Description Jeremy Katz 2001-03-01 06:06:26 UTC
When ssh'ing into my desktop machine from my laptop and running gtcd, it
aborts and dumps core.

1010 katzj@orthanc:~> gtcd --device=/dev/dvd

** WARNING **: Could not get name service!

** ERROR **: file goad.c: line 660 (real_goad_server_activate): assertion
failed: (name_service != CORBA_OBJECT_NIL)
Aborted (core dumped)

Backtrace from the core file:

To answer the semi-obvious question, yes various other standard X and GNOME
apps work fine from the same ssh session.

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2001-03-01 07:54:34 UTC
gnomecc fails the same way, right?

Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2001-03-01 07:58:52 UTC
Yep; it's probably the session stuff not liking being run over a remote
connection, but it still shouldn't crash as that's non-nice

Comment 3 David Mason 2001-03-01 15:22:57 UTC
copying in Sopwith as the error shows goad failure

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2001-07-12 19:02:17 UTC
A gnome-libs screwup. I suspect it's simply a bad error message rather than
something that should work. 

Upstream as http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=57452, closing here.
