Word file that crashes oowriter here
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-04 03:38:24 EDT
It doesn't crash for me when loaded, but that stack trace contains reference to
cups, so it may happen with a specific printer driver, or cups configuration.
What printer configuration do you have ?
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-07-04 04:05:07 EDT
I don't understand that stack trace format -- when were the top two lines
involved in the stack, and what signal caused the crash?

Coalan: is there any way to get a proper core file from OOo, or at least to get
it to crash under gdb with debuginfo packages installed?
Comment 4 Caolan McNamara 2005-07-04 04:21:53 EDT
yeah, install the massive debuginfo packages and 

gdb /usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/soffice.bin
(gdb) run -writer

The top two few lines are just the stack trace of the stack dumper itself where
it calls backtrace of /usr/include/execinfo.h
Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2005-07-04 04:42:03 EDT

1. Please install the cups-debuginfo package with the same version and release
as the cups package you have installed (which is that btw?).

2. Then run 'gdb --args /usr/lib/openoffice.org/program/soffice.bin -writer' and
enter 'run' at the (gdb) prompt.  Then, when it crashes, enter 'bt' to get the
stack trace.

3. Also useful is the output of 'lpstat -s', and some information about how you
have configured CUPS.
Comment 6 Horst H. von Brand 2005-07-04 14:48:47 EDT
1. cups-1.1.23-16
2. gdb --args /usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin -writer Estado\
del\ arte.doc # (I assume the offending file has to be there too...)

This now works fine. I don't know what could do this... at home (where this
happened), I don't have access to the networked printer here. And I hadn't the
Epson printer either. Funny thing is that I had opened another .doc (no trouble
there), and opened this one immediately after closing oowriter with the other
one. I did never get any trouble with OOo before (but then, rawhide has updated
everything there a few times; and I'm no fan of WYSIWYG word processing, so...)

3. lpstat -s
system default destination: printer
device for epson: usb:/dev/usb/lp0
device for printer: ipp://lp-red.inf.utfsm.cl/printers/queue1

What exactly about the CUPS mess?
Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2005-07-05 05:14:58 EDT
Can you try 'ulimit -c unlimited' and running:

/usr/lib/openoffice.org2.0/program/soffice.bin -writer

then opening the file?  Do you get a core dump then?  Without a proper stack
trace this will not be very easy at all to debug.
Comment 8 Horst H. von Brand 2005-07-11 17:26:07 EDT
I tried several times, and could not reproduce the crash. Sorry.
