How to crash a Linux Notes client ….


My main OS on my private machine is Linux and I love it. I have been workign with Linux for years now and still consider myself someplace int eh steep learning curve as there is a new thing I learn every week.

I also love the notes client on Linux because NOTHING “was” able to kill it – until I tried to create an update site and load in the language packs for German, French, Italian and Spanish for the new spell checker. These need to be integrated using an update site or can also be installed like a locally available widget.

Well, my linux client met it’s match. I run 8.5.1 FP4 on Red HAd workstation 5.5 …. it crashed on me every time. Made no difference if the update site was a local file or on the server.

Has anyone else out there run into this scenario? Ideas and input please.

I have not had the chance to look though all the crash information or turn on debug parameters to get to the root cause – but after I am done with the Webcast I am preparing for the Consultant In Your Pocket series run by Chris MillerĀ  I will go and nail this one down and figure out what caused it. I can never rule out stupid user error, but I like to don my Teflon suite and make sure nothing sticks and I can blame somebody else ….
