hald-probe-smbios - trap stack segment rip:4010d0 rsp:7ffffffc6880 error:0
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:44:16 EST
When I boot my FC4 box and type dmesg I always see this message:
hald-probe-smbi 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?
hald-probe-smbi trap stack segment rip:4010d0 rsp:7fffff82bd10 error:0
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:
gnome-vfs2 i386 2.10.0-5 installed 3.9 M
libgsf i386 1.11.1-2 installed 156 k
libwpd i386 0.8.2-1.fc4 installed 441 k
openoffice.org-calc i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 15 M
openoffice.org-core i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 196 M
openoffice.org-draw i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 2.6 M
openoffice.org-impress i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 4.3 M
openoffice.org-math i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 3.1 M
openoffice.org-writer i386 1:1.9.125-1.1.0.fc4 installed 5.9 M
Um, any progress here? Any more info we can provide?
Is there anybody out there? ;) Please reply and I'll try to debug it.
In hal's changelog we can read:
"2005-10-10 Richard Hughes <email@example.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.
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.
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 ?
Appears fixed in FC5.
