Description Andrew Ter-Grigoryan 2012-07-23 16:53:40 EDT
The packaged version of CMYKtool in F17 (.1.6pre) is far too unstable, and crashes frequently. This application fulfills an important niche, but it looks like the project's dormant now. How about packaging an older, stable version instead?
Comment 1 Máirín Duffy 2012-07-24 10:17:50 EDT
Hi Andrew, I haven't had any crashes or instability with this tool - can you give me more details about what you're seeing?
Comment 2 Andrew Ter-Grigoryan 2012-07-24 13:53:51 EDT
For instance, when I try to open the Preferences, the program immediately crashes.
Comment 3 Máirín Duffy 2012-07-25 13:23:50 EDT
Hi Andrew, I definitely can't reproduce that crash. Can you maybe generate some kind of traceback for me to look at? Does ABRT give you a traceback at all? If not, here's the GDB docs:


Essentially, on a terminal type 'gdb cmyktool' and at the gdb prompt type 'run' and try to reproduce a crash, then check the gdb output and copy/paste it here. Sound do-able?

I really appreciate your filing the bug, I just need some more clues as to why it might be crashing on your system because it seems pretty stable on mine.

The following is the output when trying to start cmyktool through GNU debugger, then opening Preferences:

CMYKtool in F17 is no longer unstable.
