stack trace
Comment 2 vvs 2007-10-23 02:12:15 EDT
Downgraded libvirt and libvirt-python to version 0.2.2-4 and everything start to
work again.
Comment 3 Daniel Veillard 2007-10-23 07:27:24 EDT
Stack trace is unfortunately unusable, there is no symbols:
------------------------
/lib/i686/nosegneg/libc.so.6[0x3419b1]
/lib/i686/nosegneg/libc.so.6(cfree+0x90)[0x345060]
/usr/lib/libvirt.so.0[0x46885e]
/usr/lib/libvirt.so.0[0x46a07b]
/usr/lib/libvirt.so.0[0x4419d3]
--------------------------
install the debuginfo packages to provide more details.
The daemon was renamed between 0.2.x and 0.3.x are you sure
you properly sutdown the libvirt daemon before the upgrade
(or downgrade) amd restarted it after ?
Still that should not crash, what platform (i686/x86_64) are you using ?

I've attached GDB backtrace and my /proc/cpuinfo. I've installed i386 Fedora as
shown in this bug "hardware" field, but my CPU is Intel EM64T as you can see in
attached cpuinfo.
