What I did?
1) install the plugin and dependencies
2) run kate and enable the plugin
3) open plugin settings
4) and I have kate crash (segfault):
kate(22266)/Kate (App) KateConfigDialog::slotCurrentPageChanged: creating config page
KCrash: Application 'kate' crashing...

uname -r: 3.10.10-1-ARCH
clang: 3.3
Qt: 4.8.5
KDE: 4.11.00
Kate: 3.11.0


Hmm... do you have a backtrace?


Here is the backtrace from gdb:
I have a backtrace from valgrind also, but it crashed on start the application =)
Now Im trying to compile kate with debug flags and send to you additional backtraces if it will need


yep, compiling w/ debug symbols will help to discover exact location instead of

#0  0x00007fffe3f79fea in ?? () from /usr/lib/kde4/
#1  0x00007fffe3f7e3b1 in ?? () from /usr/lib/kde4/
#2  0x00007fffe3f8fee9 in ?? () from /usr/lib/kde4/
#3  0x00007ffff645bea2 in ?? () from /usr/lib/

to do so just run cmake -DCMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=DebugFull <path-to-sources>


and FYI I can run valgrind on kate (w/ this plugin enabled) w/o any crash... it seems smth wrong in your system


tnx for reply. Here is gdb log from kate which compiled with DebugFull flag:
I found that valgrind crashes on load this plugin.
And when I compile the plugin with the same flag, there was not error =) Default compile flags in ArchLinux are:
There is the error when compile with Debug or Release flag.


There isn't error on kate and the plugin both compiled with DebugFull flag only...


the bug confirmed :( I'll fix it when get some free time (hope soon)
