Description Lamont Peterson 2004-06-17 03:07:49 EDT
Description of problem:
Nautilus crashes at login and will not run when started manually, either.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Version shipped w/FC2 (gnome-2.6).

How reproducible:
Log in.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install FC2
2.  Boot system
3.  Log-in (using Gnome for the desktop)
Actual results:
Nautilus crashes w/a dialog reporting so.  The choices presented are
to try to restart the app or generate a bug report for the
"developers".  However, I can only click on a "Restart Application"
button and a "Cancel" button.  There is no way provided to generate a
"bug report".

There is root window desktop, however the taskbar runs just fine.

When I try to use a nautilus window (for file system surfing), it also
fails in the same manner.

Expected results:
Nautilus in the root window.  Nautilus as a file browsing window.

Additional info:
There is nothing in the logs to be of assistance.

I was able to get nautilus to produce this syslog message:

Jul 12 01:24:40 valkyrie kernel: nautilus[2610]: segfault at
00000002fffffffe rip 0000003a82d2d22b rsp 0000007fbfffeba0 error 4

That is it.  Only the one message each time I try to run it.

strace output when trying to start nautilus

I ran:

strace nautilus 2> nautilus-strace

from within a Gnome Xsession logged in as a standard, un-privileged user.
Comment 3 Lamont Peterson 2004-07-24 16:37:58 EDT
After further research, I found this in the upstream bugzilla for Gnome:


However, as I started to edit the spec file for ORBit-0.5.17 to add
this patch and try it, I found that it was already present.

Therefore, this patch does NOT fix this bug (bugzilla.redhat.com #126181).

New SRPM with fix patch (2.10.0-3)

This SRPM contains a patch (plus minor spec file clean-up) that fixes this bug.

Comment 6 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-27 04:04:09 EDT
Upstream bug report:


Lamont, thanks for tracking the patch down and testing it out - very
helpful. I'll try and get an FC2 update out witht the fix soon.

Actual patch which was committed upstream - includes a union alignment fix too
Comment 8 Mark McLoughlin 2004-07-28 02:53:46 EDT
ORBit2-2.10.0-4 has been pushed to FC2 updates with the fix. A mail
should hit fedora-announce-list soon with the details.

This update can be downloaded from:

Oh, and 2.10.0-5 in rawhide has the fix too.

Thanks Lamont

This seems to fix also bug #123066; at least for me.
