A few days ago, I sought wisdom about redis. I've still to get that
working fully and am trying to read the documentation. It's in
markdown format, which I haven't used before. The web lists lots of
possible ways to view (and mostly edit) markdown but most are not
in openSUSE's standard repositories for some reason. So what do
people recommend for viewing markdown files?

In the meantime I picked retext as a simple way to do it and
installed it. But when I run it, it briefly shows the text in a
window and then crashes and dumps core:

There are many slight variants of Markdown. Pandoc, as someone
mentioned, is a possibility. Or just learn to read Markdown. It's
not a biggie.


Thanks Jeffrey and Anton. I've bug-reported it as Bug 1128204. Yes I
can muddle through just eyeballing the text. I already installed pandoc
but want to concentrate on my redis problem, not learning another CLI.
