Description Gregor B. Rosenauer 2010-06-18 22:04:50 UTC
Application: digikam (1.2.0)
KDE Platform Version: 4.4.4 (KDE 4.4.4)
Qt Version: 4.6.3
Operating System: Linux 2.6.34-0.slh.9-sidux-amd64 x86_64
Distribution: Debian GNU/Linux unstable (sid)

-- Information about the crash:
When starting up digikam, the splash screen shows and it starts scanning (remote 
SMB-mounted) albums, then after 1-2s it crashes, everytime.

My photo album is located on a local samba server running the same OS as my client (Sidux Hypnos), mounted via autofs.

Before the crash, Nepomuk brings up a notification that the "redland database driver" cannot be found.

It always worked before, so maybe it is really related to Nepomuk.

The crash can be reproduced every time.

 -- Backtrace:
Application: digiKam (digikam), signal: Segmentation fault

Crash come from Exiv2 library. Which version you use. Go to Help/Components Info for details...

Which camera you use ? Nikon ? Try to update to last Exiv2 0.20.0

Please test with a recent version of digikam (>= 1.7) and, most importantly, with a recent libexiv2 version.
Comment 5 caulier.gilles 2011-07-06 10:51:42 UTC
We need feedback here...

Comment 6 caulier.gilles 2015-07-03 06:00:02 UTC
New digiKam 4.11.0 is available.


Can you reproduce the problem with this release ?

Comment 7 caulier.gilles 2016-07-03 07:04:49 UTC
With digiKam 5.0.0, this problem is not reproducible.

I close this file now. Re-open it if necessary.
