I submitted two crasher patches for librarian yesterday, rarian seems to
work quite fine on linux now. Three side notes though:
- beagle search in yelp no longer builds as of 2.19.1
- simple search crashes with an invalid pointer somewhere in librarian
- yelp doesn't know how to generate the help index anymore, viewing
normal help files is fine though.
IMHO these things should be working before rarian is used as default
documentation system in GNOME. We're still in the early development
process now, so there's time to fix these things.
I'll file some bugs with more information in the weekend so people can
work on it.
