Evolution hangs on close on x86_64
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:52 EST
Description of problem:
I recently started using an x86_64 box. I have found that Evolution hangs on
close more than half the times I try to close it. I have to `pkill evolution`
to make the window go away.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
~50% of the time.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Evolution
2. Read mail
3. Close Evolution (with window X)
The window "INBOX (30 total, 18 unread) - Evolution" is not responding.
Forcing this application to quit will cause you to lose any unsaved changes.
Evolution closes normally.
nfs homedir, 2 IMAP accounts, lots of mail.
I'm running x64 and it never hangs, it might be related w/ nfs home directory.
I'm affraid this information is not enough to inspect possible crash cause.
If someone were to request information on how to track this down, I'd be more
than willing to provide it.
Btw, I guess culprit is imap. I tried adding an imap account, and symptoms i
experienced is send and receive never closes, even pressing Cancel does not
close window but closing window close cross works (might give some hint), and as
you stated it does not close it just make all widgets on gui disabled (might
give another hint to track down bug) and waits forever. You need to kill it to
I'll take a look at it, this does not happen all the time for me, but something
seems like triggers this.
I got the problem on an SMP box. My guess is. It it's not thread save, since it
works fine on my Notebook. But I can make it on hang on the SMP box by just
clicking to SEND/RECEIVE mail more then once. SMP worked fine with FC5.
See bug #208724. It's possible these two are related.
Please try upgrading to evolution-data-server-1.8.2-2.fc6, which should be in
Fedora Updates Testing sometime today or tomorrow.
from updates testing.
Works for me, on my SMP machine. Doesn't hang anymore.
I've had the same experience on my X86_64 SMP box.
okay, evolution-data-server-1.8.2-2.fc6 for x86_64 seems to have worked for me.
Awesome! Glad to hear it's working better.
I'll wait until this hits Fedora Updates before closing.
evolution-data-server-1.8.2-2.fc6 does not hang me, either.
It doesn't hang on close for me, either.
This bug is closed in FC6 Updates.
Closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
