This package has changed ownership in the Fedora Package Database.  Reassigning to the new owner of this component.

Comment 3 Hans de Goede 2011-01-01 15:01:36 UTC

I'm the new maintainer of gcompris and going through all open gcompris bugs. gcompris-0.9.3 suffered from some memory corruption problems. And this bug seems to be one of a number of abrt reported bugs caused by these memory corruption problems. Unfortunately bugs like these are very hard to fix and I don't have the time to track this down.

Upstream has recently released gcompris-0.9.5, which contains some memory corruption fixes which hopefully fixes this.

This is available as an update for all supported Fedora releases (F-13 and F-14). To get this update do:
yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gcompris

If you still encounter problems with 0.9.5 please file a new bug with a 0.9.5 generated backtrace attached (through abrt).

If this update fixes your problems please login and then give it positive karma here:

Thanks & Regards,
