After complaining about not having libgc and give it just that, now I get this:
inkscape: symbol lookup error: inkscape: undefined symbol: g_option_error_quark
Will trying to compile the source be worth it or will it be a waste of my time????
A number of people have reported this same problem.
I think there may have been an error in how the rpm packages were created.
Due to this and a few other issues people have encountered, we will be releasing a 0.42.1 version within a week or so, so stay tuned.
Meanwhile, if you're anxious to try 0.42, you might be able to get it built from source. I don't know how hard that would be, but we haven't had many complaints about building from source, so that is a good sign.
Thank you for trying to help.
I did spend some time on compiling the source. Over and hour work by the time I had everything I needed.

If you can reproduce this crash, please file a bug at www.inkscape.org
with a detailed description of the steps leading to the crash, so we can fix it.
Even the viewer seg faults with its own example files.
As any good OpenSource supported would, I did what it sugests. I filed the bug report only to find out it was reported back in May and it hasn't even been assigned yet. It is bug #1248399.
This is as far as I am prepared to go for now. I can see this project has a long way to go still. Maybe I'll revisit it next year.

This package works on both of my systems.
