hald gets "general protection"
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:49:14 EST
Description of problem:
This is what started to show up in logs recently:
hald general protection rip:37d0a75060 rsp:7fff178c5f28 error:0
Unfortunately no core file I can find. If you login after that
then a deskop is quite unhappy and various alerts that things do
not work show up. 'hald' indeed is dead.
I got three of these recently. They are preceded directly with messages
(the same datestamp) like those:
gconfd (root-12296): Resolved address
"xml:readonly:/etc/gconf/gconf.xml.defaults" to a read-only configuration source
at position 2
gconfd (root-12296): Exiting
kernel: hald general protection ....
AFAICT in all cases this really meant a logout from a gnome-session.
Two times it was after a bunch up updates was applied but other time
I do not see anything special. OTOH this does not happen after
every logout. "rip:37d0a75060 rsp:7ffffa1e1848 error:0" is the same

I'll try to hunt this down for the next git snapshot (which is in a couple of
Can it be consolekit related? I've been experiencing similar issue when
switching user using F-U-S-A.
Is this still happening with hal-0.5.9-0.git20070304.fc7? Thanks.

I did not see that so far but I did not have a recipe to recreate
that at will. I intended to wait a bit ...
If previous patterns would be kept then hald should crash by now and
the last one I have seen was immediately after an update (which will
be still the previous version running).
I guess that I will close that at this moment and if something
bad will happen then will reopen.
