Description Craig Schlenter 2008-01-28 06:13:04 EST
Description of problem:

$ qtdemo-qt4 
Segmentation fault

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


I'd install the debuginfo package but it's 151Megs!! I'm hoping
someone can reproduce this without me having to download that to
get more info.
Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2008-01-28 12:46:52 EST
confirmed (on x86_64). ugh.
Comment 2 Ngo Than 2008-01-28 13:21:33 EST
it seems one of the qt-copy patches caused the crash in Qt!
Comment 3 Rex Dieter 2008-01-28 13:36:54 EST
I tried downgrading to qt4-4.2.3-3.fc9, and I'm still seeing the crash, so that
seems to rule out blaming qt-copy.
Comment 4 Rex Dieter 2008-01-28 13:47:55 EST
I'm installing the gargantuan qt4-debuginfo now, see if we can get a useful trace.
Comment 5 Rex Dieter 2008-01-28 13:55:47 EST
If I'm reading this right, this may not be qt4's fault:

Comment 6 Craig Schlenter 2008-01-29 00:57:30 EST
The first segfault I see in /var/log/messages is on 16 Jan btw. but I can't
remember when last the demo had actually worked before then :(

I'm pulling down the debuginfo thing slowly to see if my backtrace is
any different (I'm on a 32 bit machine) and will post details in a few
Comment 7 Craig Schlenter 2008-01-29 06:34:44 EST
Somewhat similar to your backtrace:

(gdb) quit
The program is running.  Exit anyway? (y or n) y
[craig@craigdell ~]$ rpm -qf /usr/lib/dri/i915_dri.so /usr/lib/libGL.so.1

I'll see if I can downgrade mesa later to see what happens ...
Comment 8 Craig Schlenter 2008-01-29 07:37:03 EST
Hmmm ... downgrading to mesa-libGL-7.1-0.3.fc9.i386.rpm didn't help but using
mesa-libGL-7.0.1-7.fc8.i386.rpm seems to have made the program start again.

I've changed component from "qt" to "mesa" but I'm ignorant of how bugzilla
is supposed to work ... I suppose it should be assigned to ajax?

Comment 9 Craig Schlenter 2008-01-29 07:41:36 EST
ah ... there's a reassign thing at the bottom of the form. I'll click on that
and see what happens...
Comment 10 Rex Dieter 2008-02-21 23:54:05 EST
Tried again today, after a couple of rawhide update iterations, I see something
new (intelInitDriver?)
$ qtdemo-qt4

Segmentation fault
Comment 11 Rex Dieter 2008-02-23 14:18:38 EST
Update to rawthide today and things work happily again, some combination of:
