Evolution crash on startup
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:06 EST
Description of problem:
evo has been crashing on startup on my fedora devel install for about two weeks
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
[nim@rousalka ~]$ evolution
es menu class init
adding hook target 'source'
Created attachment 114668 [details]
Thanks for this report.
A few more questions:
- which architecture is this occurring on ?
- which version of libgal2 ?
- which version of libgnomecanvas ?
Please can you install
and attach another backtrace? Thanks.
(at first glance, looking at #7, the "type=161306264", in the call of
gnome_canvas_item_new looks very wrong)
Arch : i386
rpm -q libgal2 libgnomecanvas libgal2-debuginfo libgnomecanvas-debuginfo
So the -debug rpms were already installed on the system when I took the last dump
However your question lead me to do a
[root@rousalka ~]# rpm -V libgal2 libgnomecanvas libgal2-debuginfo
-> the libgnomecanvas lib seems corrupted. And yay, after reinstalling this
package everything works! Problem solved, thanks.
BTW that also means there is a bug somewhere else (rpm, yum, kernel...) but
unless I get other errors like this one I won't hunt it.
Strange that eveo was the only gnome bit affected by the libgnomecanvas
Good to hear that it's working.
I'm not sure what could have caused this corruption; if you figure it out,
please let us know.
Not many Gnome apps actually use libgnomecanvas, so I'm not that surprised that
only Evolution was broken (we'll get a better canvas once the Cairo API stabilises)
Thanks for the feedback.
