Yes, it was working on Magiea 5 and every previous version. Trinity works with Mageia 6 on my laptop, but not my desktop PC, so the basic disto integration is OK, except for the missing symlink (easily solved...). The packages were installed using the official Trinity repository for Mageia, described here: https://wiki.trinitydesktop.org/Mageia_Trinity_Repository_Installation_Instructions This contains R14.0.4. I unofficially maintained the Trinity Mandriva packages for a while back in the "early days", but then official packages were put out (which were better than mine), so I stopped. I'm hoping that somebody here can guide me so that I can get a proper crash message out of the startup procedure which might give me a clue as to why this is failing, I've never previously had a case where Trinity crashed one system, but another. There may still be some stray library somewhere that hasn't upgraded, it might be my NFS set up, or it might be in some way hardware dependent. I just can't tell because the backtrace only stays on screen for about a second. I've got a media centre system which is also on Mageia 6, but I never bothered to install Trinity on there, so I might give it a go as a next step to see if it works or not in lieu of suggestions here.
