segmentation fault

Asked by Rob Larson on 2009-12-18

Hello,

When I attempt to use the k9copy assistant it seems to crash.

Here are the steps that I have done when the application crashes.

Launch k9copy assistant
The program defaults to the correct dvd drive
I select next and thats when it crashes with the following

Application: k9copy (k9copy), signal: Segmentation fault
[KCrash Handler]
#6 Solid::StorageAccess::filePath (this=0x0) at ../../../solid/solid/storageaccess.cpp:62
#7 0x0806d36b in _start ()

I tried to create a crash report but i needed to use gdb in order to see what was happining.

Hi,
I have tried to re-install it several times. I keep getting the same error.

Rob Larson (dewmanstl) said : #4

when i try to use approt-bug it says the following.

rob@xeon:~$ approt-bug k9copy
No command 'approt-bug' found, did you mean:
 Command 'apport-bug' from package 'apport' (main)
approt-bug: command not found
rob@xeon:~$
