Well.. it is still not working. I even recreated the layer and it just doesn't work. In ArcGIS it did work though.

Thanks. This way it worked. Now i wonder why it didn't work in the "normal" QGIS geoprocessing tools.

comment Issue with dissolving a polygons layer in QGIS 2.4
I used also the Topology Checker plugin. It points out two invalid geometries. I'm not sure (a)why these geometries are invalid, (b)why ArcGIS manage to dissolve the features and (c)how to solve it and make the geometries valid. Any ideas?

Does the "check geometry validity" from 'Vector'-->'Geometry tools' good enough? If it does - i received two issues: 56642,segments 2 and 5 of line 0 intersect at 193231.358638, 653120.298656 56642,Geometry has 1 errors.

Thank you for your answer. The dataset projection was already EPSG:2039 - Israel / Israeli TM Grid when i tried. I assume it should have worked.

Thank you for your answer. I assumed they won't publish a package for Fedora 18. I guess i'll upgrade my system soon.
