Hi,

There was some fixes in the source for those files a while back by Steve Grubb.
 What if you upgrade to the latest rawhide?
Comment 3 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-11 10:50:08 EST
This was the latest rawhide as of yesterday (minus openssl bits)

Now upgrading to today's rawhide
Comment 4 Ray Strode [halfline] 2005-11-11 11:14:14 EST
Hi Nicolas,

Do you have some yum excludes lines in place?

The latest version of gdm is gdm-2.8.0.4-8.

gdm-2.6.0.8-16 hasn't been in rawhide since August.
Comment 5 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-11 11:50:53 EST
Sorry I had downgraded to FC4 gdm today to check - it segfaults too.

After a full sync the segfault is still there

So the bug is in one of the other packages gdm uses - probably hal stuff given
the error messages :

hald-probe-smbi[1937] trap stack segment rip:401147 rsp:7fffff957bc0 error:0
gdm-binary[2193]: segfault at 0000000000000000 rip 00002aaaaeef4eab rsp

$ rpm -q gdm
gdm-2.8.0.4-8
Comment 7 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-11-12 11:32:22 EST
Just to be sure I forced a reinstall of all the rpms in my yum cache (checking
them with rpm -K before), and did a new full rawhide sync, and the problem is
still there
Comment 8 Nicolas Mailhot 2005-12-10 17:20:39 EST
This one seems to have been fixed by one of the latest rawhide updates
