    Default Evolution keeps crashing

    I have OpenSuSE Tumbleweed 64 bit installed on my System76 Lemur Ultra Thin (lemu4) notebook PC. I installed Evolution tonight and it keeps crashing when I try to add my one and only Google GMail e-mail account. After I setup my name and e-mail address, I press the next button and it crashes. How do I provide information that will be useful to you to help me to debug this issue? I'd like to switch to Evolution from Mozilla Thunderbird if possible. Thanks for your help.

    I can't help you with your problem except to say the best help with evolution I have seen is at evolution-list@gnome.org. A few of the developers frequent that list and have been a lot of help.

    That is not to say that you won't get expert help here, just that it's another resource.

    Maybe this will be helpful to you:

    You can start the program from terminal/konsole and check what error it
    gives when crashing.
    It might in rare cases solve some problems.
    Mostly it will say seg fault here and seg fault there

    Forget it. I removed Evolution. It's too much of a pain in the butt to fix it.

    I never had problems with Evolution (except my own) on Intel based GNU/Linux systems, but on Sparc OpenBSD, it core dumps every time.
    Have you tried Claws-Mail?

    Not the way to go IMHO. To elaborate: you're running Tumbleweed, which includes GNOME, hence Evolution. My bet is that the culprit is in that area (Evolution from stock repo ...??). If I would be right, the fix would be easy.
    Please also think about how others might look at your next post.
