Description Stuart D Gathman 2014-08-01 20:53:04 UTC

Screenshot of hung/looping mines

Description of problem:
infinite during game play

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. play game
2. rarely, infinite loop results - screenshot attached

Actual results:
screen freezes with 100% CPU after clicking on square

Expected results:
normal play

Additional info:
Yes, I could'a, should'a, would'a gotten a core dump with kill -6.  But I didn't.  I'll try to remember next time.  If there is a next time.  I did get a screenshot.

Comment 1 Stuart D Gathman 2014-08-01 20:56:08 UTC
Notice the empty square at the upper right.  That is where I had just clicked.  (50/50 of hitting a mine, but might as well find out right away.)

Yeah, if this happens again, could you please post that core dump: that would be super.

coredump tarball for gnome-mines loop

What do you know!  It looped again.

This is the tarball abrt sent to backtrace server.

Comment 4 Stuart D Gathman 2014-08-06 22:49:55 UTC
This time I forgot the screenshot.  Sigh.

Comment 5 Michael Catanzaro 2014-08-07 01:14:34 UTC
Aaah I have a x86-64 machine so I can't do anything with the coredump as-is; could you please get a stack trace from it and post the stack trace? You can follow the instructions at [1] if you don't know how to do this. Thanks!

A link to the ABRT server report might suffice, but the full backtrace would be better.

Comment 6 Michael Catanzaro 2014-08-07 01:17:42 UTC
[1] doesn't mention it, but the command I'd like you to run inside gdb is 'bt full'. Run this on the 25.5 MB coredump in that folder:

gdb gnome-mines coredump
bt full

Comment 8 Michael Catanzaro 2014-08-13 02:45:09 UTC
Seems unlikely that we're looping in that thread. :/  'thread apply all bt full' might help; I should have asked for that the first time. (But to be honest, this looks bleak. :(

If you have a GNOME Bugzilla account, you can CC yourself on https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=734700

thread apply all bt full

That thread is the only one running.  The others are sitting on poll().  I'm pretty sure the game was about show me I had clicked on a mine, and the loop is in gtk, or perhaps free space is corrupted and loop is in free().  When it happens again, we'll see if it is looping in the same place.

running thread

Here is another dump of the loop.  There was only one running thread.  The rest were at poll().

Comment 11 Fedora End Of Life 2015-05-29 12:32:31 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '20'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 12 Fedora End Of Life 2015-06-29 21:54:02 UTC
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
