This is a backtrace

Sorry, i'm not able to reproduce this problem with FC4+KDE-3.4.1 update.
Could you please try to find out how this problem can be reproduced? Thanks
Comment 3 Michael 2005-06-29 05:12:21 EDT
Ok, I'll try to trace it.
Comment 4 Patrick Mansfield 2006-01-13 12:01:52 EST
I am also getting intermittent crashes of kicker on an IBM t41 laptop, currently
my system has kdebase-3.5.0-0.1.fc4.

With no external mouse or a usb mouse, the crash happens about once a month.

With a docking station and ps/2 mouse, the crash happens about once a week.

Last crash got a stack trace (I guess kde dialog for crash/stack is new), I will
attach that separately, but I don't think it is useful without the debug kdebase.

If someone has info on using the debug rpm's let me know, I have installed
kdebase debug rpm but I'm not sure if that is enough.

kicker stack trace

stack trace on kicker crash (no symbols).
Comment 6 Ngo Than 2006-01-19 12:55:32 EST
i cannot reproduce this problem here. Could you please install debug package and
try to get new stack trace again. Thanks
Comment 7 Patrick Mansfield 2006-01-19 13:01:44 EST
I have the debug kde installed, and it crashed again on Jan 17 while attached to
the docking station, but the kde stack trace dialog window did not pop up.
Comment 8 Patrick Mansfield 2006-03-29 19:30:27 EST
Crashed again today (Mar 29) ... it has been so long I thought the problem had
somehow been fixed with the latest kdebase.

I still have kdebase debuginfo installed, but there is still no stack trace, and
I don't know how or if the auto-stack trace thing is configured.

Now running:

[palm ~]$ rpm -qa | grep kdebase

Fedora Core 4 is no longer maintained.

Setting status to "INSUFFICIENT_DATA". If you can reproduce this bug in the
