Description Brian Johnson 2008-05-15 15:50:17 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.
Actual results:
[scorponok]</home/mbjohn>% zim
Segmentation fault

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.

I'm going to build and push Zim 0.25 as soon as bug 445962 is resolved;
hopefully it will address this issue...
Comment 3 Paul Bredbury 2008-06-05 10:12:12 EDT
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 :(
Comment 4 Jean-François Martin 2008-06-12 04:08:57 EDT
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=445962 has been fixed now.
Can you build a package for Zim 0.25, please?

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2008-08-07 02:20:53 EDT
Zim-0.25-2.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Comment 8 Chris Weyl 2008-08-07 02:23:57 EDT
Ok, so.

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.
