Description Peter H. Jones 2007-09-14 13:32:37 EDT
Description of problem:
gparted gets a seg fault

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

How reproducible:
Frequent, but I maybe not predictable. Seems to happen at the conclusion
of a parted operation

Steps to Reproduce:
1. erased a very corrupted ext3 file system (hung install of fc8t2 to a pen 4G
pen drive); I powered off without dismounting 
2. could not recover with e2fsck
3. used parted to erase the single ext3 partition and re-create it
Actual results:
parted gave segmentation fault:

# gparted /dev/sdb
libparted : 1.8.6
Segmentation fault

Expected results:
normal exit

Additional info:
I plan to install a debugging version of parted, to see if I can get more info.

Resembles bug #251504, but I wasn't playing with removable media.

I can get a segmentation fault every time when I try to create an MSDOS label.
Comment 2 Deji Akingunola 2007-10-30 17:15:05 EDT
This is most likey a dup of bug #309251, which has just been fixed. Please test,
and re-open if gparted-0.3.3-13.fc8 doesn't fix it.
