Description Alain D D Williams 2004-11-26 09:49:32 UTC
Description of problem:

Use of kaddressbook distribution list editor crashes linux. This is
complete, it cannot be pinged from elsewhere. This only happens when
it is run on the local display, ie a remote X session seems safe.

I have put this against kaddressbook since that is how I found the
problem, but it should really belong elsewhere - probably X
I have tried it under different window managers and it still crashes.

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

Latest fully patched system as of today.
Using kaddressbook (against the same data) yesterday on fedora 2 I had
no problems.

How reproducible:

Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:

Run kmail


Settings -> Show Extension Bar -> Distribution List Editor


I have several (10) distribution lists each with many addresses, total
about 900; so you may need to create a few lists & populate them. I
have not tried this with an empty address book.


Just to the left of 'New List ...' there is a pull down list of the
distribution lists. To get the system to crash I just select one list,
then select another, ... repeat a few times.
Actual results:

System crashes. Can't ping it.

Expected results:

System not crash.

X config file

Since X is likely to be implicated somewhere, I attach the X config file.

Comment 2 Ngo Than 2004-11-27 12:02:58 UTC
sorry, i cannot reproduce this problem here with your instructions.

it looks like a hardware problem here, in this case X problem. I
assign it to xorg-x11.

Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2005-02-01 06:58:32 UTC
Please update your system with all Fedora Core 3 updates that have
been released by Red Hat, and reboot the system into the latest
update kernel.

After you've updated your system and rebooted, please try to
reproduce the problem.  If the problem still occurs, please attach
your X server log file, config file, and /var/log/messages, as
individual uncompressed file attachments using the link below.

Additionally, please provide the output of "lsmod".

Thanks in advance.

as asked for -- the system was brought up to date this morning (last done a
week ago) - one side effect of that is that the external mouse buttons (this is
a laptop) no longer work, to click/select I need to use the on-chassis buttons.
The external mouse is a Thrust optical wheel mouse (AMI mouse 2505 optical).

/var/log/messages -- trimmed down to a couple of reboots.

I was playing with mouseconfig to try to get the external mouse to work (see
previous item in bugzilla).

By the way -- the latest fixes don't change this problem ... just loading kmail
makes the system crash with the kmail message 'initialising' in the bottom LH
of the kmail window.
