When glines is executed it receives a Segmentation fault. The game does not come up when run from the menu. I ran from the command line to see what was happening and received the Segmentation fault message.

How reproducible:
Happens every time /usr/bin/glines is executed.

Steps to Reproduce:

Game does not come up.

Game should come up and be ready to play.

Still broke, but getting rid of the computer where it is an issue.
Comment 2 William Makowski 2013-01-12 20:09:05 EST
Have confirmed that glines is still getting a segmentation fault on another install.  This bug has been reported upstream at Gnome (see external tracker above) and at Ubuntu.


There is a patch proposed at ubuntu that solved the problem for me.

Changing version to Fedora 18. This is still a issue in gnome-games-glines-3.6.1-1.fc18.i686.
Comment 5 Guillermo Gómez 2013-02-24 16:10:39 EST
Hmm... gnome-games-glines.x86_64 1:3.6.1-1.fc18 seems to work fine here.
Comment 6 William Makowski 2013-03-18 09:32:23 EDT
glines continues to receive a segmentation fault in the latest update.

Proposed Patch for F18

glines.c changes a little between F17 and F18. Here is the patch I have been using.
Comment 9 William Makowski 2013-12-05 10:46:47 EST
Closing, fixed in F19 with five-or-more-3.8.2-2.fc19.i686. Always happy to report problems and supply patches for myself.
