OESF Portables Forum _ Ubuntu _ Zubuntu Working - Mostly - Except Pidgin

Posted by: zmike Jan 13 2009, 08:52 PM

I managed to get zubuntu working - mostly on my SL-C860 with some tweaks, edits and manual IP address.
Pidgin unfortunately segfaults whenever it is run - I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling with no luck.
Not sure about that one but otherwise it looks great!

Same here, I am afraid. Though I can live without, the repositories are full of messaging tools smile.gif

have you tried running it with "strace" to see what happens in the run-up to segfaulting?

Its quite a long output but the error might be related to:

open("/usr/lib/gconv/gconv-modules.cache", 0_RDONLY) = 3

After that it has a few lines, a "close(3) and then the dump.
Any help?

I really don't know what I'm doing here with this but I saw that the gconv-modules.cache had a much earlier timestamp than other files so I renamed it and tried again. Still segfaults.
There are references to "no such file or directory" for a few locations such as:
/user/share/locale/locale.alias
/etc/selinux/config
/selinux

The last few lines are:

Could there be dependencies that aren't met?

on my zaurus, pidgin runs perfectly but I have a problem with msn : no valid SSL

If pidgin didn't/doesn't work, does finch? (the cli version of pidgin)

pidgin runs on jaunty (9.x) but not on hardy (8.10).
