Anyway, what you did is called "thread hijacking".

You hit reply on a message to this list dated 2018-12-09, Re: "Leap 15
Packman VLC - no drag'n'drop?", changed the subject and erased the
contents, to post your question. But to many of us it appears hidden as
a reply to that VLC question.

You can see your post here, in the archive - last post of the thread:


Next time, please do not use "reply" to start a new thread, it is

Thank you, Carlos for the heads up and sorry to everyone in this list for

I have no idea why the last message became a "reply" to an old thread. I
definitely used the "New Message" button in Kmail to start the writing. And
have been very confused by the fact that I cannot find the message I sent
my Inbox. I recall that every new message comes up in my own Inbox right
I send it. Anyway, I will try to do better on the mailing list thereafter.

And I do not know you have replied because I have not seen your reply until
use find in my mailbox. I saw a reply coming from Bruno just now. But after
while when I ready to read it, I cannot see it. So I search for it. At that
moment, I realised that I have hijacked a thread.

Then, should I start a new thread from now on on this topic? I asked
because I
received two replies on this topic in this thread.

Well, it would help in finding the post ;-)

Anyway, it seems that java is not the cause of the error. Check the list
of packages (and versions) against that of Bruno. Another resource is
to use strace to try find what the program is doing when it crashes,
there is not enough information.

Just a check. You are using "zypper dup" for the TW updates, not zypper
up or yast?

after calling out the OP for "hijacking" the thread, why do you continue
to compound the problem rather than starting a new thread of requesting
same of the OP? doesn't make sense to continue. you do know better.
