Replying to jovo@…:

As a workaround I downgraded to gkRellm 2.3.2, compiled from source ftp://ftp.FreeBSD.org/pub/FreeBSD/ports/local-distfiles/ume/

	$ cd /Users/johan/Desktop/gkRellm/gkrellm-2.3.2
	$ gmake DESTDIR=/Users/johan/Desktop/gkrellm-2.3.2 darwin9
	$ gmake DESTDIR=/Users/johan/Desktop/gkrellm-2.3.2 install
	$ cd /Users/johan/Desktop/gkrellm-2.3.2/bin 
	$ ./gkrellm # ok, copied to /opt/local/gkrellm

The same problem has now been reported on the mailing list running on Lion. Was this problem ever reported to the developers of gkrellm?

FWIW it works fine for me on Snow Leopard x86_64.

I'm having the same symptoms as those reported on the mailing list--the crash log indicates that it hits the problem while iterating over the disks.

Should be fixed in commit 207a0519ac73290ba65b6e5f7446549a2a66f5d2 (see attachment or http://git.srcbox.net/gkrellm/commit/?id=207a0519ac73290ba65b6e5f7446549a2a66f5d2). Until 2.3.6 is out I'd recommend to add this as a patch to the MacPorts Portfile.

Btw, for forwarding such bugs to upstream please use the GKrellM mailinglist: gkrellm@…
