GCStar freezes

GCStar 1.6.2
OpenSUSE/Linux
HPCompac computer.

When opening GCStar Moviecollection is active. Trying to change to another type of collection will freeze the program; the only way to continue is to restart the computer. This happens every time I'm trying to run this program.
How to fix the problem?

Re: GCStar freezes

Hello,

Could you please run GCstar from a console, just by entering gcstar there. There should be some error messages when this happens.

The error message is:
"Gtk-WARNING **: Locale not supported by C library.
    Using the fallback 'C' locale. at /usr/bin/gcstar line 324."

Re: GCStar freezes

Restarted gcstar via terminal.
This time there were no error message at startup.
I tried to change to BookCollection. The following message appeared in the terminal window:
"*** unhandled exception in callback:
***   Can't locate object method "getName" via package "GCPlugins::GCbooks::GCPluginAmazon" at /usr/bin/../lib/gcstar/GCPlugins.pm line 51.
***  ignoring at /usr/bin/gcstar line 328."

What to do?

Re: GCStar freezes

If not already done, please first try to update your plugins as described here:

http://wiki.gcstar.org/en/update

Let me know if you still have the issue after the update.

Re: GCStar freezes

Updated operating system to OpenSUSE 12.2.
Started GCstar - same problem as previously.
Updated the plugins.
GCstar now works perfectly!
Thanks for your assistance.

Re: GCStar freezes

All of a sudden the old problem came back, gcstar starting with MovieCollection and freezing when trying to change to something else.
After once more updating my plugins everything works fine again and my "old" BookCollection file now loads automatically at startup - but what made the previously updated plugins just disappear or "how can I prevent the plugins from dropping out?"

Should you have a problem using GCstar, you can open a bug report or request some support on GCstar forums.
