Description Norm Murray 2007-06-13 03:52:28 UTC
Description of problem:
Starting evolution will reproducibly crash on some systems. 

Bug-buddy backtraces filed upstream:
http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=442429 from multiple fedora users

Comment 1 Matthew Barnes 2007-06-13 09:32:25 UTC
Thanks for filing this bug report.  The upstream bug still does not have a good
stack trace, other than the snippets from other bugs that Andre posted in the
most recent comment.

Could you please install the following debuginfo packages and post a new
backtrace from Bug Buddy, either here or in the upstream bug, the next time you
encounter the crash?


Can you also please indicate exactly which packages you're using by posting the
results of the following command?

   rpm -q evolution gtk2 glib2

Having this information would be of great help in tracking down the source of
this crash.  Thanks in advance.

# rpm -q evolution gtk2 glib2

And I thought I'd cleared out the accidental rawhide upgrade. Oh well. 

Reverting those to fc7 level and evolution is now starting successfully for me
anyhow. Don't know if it's the same issue that everyone else is having though.
