[gnome-inform7-6L02-1.fc20.x86_64 - bugreport] crash!

I just installed inform7 on Fedora, and it just plain crashes as I try to use it.

I get the Welcome box, select “Start a new project”, select “New story”.

It now asks me for author name, name of project and directory to save the project.

My name is already there, the name is blank and the directory is “(None)”.

As I select a directory, any directory, it just dies. No message, no anything. It just goes away.


$ uname -a
Linux thinkmachine 3.15.8-200.fc20.x86_64 #1 SMP Fri Aug 1 00:38:50 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

You should report this on the bug tracker: inform7.com/mantis/

Thanks for the suggestion Dannii.

I guess this means most people around here uses computers from the fruit company, since it’s a very serious bug. I mean, lots of people would know about it…

I checked the bug tracker, and there is already a bug filed for this: inform7.com/mantis/view.php?id=1254

Why on earth have someone compiled and built this on gtk2? That’s ancient!

Well, there is a workaround in that ticket. Worth checking out if you come here with the same trouble I had.

Once again, thanks to Dannii for the pointer!
