Hi all,

I've succeeded in compiling a cvs snapshot (02/05/2001)
from gnucash 1.5.x last night... with difficulties.

I had to comment a lot of lines of code (around #if USE_GUPPI)
in gnc_html.c (between lines 580 and 700). I had the same kind of
compilation failures as the one Richard -Gilligan- Uschold reported
on the ML (02/03/2001).
I have Guppi 0.35.2 installed (glade 0.5.11, Guile 1.4,
 Gnome 1.2, libxml2-2.2.10), but have not been able to see anything
going from Gnucash to Guppi (all the reports crashed :( )

While running gnucash I faced a few troubles:
-> latest cvs is very very slow and often hangs while loading a file
   [ in this case: no CPU consumption, gnucash simply seems to hang
     and wait for something??? doing a few Ctrl-C in xterm from which
     gnucash has been launch seems to make it restart?
     I attached to this mail a backtrace from gdb, from where it seems to hang
-> it also hangs [same symptom, same solution: Ctrl-C] while creating a new
   account (before the account window shows) in a empty file.
-> no report runs (see reports-failed.txt in attachment), while selecting a
   report in the menu, it simply send a message and crashes (no core)
-> while selecting demo->guppi->something in the help window, it crashes (no
   but glib/gtk message)
-> there is still troubles whith accented characters and XML-format
   (reported to the list, Dave Peticolas and Rob Browning in december)

And I have a few questions:

-> I've read on the list about a new Quicken like window, where can I
   access that one? is it operationnal?is it in cvs?
-> what is the 'action' field in the transaction editor (journal mode) for?

And now a few very good points:

-> the work that has been done around the transaction editors (journal mode,
   general ledger,...) is great and makes double-entry accounting more obvious
   in gnucash
-> the help system is really good!

Hope this will help.
