Was this an upgrade from FC3 or a new install with yum on FC4?

Comment 2 Thilo Pfennig 2005-06-19 23:26:51 UTC
new install. old /home.

Comment 3 Brian Pepple 2005-06-20 01:35:15 UTC
Pretty odd.  I hadn't installed Gnome-blog yet, since loading FC4 last week, so
I tried it this afternoon using yum, and it works fine.  Hmmm.

Looks like this is being worked on upstream
(, so obviously, your not the
only one experiencing this.

I have the same problems. Create a new account, login with the new account,the
gnome-blog works very well.
