Thread: KDE apps crashing

    Default KDE apps crashing

    Hello all,

    Been a gnome user for years, but decided to try the latest openSUSE(11.3), looks elegant. However, alot of the KDE apps crash when I went to run them:

    -ktorrent crashes when adding a torrent
    -dragonplayer crashes while trying to play a ASF file (I have restricted extras installed). VLC plays the file fine.

    I also tested another KDE distro (kubuntu), to check and see if it was distro specific, and it's not, same apps in both distros constantly crash when trying to run.

    would like to run native installed apps, but they crash.

    Any ideas?

    What do you mean by "latest openSUSE" ? Is that 11.3 or 11.4 Milestone 3 ?

    Can you tell us some more about your system, see my signature?
    Specially the video card, did you install a driver for it?

    Thank you all for your help in solving this issue.

    @LewsTherinTelemon,

    I tried to install the bug reporting tools, but also received an error. I will need to get the error when I go home this evening.

    @robin_listas,
    I have updated openSUSE, that is usually the first thing I do once installing an OS.

    @phanisvara
    Thanx, I will run this command when I get home this evening and report back the output.

    Just to be clear, it sounds like a 32-bit Network Install initiated by the LiveCD?

    If so, then I think it should be fully updated immediately (or nearly so).

    Especially if this is a brand new install and should mean that you don't have many custom configs and data yet, I'm thinking that after an initial look-around for anything obvious it might be a better use of your time to consider a pave/new install.

    And, although a Network Install is really efficient downloading only what you configure and need it might make more sense in the long run to download the full DVD and install off that...

    IMO,
    Tony
