Description David Disseldorp 2017-12-06 16:10:54 UTC
In an LWN article posted at https://lwn.net/Articles/740733/ , Jonathan Corbet (cc'ed) raised the following issue:

  As it happens, the version of Tryton packaged with Fedora 27 is 4.0,
  which is somewhat behind the current release (4.6). It seems
  reasonable to believe that a more recent release might yield better
  results. The openSUSE Tumbleweed distribution packages 4.2 instead,
  but it never proved possible to get past the profile screen with those
  packages installed. One might plausibly claim that support for Tryton
  is not the highest-priority objective for some distributors, at least.

A new version of Tryton (4.2.9, tagged "bugfix release") was just pushed to Factory yesterday (2017-12-05, the same day of article publication). We should confirm whether the issue is still present.

We ship Tryton 4.2 for the compatibility with GNU Health - the latest build for Tryton is available here:

As I have never seen that issue, please submit a verbose error description.

Could be anything, including PEBKAC.

Anyway, Axel, processed your submission.
