Re: GnomeSword 2.4.1 crash on Ubuntu 8.10
If you could get a stack trace of the failure, we would appreciate it greatly. Basically, do this:

gdb /usr/bin/gnomesword2
(gdb) r
[ do whatever it takes to make it crash.
when it does, it will stop and gdb will take over again.]
(gdb) bt
[ this gives a "backtrace" ("bt") of what the program was doing at the time.]
[ cut/paste the trace save it for us. ]
(gdb) k
[ to kill the program. confirm with "y". ]
(gdb) q
