Description of problem:

I just installed the new texlive on F8, now lyx crashes in preview.
rpm -q lyx
 <unknown program name>(14681)/ EPSHandler::read: kimgio EPS: starting...
<unknown program name>(14681)/ seekToCodeStart: kimgio EPS: normal EPS file
<unknown program name>(14681)/ bbox: kimgio EPS BBOX:  40   51   722   576
Fatal error: you need to have a KComponentData object before
you do anything that requires it! Examples of this are config
objects, standard directories or translations.

Understand that lyx on F8 isn't designed/tested to run with anything but tetex.

That said, have you tried (in lyx): Tools->Reconfigure ?
Comment 2 Neal Becker 2007-12-04 09:23:10 EST
Still shouldn't crash.

Tried reconfigure, no help.
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2007-12-04 09:27:51 EST
I'm going to retarget this for rawhide (I'd venture the same problem exists there).

In the meantime, please report this issue to upstream lyx bug tracker: 
Comment 4 Neal Becker 2007-12-04 10:07:35 EST
Looks like I can reproduce it by inserting an EPS graphic (but pdf graphic 
does not crash).

Reported upstream.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2007-12-04 10:11:43 EST
Reference/pointer to upstream report?

Comment 7 Rex Dieter 2007-12-11 17:08:38 EST
fyi, looks like a kdelibs(4) kimg problem.  We'll see if the kde-3.96 refresh
helps here at all.
Comment 8 Rex Dieter 2007-12-12 08:27:08 EST
fyi, here's the update to try:

Let us know if it helps or not.

 kde-filesystem          noarch     4-1.fc8          updates-testing    17 k
Installing for dependencies:
 kdebase-runtime         x86_64     3.96.2-3.fc8     updates-testing    17 M
 kdelibs4                x86_64     3.96.2-3.fc8     updates-testing    11 M
 kdepimlibs              x86_64     3.96.2-1.fc8     updates-testing   2.3 M

It looks like the problem is fixed!

Comment 11 Neal Becker 2007-12-12 21:03:49 EST
Sorry, I just got the same crash again.  Not sure why I didn't see it earlier 
this morning - perhaps just didn't hit the right test case.  (Unfortunately, I 
can't make it public.  I believe it crashed on previewing an included 'grace' 
file, which I believe was converted to eps.

I removed kdelibs4, and there is no crash.
Comment 12 Rex Dieter 2008-02-19 08:17:51 EST
reported fixed in kdelibs-4.0.1
