Description Andrew Conkling 2005-01-05 08:02:07 UTC
I have emerged qalculate-gtk but it will not run usably; the interface is presented but none of the buttons/menus work and the process takes all of the CPU. I've thought about recompiling with lower CFLAGS, but I don't know which package (including dependencies) might be at fault.

Comment 1 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) 2005-01-06 01:30:21 UTC
Please give qalculate-0.7.1 a try. If there's trouble with old qalculate-gtk we should perhaps mark the new one stable, even if not much tested. Please give it a try and report.
Comment 2 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) 2005-01-06 06:31:25 UTC
Maybe the test-request status fits better here...
Comment 3 Andrew Conkling 2005-01-06 18:32:54 UTC
Well, qalculate works now, but the problem remains if I try to update the exchange rates (which it asks on the first time). But that only happens if I try it in the GTK version; if I do it in the command line version, it updates fine. My guess is that the older version tried to update exchange rates automatically and that that was a problem. At this point, I'm assuming the problem is upstream? Can anyone confirm? (I'm not marking this verified as I left it requesting a test. ;)
Comment 4 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) 2005-01-07 01:17:59 UTC
Works fine for me in the gtk version. The output in the terminal from where I started it looks like it's using wget. Do you get something there when you try to update? strace -o log -f qalculate-gtk could also be helpful.
Comment 5 Andrew Conkling 2005-01-07 21:23:03 UTC
Created attachment 47915 [details] Qalculate log from strace I'm not sure how this will be helpful, but here's the entire thing, up until I killed the process.
Comment 6 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) 2005-01-09 23:17:21 UTC
Very strange. Perhaps there's a broken file from an older version around? Please rm -rf ~/.qalculate* and try again.
Comment 7 Andrew Conkling 2005-01-10 12:38:08 UTC
Nope, same deal. So CFLAGS are not the issue?
Comment 8 Patrick Kursawe (RETIRED) 2005-03-10 12:45:14 UTC
This is not exactly resolved... re-opening.
Comment 9 Olivier Fisette (RETIRED) 2005-06-05 05:58:23 UTC
I'll make new ebuilds for libqalculate, qalculate-gtk and qalculate-kde today (version 0.8). Once they are in Portage, maybe you could check if the bug is still there?
Comment 10 Olivier Fisette (RETIRED) 2005-08-13 11:19:02 UTC
No feedback, and no one else has ever had this problem, as far as I can tell.
Comment 11 Andrew Conkling 2005-08-13 18:46:09 UTC
...And I'm not on Gentoo anymore. I will say though... I appreciate that y'all are diligent about not letting bug reports just sit there indefinitely. Kudos.
