Last modified: 2007-12-18 08:23:46 EST
Description of problem:
Inkscape segfaults right after showing its main window.
I tried updating to gc-7.0-6 from F-7 SRPM, per bug 248700, but there's no change.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Build inkscape from F-7 SRPM along with its dependencies.
2. Run it.
Emergency save activated!
Emergency save completed. Inkscape will close now.
If you can reproduce this crash, please file a bug at www.inkscape.org
with a detailed description of the steps leading to the crash, so we can fix it.
It should run normally.

Ah sorry. Will look into it, I'm barely getting started porting to EL-4 and EL-5.
Can you try the current EL-5 branch svn ? That's working for me on RHEL 5.1 x86_64.
Should be in epel-testing. Please reopen if you're still having problems.
Confirmed working. Thanks for the quick resolution. I wonder what I did wrong
