Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245464
Openoffice dies with latest gtk2
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:08 EST
Description of problem:
Writer and spreadsheet die almost immediately doing anything at all.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Start up spreadsheet. Edit anything in the entry field. Also dies opening up
Steps to Reproduce:
This is related to gtk2 and gtk2-engines (Bug 241833)
Backing out to gtk2-2.10.11-7.fc7.i386.rpm and the associated engines file makes
the problem disappear. Contrary to bug 241833, this seems to be the only
application that aborts on my system. Upgrades to gnome/compiz/libwnck mean I
can't back out easily any more.
In preferences, turning on "Use opengl", disabling Java, disabling spell
checking and disabling help tips seems to fix the problem.
I strongly suspect cairo, see bug 243811
