Segmentation fault in libparted, invoked from gparted
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:12:15 EST
Description of problem:
gparted gets a seg fault
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
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
parted gave segmentation fault:
# gparted /dev/sdb
libparted : 1.8.6
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.
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.
