I installed skychart on Mageia 2 64-bits with KDE and when I run skychart, I see a white window and nothing happens more. I get these messages in the terminal
>2012-06-02T23:01:19.426 Start trace

I waited some minutes and I had always these white window.
A user of Mageia said on French forum that he has the same problem with Fedora. He installed new version (3.6, the packaged version is 3.4) and he has not this problem anymore. Maybe we should package this version and provide it for Mageia 2.
Skychart 3.4 even doesn't compile at Mageia 2 (3.6 does). As far as I remember an update of Lazarus and/or fpc is the reason (at Fedora).
Matteo, is this one for you? I'm looking into this report too atm, but you are the listed maintainer :-)
Remco, feel free to help me maintaining this package and handling its bug reports, too :-)
However I'm working to a possible patch for skychart-3.4 before ask for version update in mga2.
Package skychart-3.4-1.1.mga2 will be available soon in core/updates_testing.
* it should solve this issue
* it drops wikidoc subpackage causing failures at package build-time
Do some tests, please. I'm going to open the update validation request.
Working to restore wikidoc (wiki documentation) subpackage.
Wait for skychart-3.4-1.2.mga2 before other tests.
Package skychart-3.4-1.2.mga2 available in core/updates_testing.
* documentation subpackage (skychart-wikidoc) restored
* includes previous fixes
Do some tests, please. Locally it seems to be working fine.
I have installed the package from testing and it seems to work (no more white screen). The first time I started it though, pressing the empty pull down button (the one below the one reading Genieva) resulted in an instant crash. Not sure what that is related to...
I'm not experiencing that crash, waiting for more feedbacks before marking this bug report as resolved fixed.
I tested skychart-3.4-1.3.mga2 on Mageia 2 64-bits and white screen has disappear. It works fine for me.
