Re: [opensuse] Tumbleweed problem --> please help
* Wilhelm Köpper <list@xxxxxxxxxx> [08-04-15 13:02]:
Thanks Marco and Anton, but I am not an expert on opensuse and the stack
trace is not really readable for me. Further thunderbird is not dynamically
linked so ldd doesn't give any information.

/usr/bin/thunderbird just points to the shell script

I think the root cause of the problem could be in the repository
configuration. Could perhaps someone look into my repositories and tell me
if this is all right?

The shell command

strace thunderbird

could be a start point to understand where thunderbird hangs.

Hello together, this is my first post to this list, so please forgive my

I recently upgraded my tumbleweed by a zypper dup and after that

Thank you so much for trying to give us relevant information.
I'm not a tumbweed user but I am still on 13.1 and may end up
tumbleweed-ing. Who knows ...

This is how I'd start to investigate.

I'd look to the version of T'bird in use and find the binary.
I'd use 'ldd' to see what libraries it used and step by step make sure
that those were the ones I had. Perhaps that helps with the question
you posed.

Where I'd go from there depends on what I found.
I might check what happens with other DMs.

As it happens I use KDE as my DM and I also have

zypper lr --url | grep moz
14 | | openSUSE BuildService - Mozilla |
Yes | Yes |

so I know I'm up to date on T'Bird.

As I mentioned in an earlier thread, I'm aggressive about updating.

There is nothing wrong with your repos as you provided.
