Thread: KDE apps crashing

  1. #1

    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?

    Here you go, hope this helps. I installed the nvicia driver through yast. I may remove them from yast and reinstall via the 1 click install.

    Hey there,

    You can launch the app from the command line and you will then see the ouput sent to standard out and standard error - this may well reveal what the issue is. Also, when the app crashes, you may be presented with the KDE bug handler, which can attempt to collect information (a back trace) of the crash. This is some helpful when you have debugging symbols for the libraries used by the app. There is a great guide for how to create useful crash reports available at: Development/Tutorials/Debugging/How to create useful crash reports - KDE TechBase (This gives data for the most popular distros, not just Suse.)

    Cheers,
