Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 446737
Zim segfaults after initial notebook creation
Last modified: 2008-09-11 12:59:02 EDT
Description of problem: Installed and ran Zim. Created new notebook and started
it up. Quit it, and tried to restart, get 'Segmentation fault'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Zim-0.23-2.fc9.noarch
How reproducible: Seems to be everytime
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install, run 'zim'. Create new Notebook.
2. Bring up text editor. Add something (or not), quit.
3. run 'zim' again.
Expected results: Text editor should come up and let me type cool things :)
Additional info: It fails on both my desktop and laptop, both running F9. 'rm
-rf ~/.config/zim' fixes the problem on both machines (well, it runs zim and
allows you to recreate a new notebook, but segfaults after quitting again)
Additional Info :
Removing the notebooks.list and restarting Zim works until the next quit and start.
$ lsb_release -a
LSB Version: :core-3.1-amd64:core-3.1-noarch:graphics-3.1-amd64:graphics-3.1-noarch
Distributor ID: Fedora
Description: Fedora release 9 (Sulphur)
I'm going to build and push Zim 0.25 as soon as bug 445962 is resolved;
hopefully it will address this issue...
I experienced this bug, which is fixed in Zim 0.25 - grab it from:
With the Zim 0.23 currently in Fedora, Zim is basically unusable for new users
it seems :(
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=445962 has been fixed now.
Can you build a package for Zim 0.25, please?

Zim-0.25-2.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
I just submitted an update to 0.25, latest upstream. I'd been holding off as one test fails, but upstream assures me that this is "OK in normal use", and indeed, 0.25 works for me.
Nonetheless, please test and report issues :) Update instructions should be appearing here magically, as soon as the updates system actually executes the push.
Zim-0.25-2.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 testing repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
If you want to test the update, you can install it with
su -c 'yum --enablerepo=updates-testing update Zim'. You can provide feedback for this update here: http://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/F9/FEDORA-2008-7232
Zim-0.25-2.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
