OOo randomly dies
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:04 EST
Description of problem:
OOo is randomly quitting without any notice or throwback when run from the
command line or launcher
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use OOo writer post 19/04/05 updates
OOo dies randomly
OOo not dying randomly
This may be a libgcj related problem
still there in 1.9.93 ?
Seems to be gone with 1.9.96-2 and up-to-date rawhide.
Actually, it's still there in 1.9.100-1. It seems to be that the majority of the
crashes are straight after a save (via clicking on the disc icon). There is
never any sort of warning and the file saved always has a zero bite size.
I am not sure if my problem is similar to this, but here are the steps to
reproduce it anyway on FC4 test 3 (with all official rawhide updates as of 20
1. Create a new document in OO Writer
2. Leave couple of blank lines
3. Type in couple of more lines, say "Section 1" and "Section 2"
4. Format those lines as the "Heading 1".
5. Insert a Table of Contents and a page break just above those lines.
6. Insert a header and type something there.
7. Save the document.
8. Right click on the TOC, and select Update Indexes/tables..
9. The header should become invisible.
10. Now try to save the document, and observe that OO Writer crashes and leaves
a zero byte file behind.
(I lost couple of my assignments this way, but luckily I had the "auto save"
feature turned on, which saved most of my documents.)
I just had a similar experience as described here. Also had OOo-1.9.100-1 crash
right after a save. After the crash the document I was saving suddenly had 0
bytes length while it was 3 pages long before the crash. No harm done as I had a
backup but still. Hope this will be fixed soon.
By the looks of it (as reported on the f-t-list last night), CTRL-S works fine,
so it looks like the problem is clicking on the icon.
1.9.104 should be in rawhide today.
Looks like things are happy again in 1.9.104 on this one, but PDF export seems
to kill the software. Can someone please check this?
will be ok in >= 1.9.108-2
pushed fc4-updates/rawhide, whenever it shows up on mirrors
