Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1284171
ebook-viewer from calibre-2.42.0 crashes when it quits
Last modified: 2016-12-05 13:59:45 EST
After updating calibre to version 2.42 in Fedora 22, ebook-viewer crashes each time it quits.
I tried to send the bug report with abrt, but I get the following error message:
--- Running report_uReport ---
The server at 'https://retrace.fedoraproject.org/faf' encountered an internal error (got error 500)
reporter-ureport failed with exit code 1
('report_uReport' exited with 1)
The steps to reproduce the crash on my computer are:
1. Either open an actual file or even a non-existing file, such as:
2. Press OK, if ebook-viewer complains about missing extension or non-existing file.
3. Quit ebook-viewer.
4. I get a segfault every time I quit.
I have compiled myself calibre-2.44.0 from koji and I get the same error.
BTW, at least version 2.44 seems to use dukpy (https://github.com/amol-/dukpy) to compile calibre. I wonder whether it could be added to koji.
Sorry, Kevin, after more testing segfault seems to have vanished in ebook-viewer-2.44.0.
Just in case it helps.
Can you try this scratch build:

It crashes, but abrt seems to know nothing about these segfaults.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
Argh, still crashes, I just filed it under qt5-qtbase https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1401638 -
