Description nstn1291 1999-11-26 10:43:50 UTC
In Gnome, invoking the menu item Internet > RH PPP Dialer causes an immediate "segmentation fault". I have downloaded and installed all the rpm packages that are supposed to correct this problem. After the error message appeared I invoked gdb - the resulting output follows: [root@Learn /root]# gdb /usr/bin/rp3 GNU gdb 19991004 Copyright 1998 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Comment 1 nstn1291 1999-11-26 10:48:59 UTC
I also have Red Hat 6.1 installed on a slower 486 machine. rp3 and rp3-config seem to work correctly there. gedit fails on both systems when invoked with a file name in the command line. gnome-help-browser fails sometimes. If I delete all the ".gnome*" directories it settles down and works as expected.
Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-11-30 15:56:59 UTC
The gnome-help-browser and gedit problems you are seeing cannot be in any way related to this. Please file separate bugs, including back traces, for those two. Please try the test release ftp://people.redhat.com/johnsonm/rp3/rp3-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm and report whether it fixes this problem for you.
Comment 3 nstn1291 1999-12-01 00:29:59 UTC
You emailed rp3-1.0.2-1.i386.rpm to me. I installed it and it seems to have corrected the problem. At least the program now brings up its dialogue windows and seems to have reasonable actions. I will experiment with it a bit more to see if everything is working as it should. This will take a day or so. Initial signs are good. Thanks very much.
Comment 4 Michael K. Johnson 1999-12-01 20:53:59 UTC
I've marked this as resolved in RawHide because 1.0.2 is currently available via RawHide, but we will be releasing an update (probably numbered 1.0.3) as an errata release later, with more fixes than 1.0.2. In the meantime, this is fixed for you -- I know this particular bug and it either shows up or it doesn't... So if you find more bugs, please report them separately rather than appending them to this report. Thanks!
