Package:           kdevelop
Version:           1.4.1 (using KDE 2.1.1 )
Severity:          normal
Installed from:    Red Hat Linux 7.0
Compiler:          gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.1 2.96-79)
OS:                Linux 2.2.17-8smp i686
OS/Compiler notes: 

I've force-installed kdevelop once, because I hadn't all required libs. Obviously, it didn't work (failed when creating a project, called khello), but I've used it to determine what libs were required in order to get it working. After a GNU tools install, and complete KDE 2.1.1 install (all dependencies resolved) I've reinstalled kdevelop, and all is working... I've done "rm -rf khello" and I am doing the following:

1) Select Project -> New -> C++
2) Bring a name to project (khello), and accept the default settings, until you press "Create"
The log says:

Starting with installation
App [Khello] Type [cpp]
unpacking <template.tar.gz> in </home/gus/y/aprenda/khello>...
changing files [cpp]...

And no more... It hangs, but KDevelop health is ok, I mean, no crash. After a long time, I close the window (successfully) and now I am in the KDevelop IDE, without any project opened.

Doing the same, but khello2 instead khello works fine. Well, the real bug is: KDevelop should detect when a project creation fails (without a error message), in order to notify the user, and erase the incomplete-new-app.

NOTE: I'm not really using RedHat. I'm using WinLinux, which is derivated of RedHat (fully compatible, as the authors say), so, I had to download a lot of libs, in order to upgrade kde (from 2.1 to 2.1.1), and all programming packages required by GNU C (g++, make, autoconf, etc).
