Just upgraded to calibre 0.6.17 on Linux (Mandriva 2009.1) using the binary installer method.
Now I can't upload a single book (Sony PRS-505), it immediately segfaults with:
/usr/bin/calibre: line 10: 11603 Segmentation fault $loader "$@"
I've had no problems uploading books with 0.6.16 (or other previous versions).
Any ideas? Is there an easy way to downgrade to 0.6.16 in the meanwhile?
