on a crashing evolution
David Woodhouse: 30 May 2006:
I’ve taken to running Evolution in a loop: while true; do evolution; done
At least I don’t have to keep restarting it every time it crashes now — an event which occurs ten or twenty times daily.
Oh my gosh. So it wasn’t just me then. This weekend I let Evolution run its course, and I restarted it twice when I came to check up on it. I was wondering if all the mail was causing it to crash, but it wasn’t. No OOM messages that I saw in a log, just an empty workspace. I switched back to Thunderbird (which means no convenient way of reading email via ssh exec-ing imapd), thinking maybe it was just me.
Updated Fedora Core 5, on an x86 even. Just about 3 IMAP mailboxes, and several (~4-5) POP boxes. IMAP mail tends to be large…
