wireless-tools.i386 1:28-0.pre10.4 causes segfault in KDE kicker
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:15 EST
Description of problem:
With wireless-tools.i386 1:28-0.pre10.4 installed from updates-testing, kicker
crashes everytime I start it. Backtrace is hosed due to stack corruption.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
So, I thought that by using updates-testing on my machine I could catch updates
that break things and report them so that they don't get released and affect the
rest of my users. Apparently not. This update has now been released and has
already caused another person's desktop to become totally non-fuctional. Please
Why KDE kicker would break because of this makes no sense whatsoever. KDE may
be doing something very very wrong, here. Than? Any ideas?
it's strange. I cannot reproduce this problem on FC4 with KDE-3.4.2 updates.
Which version of KDE is running on your machine? Could you please
attach the outputs of "rpm -q rpm -q kdelibs kdebase kdenetwork". Thanks
Perhaps you should try with new user!
Crash appears to be caused by the kwireless applet. Removing it from my
kickerrc stops it from crashing, and adding it back causes it to crash.
Does kwireless need a rebuild?
I rebuilt kdenetwork-3.4.2-0.fc4.1 with wireless-tools-28-0.pre10.4 and indeed I
can add the wireless monitor without the kicker crashing.
ok, i will rebuild kdenetwork for FC4 today, many thanks for your report
From User-Agent: XML-RPC
kdenetwork-3.4.2-0.fc4.2 has been pushed for FC4, which should resolve this issue. If these problems are still present in this version, then please make note of it in this bug report.
