When I try to watch pictures with geeqie or gwenview they both crash. Here is the output of geeqie:

../../src/ exif read /home/gnaa/home/gemeinsam/pics/temp/20100115-122401.nef, sidecar: -
Error: Directory Unknown with 35254 entries considered invalid; not read.
terminate called after throwing an instance of 'std::bad_alloc'
what(): std::bad_allo

I don't know if this issue is a bug of exiv or if its a bug of geeqie or another problem.

That's a weird error. Are these applications using exiv2 compiled from SVN? Then you'll also have to re-compile the applications, since the current exiv2 SVN trunk is not binary compatible with 0.19

Yes, they probably use the svn version...
Is there a way that those application use the exiv2 from my distribution but other programms I compile by myself like digikam use the svn version?

Thanks in advance

One way would be to change the soname in config/ before running "make config", then the library can be installed and used alongside the previous version (the development version usually keeps the same soname as the last release). Can't think of a better way right now.

I'm closing this bug now ("not a bug").
