Description Yil-Kyu Kang 1999-10-04 22:28:10 UTC
GnoRPM seems to segfault when trying to go into the
"prefrences" option within GnoRPM.

Comment 1 Brian Ryner 1999-10-04 23:44:59 UTC
I had this happen also.. it seems to be related to gnorpm-auth.

Comment 2 Joseph Malicki 1999-10-08 11:59:59 UTC
I reported the same bug, realized i forgot to search for it first..
what happens is gnorpm tries to connect to the internet to download
the preferences menu or something, then segfaults if it can't.
Perhaps the menu should be included in gnorpm already?

Comment 7 marias 1999-12-16 17:44:59 UTC
If just connecting to internet doesn't resolve the problem, uninstall gnorpm and
install it again.  Then, connect to the internet before trying to go into the
 "preferences" in GnoRPM.

Comment 8 marias 1999-12-16 17:48:59 UTC
It's necessary just the first time!

Comment 9 marias 1999-12-16 19:56:59 UTC

You just need to delete the <user-home>/.gnome/gnorpm.d directory and the
<user-home>/.gnome/gnorpm file, before running it the first time with an active
Internet connection.
