Last modified: 2015-01-07 19:02:41 EST
Description of problem:
I am testing out Phoebe as a standard user on a fresh install. I ran "Floppy
Formatter" and it immediately crashed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run "Floppy Formatter" from the Red Hat menu
2. Watch it crash
Application "gfloppy" has crashed due to a fatal error. (Segmentation fault)
Backtrace was generated from '/usr/bin/gfloppy'

Anything other then a crash.
I installed gnome-utils-debuginfo and saw this text in the terminal when gfloppy
dlopen failed on 'libthread_db.so.1' - /lib/i686/libthread_db.so.1: undefined

The old spec file wasn't installing a schema. It now is, but you prolly need to
reset the key by doing something like:
gconftool-2 -s /apps/gfloppy/default_fs -t string ext2
There's better error checking filed upstream at:
