konq-nox segfaults after loading any page
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:00 EDT
Summary pretty much sums it up -- konq-nox loads fine and everything, but
segfaults after loading a page. (Elements on the page start to appear, and
Happens both on my Libretto with a chips & tech video card and on a Dell
Optiplex with an ati rage pro.
Can't reproduce it here on P3 with a Matrox G400 card. Do you have a backtrace?
Odd. Works fine as root, but as a normal user, crashes with the normal konq-nox
script. However, if I change that script to
/usr/lib/kdenox/konq -qws $@ &>/dev/null
(All env variables set not on the konq command line)
it works fine.
With the normal script, or just
KDEDIRS=/usr/lib/kdenox KDEHOME=/usr/lib/kdenox /usr/lib/kdenox/konq -qws $@
I get segfault as soon as the page starts to load.
Ah. Played around a little bit -- in the second case above, QTDIR
and KDEDIR are already in the environment, and so get set. KDEDIRS and KDEHOME
were not. Duh. The problem turns out to be in setting KDEHOME -- leave it unset,
and no crash.
(Backtrace coming rsn.)

Closing as WONTFIX due to end of life of the Power Tools product line. Please
open a new bug report under the Red Hat Linux product if the component is still
included in the base Red Hat distribution.
