Kile Crashed and caused a signal 6

    I just installed 1.7 from the rpm for Fedora 3 on KDE 3.3 and all went well, but upon opening the software (via GUI) I get a flash and then the signal 6 message. The "backtrace" gives:

    This backtrace appears to be of no use.
    This is probably because your packages are built in a way which prevents creation of proper backtraces, or the stack frame was seriously corrupted in the crash.

    and then a lot of (no debugging symbols found)

    I once was able to open it via the terminal, but then the system hanged on the first window...something about "Note: the User menu..." is open on top and my system hangs.

    I hope there's a nice solution.

      Try installing from source, it could be that the rpm wasn't a perfect match for your system.

      Without any more details it is hard/impossible to tell what is wrong.

      I had some problems compiling (AMD64 libraries I think were the problem) but fixed it by using the following:
      (Borrowed somewhat from

      1) go to /usr/lib64/qt-3.3 and do "ln -s lib lib64" to create a symlink from /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib to /usr/lib64/qt-3.3/lib64.

      2) ./configure --enable-libsuffix=64 --prefix=/usr --with-qt-dir=/usr/lib64/qt-3.3

      then, make and make install...

      I look forward to using the software! Thanks!
