So, are you saying it worked before you updated RAM and disk?

Or did you rather do a system reinstallation, and are now getting a new error on a new system?

We'd need:

- your operating system (and version)
- your Inkscape version
- where you got your Inkscape from (download link to the file)
- and step-by-step instructions

Can you help with this problem?
