Installed Rosegarden 1.4.0 on KDE3.5.5 "release45" on open SUSE10.2 from RPM. Program opens and runs OK and able to play MIDI files. When I start a new track and open it in the notation editor, I get a freeze on inserting the first note. The "laying out staff..." message stays up. I have to kill the application and restart. I found that if I wait for a while - couple of minutes - I can use the notation editor no problems. If I close it and reopen the section of track it freezes as soon as it opens.
Using kernel 18.104.22.168-34-default
My daughter love this program - great work
