    Pidgin crashing


    hi, everyone pidgin is creshing it doesn't starts, and when I start from terminal it shows me this:


    [zefas@localhost ~]$ pidgin
    Pidgin 2.5.1 has segfaulted and attempted to dump a core file.
    This is a bug in the software and has happened through
    no fault of your own.

    If you can reproduce the crash, please notify the developers
    by reporting a bug at:
    http://developer.pidgin.im/simpleticket/

    Please make sure to specify what you were doing at the time
    and post the backtrace from the core file. If you do not know
    how to get the backtrace, please read the instructions at
    GetABacktrace ? Pidgin ? Trac

    If you need further assistance, please IM either SeanEgn or
    LSchiere (via AIM). Contact information for Sean and Luke
    on other protocols is at
    DeveloperPages ? Pidgin ? Trac

    any ideas?

    You could try reporting it as a bug, as suggested in the above output. You might also try getting a newer version of Pidgin, the latest is 2.5.4

    I still use an older version. No crashes here, however, a segfault is due to memory allocation issues. A quick google search indicates the newer version has this problem fixed. Suggest: Upgrade or revert to say...2.4x
