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.

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.
Maybe the test-request status fits better here...
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. ;)
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.

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.
Very strange. Perhaps there's a broken file from an older version around? Please rm -rf ~/.qalculate* and try again.
Nope, same deal. So CFLAGS are not the issue?
This is not exactly resolved... re-opening.
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
No feedback, and no one else has ever had this problem, as far as I can tell.
...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.
