    Default Gnucash Won't Start

    I've been using Gnucash for our financial needs since 2003.

    I just installed opensuse 12.1, and now Gnucash won't start (default version from package repo). The console output is:

    Code:

    There's been a few threads on this topic already - there is a known issue
    that is being investigated.

    in gnucash 2.4.8 changelog:
    Bug #655901 - Fix build with guile 2.0

    (version of gnucash in opensuse 12.1 is 2.4.7)

    Upgrading to gnucash 2.4.8 provided by the j-engel repo fixed my problem.

    For me, upgrading to 2.4.8 GNUCash, didn't fix my problem, GnuCash 2.8 in Opensuse 12.1 issues with guile 2.0 What worked for me was in the following: I downloaded/updated the following:
    gnucash-2.4.8-27.6.x86_64.rpm
    guile-2.0.3-36.1.x86_64.rpm
    libguile-2_0-22-2.0.3-36.1.x86_64.rpm

    Hi puregore as you said
    in gnucash 2.4.8 changelog:
    Bug #655901 - Fix build with guile 2.0

    (version of gnucash in opensuse 12.1 is 2.4.7)

    Upgrading to gnucash 2.4.8 provided by the j-engel repo fixed my problem.
    I'm able to run GNCash as I stated, but as said here Discussion about RPM packaging for openSUSE () it seems like some things are not working, I was seeing if this was the same case for you. Are you able to run reports without errors?

    no, reports do not work. I get a very generic error (An error occurred while running the report). I hadn't noticed this until now since I never make use of reports.

    This fixed my exporting report problem as well (comment 16)
    https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=724917

    I emailed dimstar not quite a week ago with a fix for the reports.
    I will reproduce that email content here:


    I found that by commenting out (with ; line 292 of
    /usr/share/gnucash/scm/html-document.scm that I was able to get a few
    reports working. I did not encounter any reports that did not work,
    but I didn't perform an exhaustive check, either.

    Here is the line (commented out).

    ;; (if attr (hash-fold add-attribute #f attr))
    Not sure when a patch will come out, but this works for now.

    Found this post along with others. Started using gnucash shortly after installing openSUSE 10, coming from win98/Quickbooks. Gnucash on openSUSE in my experiences is slow in keeping up with the developers. Fortunately I have just enough knowledge/skill to do the following. . .

    Added download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.4/repo/oss/suse to my software repositories. opened software management and selected 2.4.0-5.3-x86_86 from repo 11.4 conflict resolution was to downgrade guile. Selected downgrade guile and installed.

    Gnucash 2.4.0-5.3-x86_86 seems to be running fine on openSUSE 12.1. . .now.

    This version is also working for me. My previous installation (one of several) used the i586 architecture, so zypper had its work cut out trying to install this version. Ultimately it succeeded so all is well

    I run GnuCash-2.4.8-27.6.x86_64 successfully on openSUSE 12.1
    I saved this rpm-package from 2011-11-15 locally and reinstall it when I unintentionally upgrade GnuCash with other upgrades.
    I think, I found this package/build in the factory-repository in late November 2011.
    This build seems to me as the latest/youngest version which works fine, any other updates resulted in the often described behavior:
    Quick glance on the splash screen and nothing follows, the terminal output is similar to the one posted above.
