While Sodipodi works well on Fedora 7; on my Dell 820 running Fedora 8, any "TEXT" SVG content crashes Sodipodi immediately!
Open an SVG file with a text attribute and content:
This will crash Sodipodi, but <text></text> will not without the content. Only under Fedora 8!
both 220.127.116.11-42.fc8 & 18.104.22.168-63.fc8
Alternatively, open a new empty file with Sodipodi and use the text tool to add text. It crashes upon entering the very first character.
