Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 262781
KGet crashed when downloading files from samba server with 1000Mbps network connection.
Last modified: 2015-07-13 13:37:18 EDT
Description of problem:
The client connected the samba server in 1Gbps. When KGet tool was downloading a
big (4.7G) file from the server, it would crash if you clicked the "Transfer ->
Timer" menu. Both the server and client were installed RHEL5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
KGet v0.8.5 (Using KDE 3.5.4-11.el5 Fedora-core) (using KDE KDE 3.5.4)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start the samba server and share a big file.
2. Connect the samba server and client in 1000Mbps.
3. At the client, use the KGet tool to download file from the server.
4. When the downloading speed reachs more than 40 MBps (just an
estimated value), Click the menu "Transfer->Timer".
5. KGet will crash and catch the signal 11.

log file of backtrace.
[Changing version to 5.1 and hardware to all.]
I was able to reproduce this on RHEL 5.1 on x86_64. Using Transfer->Timer is
not necessary, just pause & resume the download a number of times and it will
eventually crash when hitting pause.

First of 2 more detailed backtraces of a kget crash. The kdenetwork and
kdelibs debuginfo packages were installed.

Unfortunately, it looks like this will not be fixed upstream. They recommend
upgrading to KDE 4.0.
