    Default Dolphin crashing after latest update to KDE 4.8.4

    Hi there,

    After the update of a couple of days ago (13th June) Dolphin crashes when right clicking on a file or trying to left click and drag a file to another dolphin pane.

    I disabled nepomuk and the crashing stopped.

    I was wondering if the lib file in today's updates - 2012-06-16 15:52:40|install|libxml2|2.7.8+git20110708-3.8.1|x86_64||repo-update| - would fix the nuisance but it didn't. Dolphin is still happily falling over - even after a reboot.

    IIRC there was a problem once with Dolphin in 4.6x when the file manager would crash due to some problem with strigi and nepomuk.

    It was a known problem and was fixed/healed/cured in the KDE 4.7.x release. The last one - KDE 4.8.3 was fine as well

    I haven't seen any other reports in this forum about Dolphin falling over. Konqueror is behaving OK.

    I am running a 64BIT install and these are the repos I use

    Code:
    zypper lr

    FWIW

    Dolphin seems to be stable if in
    Nepomuk/Strigi Server Configuration
    only Enable Nepomuk Semantic Desktop
    is enabled

    At least then file name searching is functional

    This seems to be the same issue that crashes kmail and the solution (posted in another thread) is to install the soprano packages (2.7.56) from the unstable repo.

    Using 12.2 M3 updated to kde 4.8.4

    My install is very stable!

    should there be any worries over the following output of cmd?
    thanks in advance for any reply, I'm just a little nervous over the soprano packages.

    Lightbulb Re: Dolphin crashing after latest update to KDE 4.8.4

    I had the same problem with Dolphin always crashing about 4-6seconds after starting it after the updated. I used Konqueror for 2-3 days instead, waiting for further updates (which did not happen). So I blindly tried to resolved it by deleting everything with the name *dolphin* below .kde4. No problems since (about a week or so), Dolphin works perfectly fine now, even after I manually adjusted the settings to my liking again (not much changed from default anyway).
