@hcvv,i am running opensuse 12.1 and kde is what came with it. have not upgraded to 4.8 yet.@caf4926,this is the output from konsole:
KGlobal::locale::Warning your global KLocale is being recreated with a valid main component instead of a fake component, this usually means you tried to call i18n related functions before your main component was created. You should not do that since it most likely will not work Warning: QWidget::insertAction: Attempt to insert null actionWarning: QWidget::insertAction: Attempt to insert null actionWarning: QWidget::insertAction: Attempt to insert null actionviking@Viking:~> KCrash: Application ‘ktorrent’ crashing…KCrash: Attempting to start /usr/lib64/kde4/libexec/drkonqi from kdeinitsock_file=/home/viking/.kde4/socket-Viking.site/kdeinit4__0
Not much help from me I am afraid. Seems to be wrong something inside KDE that has to do with internationalisation (i18n). Thats should of course be a minor point only worth a warning and then the program should continue in a default language.
BTW I have no problem runniing Ktorrent 4.1.0 on openSUSE 11.4.
Another option is, to create a new user, start ktorrent as that new user and see if you get the same crashes. If not, the previous should solve the issue, if it does we would have to make some further investigations.
