How reproducible:

Always, just use f-spot

1. Use f-spot
Actual results:

After some operations, f-spot crashes.

Expected results:

Should just do it's job

Additional info:

In this case I just finished uploading an image on flickr and opened one on gimp.

Experiencing this as well, makes the program virtually unusable. Happens at different times but *very* frequently, can crash it within a few seconds just browsing around photos. Have not been able to identify any one thing that causes it.
Comment 2 Devan Goodwin 2008-12-15 16:45:12 EST
Forgot to mention, I'm on F10 x86_64.
Comment 3 Will Kemp 2008-12-19 10:20:55 EST
I'm having the same problem. Also F10 x86_64. F-spot is virtually unusable - and i can't help worrying about what it could do to my library of over 5000 photos if it's this unstable.
Comment 4 Sebastian Pölsterl 2008-12-19 16:47:29 EST
I have the same problem. Every time I want to delete a image from my collection f-spot crashes. Very annoying. I'm using F10 i386
Comment 5 Devan Goodwin 2008-12-21 10:24:57 EST
Found this bug in the GNOME Bugzilla: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=552272

Based on the comments there it appears we need to update f-spot to at least 0.5.
Comment 6 Steven Bakker 2008-12-24 17:53:38 EST
Same thing here. F10/i386. Delete, rotate, tag, anything -- results in crash. Completely useless at this point. Am I going to have to use kphotoalbum?
Comment 7 Devan Goodwin 2008-12-25 20:06:49 EST
Hang in there, I updated the package for 0.5.0 in Fedora CVS and it appears to be building and working fine locally. I haven't yet committed these changes however, trying to contact the package owner to make sure my changes are kosher and he doesn't mind someone else rebuilding. If I can't reach him soon I'll check that I have appropriate permissions and rebuild + push out.
Comment 8 Will Kemp 2008-12-26 08:34:33 EST
That's good news. I haven't managed to build v0.5.0 on my F10 system - some library problem that i haven't been able to solve yet - so i'm glad to hear it can be done. If there's likely to be an updated package available soon, i'll stop bashing my head against that particular brick wall! Thanks.
