Description Xavier Fung 2004-05-11 09:36:35 UTC
Version:            (using KDE KDE 3.2.2)
Installed from:    RedHat RPMs
Compiler:          gcc version 3.3.3 20040412 (Red Hat Linux 3.3.3-7) 
OS:                Linux

Hello.

I have compiled Kstars from source again. This time the compliation went fine with the workaround you previously mentioned in another bug report. However, I have got a SIGSEGV when launching Kstars. I have tried using "gdb $(which kstars)" and got the following output:

[xavier@localhost kstars]$ gdb $(which kstars)

-------------------------------------------------------------------

It seems I have got a segmentation fault. I have tried launching kstars by "kstars --sync --nocrashhandler" and it resulted in segmentation fault.

I am now running Fedora Core 2 Test 3.
Thanks for hunting again!

Please try this again after updating CVS...

Hi,

I am getting SEGV with the same error messages.
kdebase 3.1-12
RH9

Also the file valaava.dat is not there in the package I downloaded. :(

./kstars
QString::arg(): Argument missing: Otherwise, press Cancel to continue loading without this file., valaav.dat

Comment 3 kstars 2005-01-11 05:51:38 UTC
This must be a problem with the reporter's specific setup.  If the reporter could reply with an update (are you still having the problem with more recent 3.3.x code?), I will reopen the bug if necessary.  Works for me.
