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