Upgraded Evo crashes

ddougan
On my SuSE 10.0 system, I have Synaptic installed, and used it last
night to upgrade Evo to 2.4.2-3. I restarted Evo this evening and had it
crash at start-up with the following, when run from a terminal:

des@sempron:~> LC_TIME=en_GB evolution -c mail
/home/des/.gtk_qt_engine_rc:62: error: unexpected character `{', expected character `}'
adding hook target 'source'

(evolution:32416): camel-WARNING **: camel_exception_get_id called with NULL parameter.

(evolution:32416): Gdk-CRITICAL **: gdk_gc_set_foreground: assertion `GDK_IS_GC (gc)' failed
/home/des/.gtk_qt_engine_rc:62: error: unexpected character `{', expected character `}'

I Googled for the GDK error, but couldn't find anything relevant. I did
find that the .gtk_qt_engine_rc error (and another later in the file)
are caused by missing commas, but obviously, these are not related to
the crash.

I'm back up again, by reverting back two versions (the first kept giving
me cpio bad magic errors), but would appreciate any feedback on what the
likely cause is.

Note: although I refer to Evolution, I did also update dependencies via
Synaptic.

Hi Chenthill,

Thanks for your reply. At the moment, I am at the previous version, as I
haven't had an opportunity to re-apply to the failing version.

However, I am still having an issue - as I mentioned, I went by two
versions via synaptic. I then moved up to the next version released for
SuSE (evolution-2.4.0-3.2) via YaST, as this had been the working
version before the one which gave me issues. Now the fun part - this
version fails with "illegal instruction". As i had run before, I got
suspicious and created a test user, under which it ran fine. I then
thought of running GNOME with my own ID (I normally use KDE) and, lo and
behold, Evo also runs fine here (as does Firefox, which is also failing
under KDE, with a seg fault).

Now, as far as I understand it, running Evo under either environment
uses the same .gconf and .evolution settings - is this not so?

I'd therefore be grateful if anyone here could shed some light on why it
works under GNOME, but blows out when run in a KDE environment (not, I
renamed my .kde/share directory to force default settings, by Evo still
failed with the same problem).

Regards,

Des
