Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 144814
Gedit crashes when started with argument and from Nautilus.
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:05 EST
Description of problem: Issuing 'gedit filename.txt' or right-
clicking the text file from Nautilus and choosing Open With | Gedit
causes it to crash. Starting Gedit alone, then using Open to browse
to the file works.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): gedit-
2.2.2-1 for ia64
How reproducible: Start gedit from the CLI with filename argument or
right-click the filename and choose Open With | Gedit.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Nautilus.
2. Browse to text file.
3. Right-click and chose Open With | Gedit.
Actual results: GLib-ERROR **: gmem.c:140: failed to allocate
6917529027641099397 bytes aborting...
Expected results: The text file should open in gedit.
Additional info: Doesn't look good when the default text editor
crashes in an 'Enterprise' OS.
This is already filed, and has been fixed (Bug 137430, RHBA-2004:618).
The fix will come out with RHEL3 Update 5 as it was too late for U4.
Please download the test packages at
http://people.redhat.com/dcbw/gedit-2.2.2-3.ia64.rpm and report here
if they fix the problem or not.
