Description L3support 2004-09-29 22:37:42 EDT
Description of problem:
Right after we start up the Security Level Configuration Tool in order
to change the security level of our system, the application freezes.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. start the Security Level Configuration Tool
- select Main Menu Button (on the Panel) => System Settings =>
Security Level 
- type the following command from a shell prompt in a GNOME terminal
 # system-config-securitylevel

Actual results:
The application freezes.

Expected results:
The application do not freeze, and you can change the security level
of your system.

Additional info:
When the application freezed, we got the following message in
Sep 28 14:54:34 <hostname> kernel: htt_xbe(7382): unaligned access to
0x60000000000266bc, ip=0x20000000002e1770
It seems that the above syslog message relates to this phenomenon.
Comment 1 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-30 02:49:55 EDT
Please disable iimf and retest - that looks to me as if it's a bug in
iimf (the htt_xbe daemon is unrelated to s-c-securitylevel).  

Switch to runlevel 3

/etc/init.d/iimf stop
LANG=C startx
open a terminal and
LANG=C system-config-securitylevel

If no freeze occurs, restart iimf, LANG=C startx and try:

LANG=C system config-security-level

Let me know if it freezes with that. 

Please give the version of iimf-server iimf-x and the kernel as well.
Comment 2 Paul Nasrat 2004-09-30 02:51:54 EDT
Please note I mean iiimf and iiimf-server and iiimf-x
Comment 3 L3support 2004-10-04 05:26:32 EDT

I'm very sorry to be late.

I tried your recommendation, and no freeze occured in the case of
But in the case of "LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8", the application freezed.
The detail is as follows.

1. disable iiim (LANG=C)
 # /etc/init.d/iiim stop
 # startx
Open a gnome-terminal.
 # export LANG=C
 # system-config-securitylevel

No freeze occurs.

2. enable iiim (LANG=C)
 # /etc/init.d/iiim start
 # startx
Open a gnome-terminal.
 # export LANG=C
 # system-config-securitylevel

No freeze occurs.

3. LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 (whether iiim is disabled or not)
 # startx
Open a gnome-terminal.
 # echo $LANG
 # system-config-securitylevel

The application freezes with the following message in /var/log/messages.
Oct  4 15:56:08 <hostname> kernel: htt_xbe(18374): 
unaligned access to 0x60000000000266bc, ip=0x20000000002e1770

And the version of the related packages is as follows, 

Best regards.
Comment 4 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-04 06:51:38 EDT
Reassigning to iiimf source component im-sdk.
Comment 6 L3support 2004-10-06 06:50:46 EDT

What information do you need? Current status is 'NEEDINFO', though. 

Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2004-10-06 07:54:05 EDT
Is it possible you could try the latest im-sdk build
in testing now: currently it is iiimf-*-12.0.1-12.svn1943.
They contain some 64bit fixes amongst other things.
Comment 8 L3support 2004-10-07 06:26:40 EDT

Thanks. I'll try your advice later.

Has 'iiimf-*-12.0.1-12.svn1943' been already released?
And, Do you think the following only two packages relate to this problem?

Best regards,
Comment 9 Paul Nasrat 2004-10-07 06:33:53 EDT
Check in the development repo:

Comment 10 L3support 2004-10-08 01:01:16 EDT

Thank you for your kindness.
I will check it.

Comment 11 L3support 2004-10-14 22:45:08 EDT

I'm sorry to be late.

I update the current "iiimf-*" version to "12.0.1-13.svn1943".

And no freeze occurs when I execute the following command on a
# system-config-securitylevel

The problem seems to be fixed in the latest "iiimf-*" version. Thanks.

By the way, is the fixed "iiimf-*" version included in the next RHEL4
release, beta2?

Best regards,

To answer your question: Yup, the fixed iiimf will be in RHEL4 B2.
Thanks for the bug and testing!
