    Default After update "My Computer" Folder fails to open

    Hi everybody:
    I am running openSUSE 11.1 with fully updated KDE 4.2.1
    Yesterday, after downloading the latest updates, mostly KDE's, I clicked on "My computer" folder to check the version, Kanqueror opened up initially,then it crashed briniging up the crash report dialog box. I rebooted the system and tried again. The same happend.
    Any suggestions please?
    Thank you!

    Try to delete konqueror folder in your home directory. I think it is located in /home/your_username/.kde4/share/apps/.

    Regards.

    Thanks for your reply!
    I did delete the konqueror folder as you instructed. The problem still remains. I still get the crash handler dialog box, when I click on "My Computer" folder.
    Any other solution?

    See properties of icon and tell us the location that icon use as target. Is it sysinfo:/ ?
    Try to start konqueror through console (just press Alt+F2 type konsole and then in konsole type konqueror). Does it crash or not? See if any unusual messages are shown in konsole output. If problem is still present try to update konqueror through yast.

    Same problem here, weird thing is I have two identical installs on both laptop and server, laptop is OK, server crashes konqueror on sysinfo:/

    Already logged out and renamed all konqueror files. Still crashes. Also for any user, incl. root. Solutions by asmerito have already been applied, no result.

    Yes it is.

    Try to start konqueror through console (just press Alt+F2 type konsole and then in konsole type konqueror). Does it crash or not?.
    Yes. It crashes exactly the same way as before (non-konsole).

    See if any unusual messages are shown in konsole output. If problem is still present try to update konqueror through yast.
    No message at all. Opens up Konqueror looking for sysinfo, and crashes right away.
    BTW, I did remove and re-installed the Konqueror through YaSt to no avail. Also, if I run konqueror as a browser from the menu, it opens up ok. I believe the culprit is sysinfo.
    Thanks again!

    Did you solve the problem?
    If not, one last idea...
    Webpin
    Uninstall old sysinfo packages through YAST and install these labeled STABLE from the link (just click on gray install button and follow instructions). If this is not helping, report a bug.
    regards

    They're getting there: I can start 'konqueror sysinfo:/', but only maximized, restoring it's original size makes it crash. I'll file a bugreport this evening

    If I start an empty Konqueror, max it, close it, I can call sysinfo:/, if I resize an instance of konqueror, close it and start konqueror sysinfo:/ it crashes

    If you can reproduce this behaviour on konqueror and sysinfo, report a bug with steps what you did to make konqueror crash.
    By me, konqueror and sysinfo work just fine, and versions I am using are:

    kde4-kio_sysinfo-branding-upstream-11.2-5.14
    kde4-kio_sysinfo-11.1.1-68.32
    kde4-konqueror-plugins-4.2.0-39.42
    kde4-konqueror-4.2.1-74.6
    kde4-konqueror-plugins-lang-4.2.0-39.1
