Description mjvaisane 2017-09-28 18:03:38 UTC
Description of problem:
Any graphical application compiled against SDL2 crashes in startup (coredump) with following error:
dbus[4627]: arguments to dbus_type_is_basic() were incorrect, assertion "dbus_type_is_valid (typecode) || typecode == DBUS_TYPE_INVALID" failed in file ../../dbus/dbus-signature.c line 323.
This is normally a bug in some application using the D-Bus library.

  D-Bus not built with -rdynamic so unable to print a backtrace
Aborted (core dumped)

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

How reproducible:
Start any opengl application using SDL2

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install neverball
2. try to run it

1. Download source code of very basic opengl SDL2 app from here: 
2. Install dependencies (g++, SDL2-devel, freeglut-devel)
3. compile app with: 
g++ main.cpp -I /usr/include/SDL2/ -lSDL2  -lGL
4. run app with:

Actual results:
Application crashes with coredump

Expected results:
Application should run

Additional info:
I have tried compiling several SDL2 based apps and all of them are crashing with exactly the same error. For example vice 3.0 (use --with-sdlui2) or fs-uae both are having same problem.
Also, neverball installed from Fedora repos seems to crash with same error, so this seems to be problem in all opengl SDL2 apps.
Fedora 27, latest updates installed as in September 28th.

Comment 1 mjvaisane 2017-09-29 03:11:59 UTC
I have laptop with Intel + Nvidia GPU. Result seems to be same regardless which driver is in use (tested Nvidia driver from negativo repo and pure opensource one).

Is this more related to UDEV than SDL2?

Comment 2 Igor Gnatenko 2017-09-29 07:39:10 UTC
interesting that I can't reproduce this on rawhide (which has same version of SDL2)....

Comment 3 mjvaisane 2017-09-29 11:12:14 UTC
Can I produce more logs? This is new Fedora 27 installation (beta compose 1.3).

Comment 4 mjvaisane 2017-09-29 12:11:57 UTC
OK, I just did clean install of Fedora 27 (beta compose 1.3), under KVM virtual machine, using Vmware virtual GPU.
Installed neverball, and it worked fine.
Then, I upgraded Fedora to newest level with dnf upgrade.
Reboot, and after reboot, I got same error and coredump.

This is https://bugzilla.libsdl.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3854 and
it can be reproduced on F20/x86_64 too. I first thought that
it is related to IME, but unset'ing XMODIFIERS does not seem
to remove the issue.
