Question Gnucash Crash


Hi

This is a forlorn hope I'll get the answer to my problem here but I cannot find a specific Gnucash Forum.

I have been using gnucash for years and never had any problems but now every time I try to load it it crashes upon trying access an account.

The sequence is that it first tells me it cannot get a lock on ANY of my files reporting that they may be in use by somebody else; this is impossible. However when I do load it the initial list of accounts installs. However when I try to open any specific account Gnucash crashes.

I am using Mepis 8.0 and Gnucash 2.2.6 directly from the repositories. I have removed it and reinstalled it but to no avail. I have tried to install version 2.2.9 as a tar file but I keep getting dependency errors despite the fact the files are installed.

Has anyone else encountered this problem?

Gnucash Crash

Hi

This is me again with some additional information. I have now found out the problem is a segmentation fault; whatever that is; I found some helpful hints to try to identify what was going on and the following is the result of a bug trace.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
[Switching to Thread 0xb5fb76b0 (LWP 31877)]

While this appears to be helpful it's double dutch to me. If anyone can cast some light I will be extremely grateful.
