Gaim was working fine until I unmerged all the monolithic packages and emerged the split ebuilds.

then when I run gaim, it would log me in, and crash.

I ran it from console, and got this error message:

Code:

*** glibc detected *** free(): invalid pointer: 0x082ab958 ***
Aborted


So I thought that it could've been glibc that's messing around.

I noticed a newer version, and decided to emerge it.

so now I've got the latest version of glibc.

now when I run gaim again, from console:

Code:

*** glibc detected *** gaim: free(): invalid pointer: 0x082abb58 ***


gaim would freeze during the signon process and:

Code:

Window with title "Signon" is not responding. This window belongs to application gaim (PID=24942, hostname=localhost).
Do you wish to terminate this application? (All unsaved data in this application will be lost.)


How do you get gaim working?

btw, I recompiled it with the newer glibc

p.s. mods, feel free to move this post around

There are a couple of threads about gaim crashing due to invalid pointer. Please try
