Description Nicholas Parkanyi 2015-08-18 18:28:56 EDT
Description of problem:
Under Fedora 22 on my Samsung Chromebook Midori was constantly segfaulting on webpages using Javascript. Based on the discussion at https://github.com/archlinuxarm/PKGBUILDs/issues/754 I rebuilt the webkitgtk RPM modified so the --disable-jit flag is used when building armv7hl packages. This has fixed the issue for me. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
midori 0.5.10

Steps to Reproduce:
Install midori on Samsung Chromebook (or possibly any other ARM system), browse to any site using javascript (http://midori-browser.org/download/source/ was one that crashed for me).
Comment 1 Tomas Popela 2015-08-24 08:10:02 EDT
can you please provide the backtrace of that crash (or it crashed every time with different backtrace)? Maybe it will be worth fixing than just disabling the JIT at all (and decrease JS performance).
Comment 2 Fedora End Of Life 2016-07-19 15:55:39 EDT
Fedora 22 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-07-19. Fedora 22 is
