whenever I load a WMS with QGIS 0.8 (MacOSX) version, I can do the lookup of the GetCapabilities but when I select one layer to include it in the project, QGIS crashes.

Here is a example WMS I tried with:

I can connect and get the list of layers, but when I select one or more layers for the project and press "Add", QGIS (MacOSX) crashes.

Here is some system information:
Mac OS X 10.4.8 (8L127)

CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (3.3)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 1 GHz

Confirmed in 0.8 release. Works in unstable (HEAD) version.

#2 Updated by Tom Elwertowski about 17 years ago

A workaround is to hide the toolbar or just resize it so that the WMS icon is hidden. It is then possble to open a WMS layer without crashing. There will still be some cosmetic problems when resizing the layer.

The problem redrawing the layer is the same in 0.8 and 0.9. Although the crash seems to occur only in 0.8, the fix for crash and redraw is the same and not simple.

#3 Updated by Marco Hugentobler about 17 years ago

I recently found a G4 Mac at our institute and compiled qgis 0.9 on it. I noticed that with QGIS 0.9 and Qt 4.2.3, WMS works with QGIS on Mac, while it crashes for 0.8 (binary package). My guess is that it depends on the Qt version. Could someone else try with Qt4.2.3 / QGIS 0.9 on Mac and confirm?
