Comment 1 Alex Alexander (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-11-07 22:30:39 UTC
Did you etc-update after updating mc (if its an update)?

Maybe there's some weird folder in your last session that does not exist or contains something that's crashing mc?

Try moving your ~/.mc in ~/.mcOLD to see if it still happens.

This helped.

diff old and new created config conatins, things like:

-[New Left Panel]
-user_format=half type name | size | perm
-user_status0=half type name | size | perm
-user_status1=half type name | size | perm
-user_status2=half type name | size | perm
-user_status3=half type name | size | perm
-[New Right Panel]
-user_format=half type name | size | perm
-user_status0=half type name | size | perm
-user_status1=half type name | size | perm
-user_status2=half type name | size | perm
-user_status3=half type name | size | perm
Comment 3 Alex Alexander (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2009-12-26 13:49:27 UTC
This was probably a bug with mc's config file handling after a version upgrade.

Pretty much a corner case since no-one else has reported any similar issues, so I'm gonna close it as worksforme.

If you encounter this issue again with the latest 4.7.0 final, feel free to re-open the bug.

thanks :)

Reopening to mark as resolved, thanks for the update/link :)
