Description Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-03-09 15:42:57 UTC
Description of problem:
When basket-plugin is installed,
Every time I launched kontact, kontact crashes with:

WeaverThreadLogger: thread (ID: 2) suspended.
WeaverThreadLogger: thread (ID: 3) suspended.
WeaverThreadLogger: thread (ID: 4) suspended.
WeaverThreadLogger: thread (ID: 1) suspended.
QDir::exists: Empty or null file name
QDir::exists: Empty or null file name
*** KMail got signal 11 (Crashing)
[anne@david ~]$ KCrash: crashing... crashRecursionCounter = 2
KCrash: Application Name = kontact path = <unknown> pid = 19533

'locate QDir' merely returns to the prompt.

Someone got the same problem on fedora-list

The solution to this problem is to ship the /usr/lib/libbasketcommon.la with the
package, if not every fedora user will encounter this packaging bug.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install basket-kontact
2. kontact
Actual results:
kontact crashes

Expected results:
kontact should launch successfully

I've encountered this bug in both fc6 and -devel

(easy fix)

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2007-03-09 16:21:33 UTC
I assume you verified that adding the .la file fixed the crasher?

AFAIK, there are other stability problems releated to basket-kontact, but 
that's mostly just hear-say, which all originates with this bug.

Yes I did.

Re: comment #2
make that "... which *may* all originate with this bug".

Comment 5 Aurelien Bompard 2007-03-10 07:50:06 UTC
Strange, I can't reproduce it. Kontact starts just fine with the basket plugin
here, and I have no libbasketcommon.la file.
I've added it to the package however, please tell me if those work for you :

Comment 6 Chitlesh GOORAH 2007-03-11 14:34:20 UTC
It is quite strange as well.
Adding the libbasketcommon.la doesn't fix it at all.

I have 2 users on the same machine and thus the same version of basket-kontact.
However with the (virgin) user kontact crashes each time with the
basket-kontact, but not the (old) user, I use everyday. I think it has something
to do with personal settings on kontact.

I'm closing this bug. I'm no logner having this issue anymore.
