Description Jeff Makus 2007-08-19 19:11:04 EDT
Description of problem:

I find that in Fedora Core 7 that gai-temp applet crashes frequently.  Hardware
is Dell 5100 laptop.  I've attached a bug report in txt format

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Does not happen all the time so it is hard to reproduce the crashes.  Seems good
one day and then next it is not.  I use the applet to watch the CPU temp.

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2007-08-19 19:34:06 EDT
Please install as many missing -debuginfo packages as
necessary to fill in the missing details in the backtrace:

At least:

yum --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo install \
  libgnomeui-debuginfo gtk2-debuginfo glib2-debuginfo \
  gai-debuginfo libbonobo-debuginfo

Btw, the backtrace does not end in GAI.
Do you use any special theme or desktop customisations?
Comment 3 Jeff Makus 2007-08-19 19:43:34 EDT
Ok, I have installed the packages.  I will see what happens next.
No special theme or desktop customization.  Just a .jpg for the background of
the desktop.
Much Thanks for you help and expertise
Comment 4 Michael Schwendt 2007-08-19 21:14:25 EDT
Reassigning. The strange backtrace ends in gtk2 called from gai.

The window manager warnings at the end of the attached log in 
comment 1 give reason to worry. Hardware problems?
Comment 5 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-05 22:43:17 EDT
Any updated backtrace? Is the bug triggered after a cold boot, or just after
resuming from sleep / hibernate?
Comment 6 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-09-17 17:17:24 EDT
ps Michael, gai-temp does not currently use %{?dist} tag in release. The license
is weird too -- in the source it just says "GPL", without any version. Might
want to ask upstream if he means GPL, any version, GPLv2 only, v2+, v3 only, or
v3+ (granted, v3 was not released before package was last updated).

I've been running gai-temp for a full day now and no crash yet. Setting status
to NEEDINFO and will close if there is no more inputs.
Comment 7 Michael Schwendt 2007-09-17 17:51:29 EDT
no %dist tag is fully intentional

GPL+ is following the "GPL (no version)" guidelines
Comment 8 Jeff Makus 2007-09-25 16:10:27 EDT
I have not had a problem for a long time now.  It must have been fixed by an
update to another program or even the kernel??
You may close at any time.  Thanks for your selfless help.
Comment 9 Michel Alexandre Salim 2007-10-04 11:41:11 EDT
Thanks for confirming. It's probably the kernel -- ACPI is a spec only an EU
bureucrat could love.
