gdb backtrace of crash
Description of problem:
A couple of days ago an update to qt5 5.5.0 was pushed to the Fedora update repositories. Since I have installed that update owncloud-client segfaults during startup.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install qt5 5.5.0
2. Install owncloud-client from isv:ownCloud:desktop.repo repository
3. Launch the owncloud-client
Client working fine
I am aware that the owncloud-client is not from the Fedora repositories. So I have first reported this bug upstream int the owncloud client's bug tracker . I was asked there to report this in Fedora as well, because OpenSUSE doesn't have this crash even though they also work with qt5-5.5.0.
At the time I updated to qt5 I was still running owncloud-client 1.8.4. Meanwhile version 2.0 has been released. I also tested that version and it also results in the same crash.
I have uploaded my crash report to the ABRT server  if that's helpful. Abrt didn't want to create a bug report in bugzilla (likely because oc-client is not a fedora managed package).
I'll also attach the backtrace I got from running the owncloud client under gdb (with debug packages installed).
If you need any more information, please let me know.
I am having the same problem on my two machines, and here is another link to a different bug report with more details:
I would love to help whoever need more info or test some patches, since I want this fixed fast. I depend on ownCloud to sync my work files between my machines and it has been over a week now since this problem started.
I also have this issue, including the latest git 2.0 branch of owncloud with the "potential workaround" for the context menu fix (which did NOT work for me, still segfaulted.)
Upon downgrading qt5-qtbase with --allowerasing, owncloud magically started working again, so it is clearly one of the packages related in the downgrade.
Also seeing this exact issue, and downgrading Qt to 5.4.1-15 removes the issue.
Same issue also applies to seafile-qt (third party).
After installing "vanilla" Qt from http://www.qt.io/download-open-source/
there is no crash.
This leads me to believe the problem may be in Fedora tweaks to the standard packaging.
This may be a duplicate of bug 1255902.
Owncloud client bug 3656 mentioned the same issue as cause earlier today.
I'll mark it as depending on bug #1255902 for now
Anyone able to test if kf5-frameworkintegration-5.13.0-2.fc22 fixes the issue or not?
I'm willing to test this. Is there an easy way to get the packages installed straight out of bodhi or koji ?
Was recently been added to
but not pushed to -testing repo yet.
Direct koji link,
I apologize for not making myself clear enough. I did find both links myself. However the bodhi page lists 20+ packages. kf5-frameworkintegration can't be installed on its own, it requires several other packages.
So I was hoping there would be a simple command to install all of them instead of manually composing a
dnf install url1 url2 url3 ...
dnf --enablerepo=updates-testing kf5-*
sorry, that's incomplete, once you've done *that*, then you can manually update kf5-frameworkintegration via the koji link
I have just installed the updates and rebooted and can confirm the owncloud client works fine with the updated kf5-frameworkintegration. No more segfault at startup for me.
Let's mark it as a dup then
