Description Denis Leroy 2006-09-08 05:12:10 EDT
On my freshly updated Rawhide VM, found attached core file from
/usr/libexec/gam_server. This is gamin 0.1.7-6.fc6.

(gdb) bt

The path argument ("soundconverter.desktop") was from a built RPM I was
installing at the time. Will try to reproduce and post more info.

Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 07:19:51 EDT
Seems inotify related. John, got any idea about this one?
Comment 3 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 07:22:10 EDT
It fails on the line:
	g_assert (conn->eq);

But it doesn't actually call into the assert, so i guess the problem is
dereferenceing conn. Maybe we can actually believe the conn=0x1 part from gdb.
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 07:25:48 EDT
Actually, it seems like sub->listener points to some bogus memory area in
gam_server_emit_one_event(). (Although sub itself seems to be ok):
Comment 5 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 07:59:36 EDT
running gam_server in valgrind immediately turned up this:
 gchar *ih_sub_get_filename (gchar *pathname)
-       gchar *out;
-       // FIXME: return filename here
-       return out;
+       return g_path_get_basename (pathname);

I dunno if that is the cause of the problem though.
Comment 6 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 08:51:41 EDT
There were some other bugs too. I fixed them in upstream cvs and in
Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2006-09-08 08:54:23 EDT
This fixed a lot more of the gamin test suite too...
Comment 8 Denis Leroy 2006-09-08 08:57:59 EDT
Thanks for the quick response.
Comment 9 John McCutchan 2006-09-08 11:51:55 EDT
Wow, I totally missed that when I committed. Thanks for the quick fix!
