gnome-help crashing?

Whenever I touch "help" on any gnome app, I recieve errors. Is this a bug? How is yours?

Re: gnome-help crashing?

I started to use Gnome yesterday and I experienced the same problem.
Maybe it is a bug.

What errors? I don't receive any errors on my system, except for the "Help" in the right-click popup menu in the gnome panel, which is caused by the missing gnome2-user-guide package on my system.

Same problem with yelp here:

$ yelp
I/O warning : failed to load external entity "/home/mythos/.gnome2/yelp-bookmarks.xbel"

... and then it dies.

Re: gnome-help crashing?

As my gnome started hopping from bug to bug, I decided to go the hard way: updating my gnome stuff to testing.

Now the things go well. But I am not very lucky, how gnome packages are handled. Arch's gnome is very incomplete, and rough.

Re: gnome-help crashing?

Yelp don't crash anymore and the error message I mentioned seems to be not critical.

A run with strace

strace yelp

resolved something suspicious:

[...]
open("/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox-1.0.3/libgkgfx.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox-1.0.3/libxpcom.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
open("/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox-1.0.3/libplds4.so", O_RDONLY) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or directory)
[...]

But installed Firefox is 1.0.4.

After removing the orphaned directory (/opt/mozilla/lib/firefox-1.0.3) yelp starts as expected.
