Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 44027
gtali segfaults, works fine when I move the ~/.gnome/gtali file out of the way
Last modified: 2013-04-02 00:15:07 EDT
Basically gtali was segfaulting every time on startup (the main window
never appeared, just the "a fault occurred" popup). I renamed the
config/settings file out of the way and it started up OK.
I'm attaching in a moment the file that was there.
Created attachment 20694 [details]
.gnome/gtali config/settings file which appears to trigger a segfault in gtali
[bill@localhost bill]$ gtali --version
Gnome gtali 22.214.171.124
[bill@localhost bill]$ rpm -qf $( which gtali )
[bill@localhost bill]$ rpm -qi gnome-games

Summary : GNOME games.
The gnome-games package includes games for the GNOME GUI desktop
environment, including GnomeScott, ctali, freecell, gataxx, glines,
gnibbles, gnobots2, gnome-stones, gnomine, gnotravex, gtali, gturing,
iagno, mahjongg, same-gnome, and sol.
This appears to be a somewhat corrupted file. I'm not sure how it got this way
(I cannot reproduce it.) In addition, in the future we're moving to a GConf
based config scheme for GNOME, and that will hopefully avoid these problems.
