Calibre crashes on start... sigh.


i've seen this before; at certain times, the openSUSE versions of calibre don't start; must have something to do with library versions they depend on. usually, after a while (new calibre version in the repo) it works again. at present mine works, on openSUSE 12.1, calibre installed from KDE:/Distro:/Factory, version calibre-0.8.23-1.41.x86_64.

a few times, when oS versions didn't work, i installed it from it's creator's website: http://calibre-ebook.com/download_linux

the disadvantage is that it comes without an un-installer, which the author claims is the distro's business to provide. but almost everything installs into /opt, and after installation there's a list of file changes which one can use to undo those changes outside of /opt. not very nice, but in my experience it's been working reliably, unlike the oS version, which goes off once in a while.
