Comment 8 Kalev Lember 2013-04-02 21:27:02 UTC
Proposing as a F19 Alpha Freeze Exception. Would be nice to have a gnome-terminal without crashing preferences on the live media.

Comment 9 Fedora Update System 2013-04-03 16:11:38 UTC
Package gnome-terminal-
* should fix your issue,
* was pushed to the Fedora 19 testing repository,
* should be available at your local mirror within two days.
Update it with:
# su -c 'yum update --enablerepo=updates-testing gnome-terminal-'
as soon as you are able to.
Please go to the following url:
then log in and leave karma (feedback).

Comment 10 Adam Williamson 2013-04-03 18:25:55 UTC
Discussed at 2013-04-03 freeze exception review meeting: http://meetbot.fedoraproject.org/fedora-blocker-review/2013-04-03/f19alpha-blocker-review-4.2013-04-03-16.01.log.txt . Accepted as a freeze exception - this would be an annoying bug for anyone who wanted to configure their terminal in a live session, and it's early in freeze right now. We'll try and land it quickly, please try and get karma on the update.

Comment 11 Fedora Update System 2013-04-09 03:38:18 UTC
gnome-terminal- has been pushed to the Fedora 19 stable repository.  If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
