Comment 1 Alexander Larsson 2003-01-31 11:17:51 UTC
It doesn't seem to do that on my machine, although its not an upgrade.
Can you try upgrading to the latest versions of: yelp, gtkhml2 and libgnome from

If that doesn't help, could you start yelp in gdb and get a backtrace from where
it segfaults?

Comment 2 Miloš Komarčević 2003-01-31 12:27:14 UTC
Upgrading to rawhide packages did not help.
I have:

The backtrace is already available in GNOME's bugzilla:

Comment 3 Miloš Komarčević 2003-01-31 12:41:28 UTC
I have just seen that there was a newer libgnome in rawhide
that was not available on my mirror.
Unfortunately libgnome- did not help, the result is
the same.

Comment 4 Miloš Komarčević 2003-01-31 12:50:27 UTC
Same with yelp-2.2.0-2 and gtkhtml2-2.2.0-2

Comment 5 Miloš Komarčević 2003-01-31 18:44:27 UTC
I've also figured out that it works if I create a new user
and/or start fresh without any GNOME configuration files,
so it's probably some of the old settings that clash.

Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-03 16:17:53 UTC
Could you attach a copy of the config files that make it crash?

Comment 7 Miloš Komarčević 2003-02-03 19:06:18 UTC
Created attachment 89814 [details]
my configuration file .gtkrc.mine

I have narrowed it down to my .gtkrc.mine 
I've had it since RHL 7.1 and I've also included it
in my .gtkrc-2.0 when I upgraded to 8.0, and yelp
and all other GTK2 apps worked fine...

Comment 8 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 17:12:58 UTC
I also get the crash when i use that as my ~/.gtkrc-2.0. Could possibly be a
gtk+ bug.

Comment 9 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 17:15:19 UTC
Strange. I can reproduce it with this minimal .gtkrc-2.0:

style "default"
  fg[NORMAL] = { 0.0, 0.0, 0.0 }

class "*" style "default"

Comment 10 Owen Taylor 2003-02-19 17:32:36 UTC
Alex: can you get a backtrace with debug symbols?

Comment 11 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 17:47:13 UTC
Ah, this is a libgtkhtml bug that has been fixed in CVS. it was sometimes
unreffing a style to much. I'll build a fixed package.

Comment 12 Alexander Larsson 2003-02-19 18:30:19 UTC
Should be fixed in gtkhtml2-2.2.0-5.
