Gnome Panel Crashes on startup [solved]


Recommended Posts

Well, for anyone who cares, the problem was that a patch for another bug in timezone added an empty line to the file, and gnome-panel apparently crashes when the timezone file contains an empty line. Fun. So we have fixed the fix in timezone, and another timezone update will hit soon which contains the original fix without the empty line. Fred's also fixed gnome-panel to be rather more resilient and *not* crash when it finds an empty line in timezone, that might get released as an update too. So at some point in the next few days you'll probably see timezone-2008c-1.4mdv2008.1 in your updates list; you can go ahead and install that one, it's safe. :)
