Description Marcin Garski 2005-09-12 17:55:28 EDT
When I boot my FC4 box and type dmesg I always see this message:
hald-probe-smbi[4100] trap stack segment rip:4010d0 rsp:7ffffffc6880 error:0

So probably hald-probe-smbios has crashed, I have installed hal-debuginfo but I
don't know how to execute hald-probe-smbios under gdb (runing gdb
/usr/libexec/hald-probe-smbios do nothing, just gives Program exited with code
01., but when I do /etc/init.d/hal restart then in dmesg I see "trap stack
segment"). Can you write me some suggestions?

Me too.

hald-probe-smbi[2533] trap stack segment rip:4010d0 rsp:7fffff82bd10 error:0

kernel 2.6.13-1.1526_FC4

Note that I have both i386 and x86_64 versions of hal installed, which seems
odd, but required for OpenOffice:

 hal                     i386       0.5.2-2          installed         506 k
Removing for dependencies:

Um, any progress here?  Any more info we can provide?
Comment 3 Marcin Garski 2006-03-25 18:23:20 EST
Is there anybody out there? ;) Please reply and I'll try to debug it.
Comment 4 Marcin Garski 2006-05-17 16:36:02 EDT
In hal's changelog we can read:
"2005-10-10  Richard Hughes <richard@hughsie.com>

        * hald/linux2/probing/probe-smbios.c: the smbios prober now works with
        the new version of dmidecode (found in latest Ubuntu and Fedora Core
        Rawhide) that has a different output than the older format.
        I've also cleaned up the file substantially."

I'm not sure if this fix was or wasn't in hal included with FC4. I can only say
when I've upgraded my box to FC5, I don't see this message any more, so I can't
provide you more info. Maybe someone else could, so I will leave this bug open.
Comment 5 Marcin Garski 2006-05-17 16:39:51 EDT
hal-0.5.2 from FC4 was released on 2005-05-12 so this fix wasn't included, but I
don't know it this change in probe-smbios.c is responsible for resolving my problem.
Comment 6 Christian Iseli 2007-01-22 06:54:41 EST
This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 7 Orion Poplawski 2007-01-22 11:56:42 EST
Appears fixed in FC5.
