Description Joseph S. Atkinson 2009-05-05 04:10:01 UTC

The problems with KompoZer aren't limited to any specific architecture. Both i386 and amd64 also crash when menus are selected as well. This appears to be a known issue with more recent GTKs, and it doesn't look like upstream intends to fix it.

This port, however, is not dead, as they are actively working on an upcoming 0.8 which hypothetically will not not have any issue with modern GTK editions. Until some progress is made to fix this, or 0.8 comes along, mark BROKEN across the board to save people the headache and disappointment building/using and unstable product.

Install kompozer (ports or packages, any arch), start playing with the menus. Crash will occur on nested menus, where the majority of features and usablity are.

  - Mark BROKEN: KompoZer 0.7.10 is not compatible with
    GTK 2.14 and higher, hence the crashes.
