Description kazadi 1999-06-07 17:23:39 UTC
I am running RedHat 6.0 on an X86 platform configured as
such:

I686 Pentium II 400 Processor
Asus P2B Motherboard
128 Megs memory
Diamond Viper V550 Video card
Creative labs AWE64 PNP sound card
Two 4 GIG IBM SCSI HD's
One 9 GIG Seagate SCSI HD
On board 7890 SCSI controller.

With this configuration, every time I try to change my
keyboard type in the XF86Setup GUI it crashes the app ans
causes an application core dump.

Should you need me to send you a copy of the core, please
let me know and I will be happy to.

Thank you,
Kamran Azadi

Confirmed in test lab, switching from 101-key to 104-key keyboard.

Output of gdb is as follows:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x402ed55c in chunk_free (ar_ptr=0x305, p=0x81d7748) at malloc.c:2960
malloc.c:2960: No such file or directory.

->Run through an XF86Setup as follows:
GNOME Terminal
su
XF86Setup
Yes (reconfig)
Keyboard
Make Caps Lock an Additional Control
Apply
->at this point XF86Setup gets a Segmentation Fault
and dumps a core file. However, the requested change
does take effect.

I'm also getting a core dump from FX86Setup at the end when or before
it attempts to write a new XF86Config file.  Xconfigurator works fine,
however.

we do not support XF86Setup, as we ship Xconfigurator instead.  XF86Setup will
be removed from the next version of Red Hat Linux.
