    Angry Dia crash

    Hi everybody,

    I am using Dia program to make some presentation. The program crashes so often and though if i forget to save all my work is gone. Is there any fix for this problem? or is there any better program to use?

    regards,
    gem

    i learned this rule from an old man who already had loads of years
    experience with computers, in the early '90s:

    "Save early and often!"
    [Jerry Pournelle <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerry_Pournelle>]

    in most applications Ctrl+s saves..so, it is so simple...just get in
    the habit of hitting Ctrl+s Early and Often.

    sorry i don't have an actual answer to your question of what to use
    instead of Dia, but i might mention that i've not heard crowds of
    folks complain about Dia crashing so often..

    maybe you should have a look at WHY it is crashing...

    if you open a desktop terminal (Konsole or similar) and type in and
    enter dia

    the Dia application should open....LEAVE the Konsole open and if/when
    you get a crash there might be some error messages in the terminal
    that (if copied and pasted back to here) might be useful in
    determining the problem..

    but, you also need to tell us some stuff:

    what version of what operating system do you have installed
    what desktop environment are you using
    what version of Dia are you using
    are you having problems with other applications crashing also, which?

    did Dia (or other) crashes begin right from your initial install of
    the current OS (or Dia)? or did it start after some days, weeks
    months? after an update/upgrade? hardware change? memory addition? what??
