gimp-2.6.6 from slackware 13.0 rc1 froze the hole system


Anyone has the same problem as the subject? I was just opening some jpg files. I had no chance to check what is the problem? Please how could I debug this even after the system is frozen? I tried to remove gimp-2.6.6 and install gimp-2.4.7 from 12.2 and it did not have the problem.

Sorry gimp-2.6.6, running on Slackware64-current (16/7/09), opening jpg files perfectly here. Could there be a problem with that specific jpg, or perhaps it is very big and you have a flaky memory chip.

I think this is not related to specific image file. And gimp 2.4.7 works without any problem. Need to know how to debug gimp 2.6.6.

I tried this without any luck, gimp 2.4.7 from 12.2 works!

Other observation: Under runlevel 4, gimp-2.6.6 kicked me out of xfce session only, but under runlevel 3, gimp froze the whole system.

Here everything works fine as well... gimp 2.6.6 on slackware64-current.
Tried with small files, large files, jpg, png and others.

It must be something specific to your system

Question problem seems solved after 17th 18th official upgrade

Magically, the problem seems solved after the following upgrade. I wonder why???

The problem was probably with pixman it has something to do with the cairo graphics system. I should have suggested that earlier, but as I had pixman problems and gimp was working on my system, it looked like something else.
