Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1314975
Executing GStreamer example program freezes machine completely
Last modified: 2017-12-12 06:00:31 EST
Running a fully up-to-date Rawhide (as at 2016-03-05T10:20) and the latest kernel 4.5.0-0.rc6.git2.1. Hardware is a Dell Precision T5400 twin Xeon, with an NVIDIA GT610 using the Nouveau driver. Logging on to a Wayland session.
I compile up the GStreamer gtkglsink.c example from:
gcc `pkg-config --cflags --libc gtk+-3.0 gstreamer-1.0 x11` gtkglsink.c
and then run the resulting a.out, the window appears and then the machine completely freezes requiring a power off reset.
Doing the same thing on a Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon running the same Fedora Rawhide, the code works fine. It would therefore seem to be some combination of Wayland/Nouveau/kernel/NVIDIA card that sees the problem.
I was unsure which component to put this against, kernel was suggested simply because a user space program program should never be able to freeze a machine completely.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 25 development cycle.
Changing version to '25'.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 25 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 25. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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'
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 25 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.
Fedora 25 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2017-12-12. Fedora 25 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no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further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.
