotif during the update?
Comment 4 peterschueller 2006-11-08 14:14:01 EST
I don't think so:

> grep "\(lesstif\|openmotif\)" upgrade.log

shows nothing.

> rpm -q -a | grep "\(lesstif\|openmotif\)"

Isn't openmotif part of FC6? I can't find it!
Or shall I try installing lesstif?
Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2006-11-08 15:32:18 EST
This is the source of your problem. nedit-5.5-10.fc6 is built agaist lesstif,
but you have only openmotif libraries installed. lesstif is the replacement of
openmotif, so it uses same named but !different! libraries what is the cause of
the segfault. To fix it remove openmotif completely as it conflicts with
lesstif, and replace it with lesstif, then nedit will work as expected.
