I didn't expected otherwise.
I just want to see the log content!

Unless I can do something different, running yate-qt4, as above, doesn't seem to create a yate-qt4.log:

Since vector 7.0 runs slackware 13.37, which is getting a bit long in the tooth, I tried 4.2.0 and it didn't give me a segmentation fault.  Yeah!  But it won't load as it doesn't find all necessary libraries.  So I loaded 4.3.0 again, which didn't work (segmentation fault).  Then I reinstalled 4.2.0 figuring I would try to find the right libraries and now 4.2.0 gives a segmentation fault.

I see there is a yate 5 out now and I will try it as soon as I find a slackware version.

There is no need to paste the output.

I was asking for the log file.
It is created?
If so, can you show it?

marian,

no yate-qt4.log file is created when I run yate-qt4.  There is no yate-qt4.log file on my computer.

Crazy problem it is.  I guess I will quit.  I don't think the problem is with yate, as I indicate above.  There is just something wrong with my system and I hate to reload cause I always break this or that.  What I have done instead is to install yate on a different laptop running a little later version of slackware (14.0).  Yate works fine on it, so absent some miracle solution, I will slowly.move my programs over to the other computer and use it.   And in the interim, carry around two laptops.  Bummer.

Does the log file exists?

I tried yate this morning on the new Vector Linux B3 64 bit, now out for beta testing and got the very same error, the error that prompted me to post here in the first place.  So here's the story:

1.  Yate worked just fine on my samsung RF511 runniung Vector Linux version 7.0 until a couple of months ago.
2.  Yate stopped working.  Or, perhaps more accurately, the yate gui stopped loading.
3.  Tried yate (from slackbuilds.org) on my lenovo laptop running Vector Linux version 7.1 this morning.  Gui still won't load.
4.  Yate runs fine on my Dell 260 laptop running Debian linux.
5.  Both my samsung and lenovo are about a year or two old.  The Dell is probably 7 years old.

Any Sherlock Holmes out there?

 :)Well I give upalmost gave up.  Tried yate on debian and it worked fine.  But I don't use debian.  Tried it on salix, another slackware based distro and it worked fine for a while, but, as with vector linux, eventually stopped loading. So I am going to try qutecom or linphone. But, trying other things (such as deleting some of the foreign languages in calligra for heavens sake, and God only knows what else, yate started working again.  I am using yate 5 (updated with new version on slackbuilds.org).  I will report back if it stops working again.  I looked into how to get yate to listen on a different port, but gave up on that as this port business is pretty complicated. Anyway, my persistence here is some testimony to the virtues of yate.  I would not have bothered for so long otherwise.
