I updated mediawriter to version 3.97.1.
So, when I click on some buttons like "Create LiveUSB" or "Restore", my system freezes.
I used it on Fedora 25 x86_64 and GNOME Wayland session.
I don't have logs about it. And I don't have issue with the version 3.96.0.
Hmm, sorry, I will need some more information. What hardware are you running on? Which graphical drivers, please?
My laptop is a HP Elitebook 8560w.
GPU nVidia Quadro 1000m (nvc0) with nouveau driver.
Any issues with other applications in my case.
Is there something in the journal around the time of the freeze?
Try using journalctl --since -5m
Nothing interesting in the journal around this bug.
I have to reboot my system with hardware button, because TTY or GDM are not available.
Hmm, is it really caused by the mediawriter update? I noticed similar behavior on my system under Wayland but not only in mediawriter but a lot of other XWayland applications, like Opera 12 or konsole.
Is the problem still present on a fully updated Fedora 25 system? If yes, please try downgrading mediawriter using the RPMs from this link: http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=801628 and tell me if 3.96 exhibits the problem too or not.
I don't think there was any change to mediawriter that could cause the problem but I think this is a good start of debugging...
I will test to downgrade the version.
So, the first version of mediawriter during the test day (3.96 I guess) works correctly, I have an error to write on my USB stick but I didn't have this bug at this time.
