Description Grant Goodyear (RETIRED) 2002-01-04 09:19:09 UTC
For some reason evolution-mail segfaults. Specifically, I see evolution segfault when I click on mail and then the mail-settings option.

Ok, have a way of going around the issue (I think). The problem seems to occur if the mailclient crashes before you close the program the first time the configure-database gets corrupted. If you directly after Evolution starts for the first time exits cleanly it seems to be working as it should after that. Can this be confirmed somewhere else?

The shutdown-just-after-starting-the-first-time solution seems to work just fine. Yayyyy!!! Changing severity to minor, now that we have a work-around.

I had this problem and had to login to my IMAP server first before opening mail settings. I'm marking this as fixed since I think it's more of an evolution issue than anything we're doing wrong.

Please don't do this. I am assigned to the bug and I haven't marked it as being resolved since I want to look in to the issue. No other distributions has this problem. I wan't to make sure it's not due to our default -O3 CFLAGS.
Comment 7 Grant Goodyear (RETIRED) 2002-01-07 13:00:08 UTC
Hmmm. I often get a segfault when trying to print from an email, but it doesn't happen all of the time. Worse, I don't see any pattern of when it happens.
Comment 8 JP Sartre 2002-01-19 11:14:09 UTC
Well, I don't know about you guys, but I segfault everytime I try to apply a new filter. Just installed gentoo, so maybe I'm missing something? I can read and delete email fine, just can't add filters. Not sure if this is related or should be a new bug? JP
Comment 9 Mikael Hallendal (hallski) (RETIRED) 2002-01-19 12:19:36 UTC
it's probably not related.
Comment 10 Mikael Hallendal (hallski) (RETIRED) 2002-01-26 11:00:41 UTC
The filter crash is fixed in 1.0.1-r2.

First time installer of Gentoo, I got the iso image last week and finished installing everything yesturday. This Evolution bug still appears to exist. Emerge installed Evolution 1.0.5 and since I didn't exit after doing the wizard the evolution-mail process keeps segfaulting. After removing ~/evolution and following the work around it no longer segfaults but this bug still happens. Should be re-opened.
