    Question Dolphin Crashes - How to Get Backtrace?

    OS 11.2x86_64, KDE 4.3.1 desktop.

    The Dolphin file manager crashes on me randomly. It does not seem to be connected to any particular operation, but just "goes away" with no warning & nothing in the system logs. Starting Dolphin in a terminal window gives nothing upon crashing, just the prompt comes back (so far, anyway.)

    I've found one thread on Dolphin crashes here: Frequent Dolphin Crashes - openSUSE Forums But I have no idea what nepomuk does, or how to disable it to see if that's part of my problem.

    The KDE crash window comes up, but I have no idea what packages I need to load in order to generate a proper backtrace. Anyone have any idea which -debug packages to load?

    4.3.1 is old, upgrade to 4.3.4 via the STABLE repository:
    Code:
    http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/KDE:/KDE4:/STABLE:/Desktop/openSUSE_11.2/

    It has received several fixes which may help with your Dolphin issues.

    Installed the KDE 4.3.4 packages as above, then gave your suggestion a try.

    The KDE Crash Handler came up after the menu vanished . . . with a seg fault (signal 11) & the following:

    Code:
    Application: System Settings (systemsettings), signal: Segmentation fault

    Well duh, it indeed seems to croak. How annoying.

    Beineri was nice enough to point me to a bug report about it already;

    Why not add to the comments in that Bug report. I did a while ago.

    I hate Bugzilla, incidentally I also hate Wikis so I never fill up the HCL even if I would have hundreds of entries to it.
