Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 3318
XF86Setup core dumps everytime you want to change your keyboard type with it
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:50 EDT
I am running RedHat 6.0 on an X86 platform configured as
I686 Pentium II 400 Processor
Asus P2B Motherboard
128 Megs memory
Diamond Viper V550 Video card
Creative labs AWE64 PNP sound card
Two 4 GIG IBM SCSI HD's
One 9 GIG Seagate SCSI HD
On board 7890 SCSI controller.
With this configuration, every time I try to change my
keyboard type in the XF86Setup GUI it crashes the app ans
causes an application core dump.
Should you need me to send you a copy of the core, please
let me know and I will be happy to.
Confirmed in test lab, switching from 101-key to 104-key keyboard.
Output of gdb is as follows:
Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x402ed55c in chunk_free (ar_ptr=0x305, p=0x81d7748) at malloc.c:2960
malloc.c:2960: No such file or directory.

->Run through an XF86Setup as follows:
Make Caps Lock an Additional Control
->at this point XF86Setup gets a Segmentation Fault
and dumps a core file. However, the requested change
does take effect.
I'm also getting a core dump from FX86Setup at the end when or before
it attempts to write a new XF86Config file. Xconfigurator works fine,

we do not support XF86Setup, as we ship Xconfigurator instead. XF86Setup will
be removed from the next version of Red Hat Linux.
