The above is now outdated as the Fedora Guys have fixed their qt packages. Just upgrade to KDE 3.4.2 AND the latest qt pkg from their kde-redhat repo normally (using apt or yum) and there should be no problems ( I just did).

I am having these problems under Core 4. Are you using Core 3 or 4? If the latter can you post the versions of KDE base and qt you have installed? Thanks

I'm still on fc3. The versions #'s of the packages I use (you might still find them useful) are:
qt-3.3.4-17.0.fc3.kde
kdebase-3.4.2-1.2.fc3.kde


Might work out for you if you just downloaded the same versions for fedora 4.

Hmmm, the versions look the same:
qt-3.3.4-17.0.fc4.kde
kdebase-3.4.2-1.1.fc4.kde

What I find so exasperating is that I have FC4 installed on a laptop, virtually the same configuration, and I have no problems at all with KDE apps. But on my desktop system they continually crash. I even did a clean reinstall of FC4 on my desktop box hoping to solve the problem to no avail. Grrrr...

What is the cause of the crashes? Is it an error in libkdeui.so? Run a gdb trace & see.

Brief followup

I ran "yum update" tonight and it installed a bunch of new packages, including:

qt.i386 1:3.3.4-17.1.fc4.kde
kdebase.i386 6:3.4.2-1.3.fc4.kde
kdelibs.i386 6:3.4.2-1.2.fc4.kde

as well as two of the KDE programs I was having the most problems with:

k3b.i386 0.12.3-1.0.fc4.kde
kaffeine.i386 0.7-0.lvn.1.4

and my initial impression is the stability problems appear to be solved (my fingers are crossed). So, gdb goes back in the cupboard for the time being.

Thanks in any case for your suggestions.


P.S. I hope FC4 --> FC5 is a little less traumatic.
